The current WhatsApp Storage Usage tool simply sorts all available chats by the amount of space they take up, listing the number of messages, photos, GIFs, and videos in each chat. It lets the user delete each category with a few taps.
Moreover, this tool will let users review and delete bulk items from WhatsApp so that they can free up the storage on their devices. It will offer to clear thumbnails of the content, and groups this data in categories including “Forwarded many times” and “Larger than 5 MB.”
The new change, however, revamps that experience by providing an all-new interface. It comes with a dedicated bar to show storage consumed by the app media content, alongside other apps.
In addition to this, a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp might soon roll out a multi-device support feature as well. It is reportedly under development right now. The report reveals that it will allow users to log in from four different devices at the same time.
