From now on, you can manage your WhatsApp storage to free up space on your Android device.
iOS and Windows Phone users already had this feature for a while.
Via WhatsApp Settings> Data & Storage > Storage usage, you will see an overview of your chats in order of size.
Click on a chat and you will see the storage by category.
Hit “Manage messages” at the bottom, and you can select and remove by category: text messages, contacts (vcards), locations, images, GIFs, videos, audio and documents.
