WhatsApp Beta update for Android brings granular storage storage management

WhatsApp Beta update for Android brings granular storage storage management”

Up to now, those using the stable version of the Facebook-owned chat app can either delete an entire conversation, including the photos and videos attached to it or delete multiple messages by selecting the ones you want to delete, which will also include media files attached to it.

First of all you need to be a beta tester of WhatsApp for Android to get this update. The feature which is already available for iOS users for quite some time lets users delete chats straight away from the storage page and take better control of the space available in the WhatsApp.

According to the Daily Mail, the feature was included in the code for version 2.17.30 of the app, but WhatsApp still needed to enable it. Then tap on Data and storage usage.

As well as displaying exactly how many of these message types have been exchanged, the screen also shows you how much space each type of message is using up.

The particular feature was introduced earlier this year in January for iOS and was missing in Android since then.

According to WABetaInfo report, the messaging app is finally testing the feature and it will be called as "Delete for Everyone". In the beta version, the app can be downloaded just by becoming a beta member through the Google Play Store. Not only this, it details how much storage on your phone is being consumed by images, audio messages, videos, GIFs and Documents in each chat. Especially something like GIFs and Videos - which might be fun when you see them but end up occupying a ton of space afterwards. "It will be remotely enabled later and seen that WhatsApp "enabled" their servers for the Delete for Everyone feature, it may really be enabled soon", the site has posted on Twitter.

WABetaInfo said in a tweet that the server works and will allow users to successfully recall a message they have sent.
