WhatsApp Will Soon Roll Out New Storage Feature
New WhatsApp Storage Feature
Do you like WhatsApp but hate how much storage it consumes on your mobile phone? Probably you do. WhatsApp new storage feature which is not yet rolled out will bring help to you and enable you to manage WhatsApp storage consumption on your mobile device.
According to WABetaInfo (Online channel that tracks changes and updates on WhatsApp), WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new feature that will allow users to better manage their device storage usage. This feature is still in Beta version and still not available for everyone.
The new storage feature will enable users to see files that are occupying too much space of your phone storage so that you can delete them if you want to free up some space.
WABetaInfo report on this new feature is as follows;
We have announced new tools for Storage Usage some months ago, that should help the user to free up space on the phone, exploring all WhatsApp media.
The first tool was a filter that allowed to find forwarded and large files announced in this article. However those tools were like a prototype, something that had to be improved before the release (in fact features that are under development are used to be changed before the activation), and today we can show how these tools are organized in the new redesigned Storage Usage section.
We have to pay attention to this screenshot, in order to understand which features Storage Usage will offer.
- The first section has a storage bar, useful to understand the portion of space occupied by WhatsApp (all your media).
- The second section helps us to review all shared files, in order to delete unnecessary media, so we can free up space. Here we can see forwarded and large files (and we can also sort them), with a completely different UI than the one published in the old article.
- The last section contains the list of our chats as usual, with the possibility to search a specific chat.
Note that these features are not available and are under development bull will roll out soon. The report also says the feature will also be available for IOS users and are still under development.
