One of the biggest downsides to using WhatsApp remains its device-specific attachment. The application simply does not have the ability to cloud storage, which is why smartphones often suffer from an overload of unnecessary information. If you use WhatsApp regularly, then your device is definitely filled with unnecessary junk in the form of old photos and videos.
The developers finally paid attention to this and are trying to somehow solve this problem. Soon, the app will have built-in ability to conveniently delete files you don’t need.
As reported by the WABetaInfo website, WhatsApp will soon start sending an updated user interface for the storage section that will allow you to easily view and delete large files that you may no longer need.
The Data and Storage section will completely change the look. At the top, you will see a storage line where your media and other files will be separated. Below there are two sections: Forwarded Files and Large Files with the ability to view and delete unneeded files to free up more space.
Most of the garbage that the application accumulates can be associated with the transferred files from various groups. With the updated interface, you can easily understand what has been uploaded and what can be deleted. Under these two sections, you will see your chats, both group and individual, and how much space they take up on your device.
It should be understood that the new section is still under development. So there is still a big chance that this feature will be better before the official release. We expect that there will be beta testing first before submitting the new version to all users.
WhatsApp Beta build reveals Multiple Devices features, might release soon!
WhatsApp has recently rolled out a new Beta build update through its Google Play Beta Program. The new beta version brings the version 126.96.36.199 to the testers. The new beta build hints towards a possible Multiple Devices features. It confirm that the feature is indeed in early development. This is not the first time we’re hearing about this feature. In fact, Multiple Devices has appeared on the limelight numerous times. We even hear about it last month in a report by WABetaInfo.
As per the new development, it looks like WhatsApp will replace its ‘WhatsApp Web’ feature with a new option called ‘Linked Devices’. This new feature will bring Multiple Devices support allowing users to run the same WhatsApp number on multiple devices. According to the new build, it looks like the devices limit is 4. Meaning you can run your account on four devices simultaneously. At the time of writing this, WhatsApp is working on a user interface to manage all the Linked Devices.
