WhatsApp, a Facebook-owned chat app, has redesigned its storage management tool for users to easily identify, review, and bulk delete content from their phones.
The messaging platform says it now offers easy cleanup suggestions by bucketing both large files and media that has been forwarded many times, sorting files by size in descending order, and providing a way to preview files before deleting them.
“You can also see a preview of media before selecting one or multiple items to delete,” the company said in a statement.
The new storage management tools are rolling out to users worldwide this week. When available, users can navigate to the new tool by going to Settings > Storage and data > Manage storage.
We’ve made it easy to review, bulk delete items and free up space. This new storage management tool can be found in Settings > Storage and Data > Manage Storage. pic.twitter.com/eIMFZ1Oyzr
