WhatsApp can be a menace a times, especially when it comes to your storage space. Friends and family spam the platform with memes, photos and videos, and largely you won't give a second look at them. However, they keep occupying your phone's storage space. 

Now, WhatsApp has decided to make it easier for users to keep up space, without the need to delete everything, including a few things you may care about. The app will come with a new built-in storage management feature for Android users. It will allow deleting specific file types in bulk. 

So, it will help delete all the multimedia files such as JPEG, GIFs, audio files, videos, documents and so on, and save your conversations. This means, you can choose to delete all videos of gifs, while saving the rest. Those who often face the space issue will find this new feature very handy as it will put an end to the need to manually select each file. 

Now, this upcoming feature was spotted by Android police and the report adds that users need to go to Settings and Data and Storage Usage and you will find conversations depending upon how much space they consume. You can view a detailed breakdown of the file types. 

The feature hasn't been rolled out and is available in the beta version here.
