The new tool will be “rolling out to users worldwide this week,” says the Facebook-owned company, and will be available in the app by heading to Settings > Storage and data > Manage storage.

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.”
