WhatsApp has updated its storage management tool to allow its users to detect and remove large files and free up space on their smartphones in an easier way. The company announced that the new tool will be rolled out worldwide this week.
Owned by Facebook, WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps worldwide with over 2 billion monthly active users. The app is available in more than 180 countries and 60 different languages. As announced by Mark Zuckerberg at the Q3 2020 earnings call, it’s now delivering roughly 100 billion messages a day.

WhatsApp is constantly updating its mobile app with new & optimized features in order to keep its users satisfied and provide them with a much better user experience. The company recently rolled out disappearing messages which vanish after 7 days and now it’s getting ready to launch its new storage management tool to make it easier for users to free up space on their devices.
The app already has a storage management tool but it basically lists all of your available chats with the number of messages, photos, videos and GIFs previously sent, and shows you the amount of space they take up. It also allows you to delete each category with a single click. It’s useful, but doesn’t give you much ability to control your storage.
WhatsApp’s redesigned store management tool will enable you to have more control over your storage and offer you more categories, such as ‘’Forwarded Many Times’’ and ‘’Larger Than 5 MB’’ that will make it much easier to free up your storage space.
The company said that it will be ‘’rolling out to users worldwide this week,’’ and users will be able to access it by going to Settings > Storage and data > Manage store.
