WhatsApp brings various features for the ease and convenience of its users time by time to make the application more reliable and comfortable in use. The largest media sharing platform is now rolling out with another interesting and useful feature that is directly applicable for the storage management. According to the company, this will make cleanup more organized by helping you identify, select, and bulk delete files like random GIFs, memes, pictures, and videos that are being shared.
The new feature collects large files and media that you’ve received multiple times so you can delete them in bulk. It also sorts files in descending order by size to help the user decide what to delete first. Additionally, to prevent any accidental deletion, the feature gives you a preview of the media you want to delete. You see a lot like this before sending multiple files to chat.
To access the feature, go to Settings > Storage and data > Manage storage. However, if you don’t want to save any media you receive via WhatsApp, you can always switch off WhatsApp’s default autosave setting for files by going to Settings.
