Whatsapp is now rolling out a new update that will make it much easier for users to delete GIFS videos and images that are stored on their smartphone in a bulk manner. It is noted that multimedia items such as photos videos and GIFS can take up a lot of a device’s storage space over time and until now there was no way to delete these items from Whatsapp in a bulk manner and you had to do it all manually.
The app is currently owned by Facebook and has introduced a new storage management tool which allows users to manage their photos and videos much more effectively and it will also allow them to identify and bulk-delete photos that may be clogging up a person’s phone. Clean up suggestions are also available from Whatsapp which allow users to delete and group both large files together that have been forwarded a large number of times and also by organizing the media in descending or ascending order in terms of importance and their overall creation date. The files can also be previewed before they are deleted.
