It is usually one of the main problems with using any messaging app: even if it is not the fault of the application itself, they all end up eating up the phone’s storage due to the huge amount of photos, videos and audios that are shared in the chats. From applications like WhatsApp it is possible to manage that space occupied by the different files. And, knowing that it never hurts to extend the aid, the new setting is a great addition.
Temporary messages free up storage
It is clear that if you program the deletion of all the messages that come to your WhatsApp, you will surely save space because with those messages deleted too file storage is released. With this premise in mind, WhatsApp has reinforced the configuration menus so that saving space is much easier.
As WaBetaInfo discovered, and we have been able to test on our own phones, WhatsApp added a new setting in the file cleanup menu. Alluding to the messages that disappear, the platform makes this convenient tool known so that all users can know that files can be emptied automatically; thereby achieving considerable savings in gigabytes.
The tweak begins to appear in the Android dude beta for some accounts. And it complements perfectly with another of the novelties that WhatsApp introduced in its messaging: the possibility of applying temporary messages in block to the groups that you want.
Since the messages will disappear from the phone, along with all received attachments, WhatsApp will take care of cleaning on its own; with the advantage in space, privacy and security that this implies: the less trace we leave in certain chats, the more private the conversations will be.
