WhatsApp is Popular and User-Friendly

WhatsApp is a convenient way to send texts, photos, and videos to friends and family — regardless of where they live. You can even make long-distance calls for free! That’s because WhatsApp uses a Wi-Fi connection for communication, as opposed to running up your phone bill or using your precious data. Of course, you need to first connect your Android to the Internet to take advantage of WhatsApp’s features.

How WhatsApp Eats Up Your Storage Space

You’re probably wondering what’s going on with the app growing in size, or even thinking of deleting your WhatsApp app entirely because of this issue. But hold that overeager finger! The problem and its solution are both very straightforward. Essentially, if you haven’t switched off the “Auto Download” setting, WhatsApp is saving every photo and video you receive.

Like most users, you probably receive a lot of silly memes and funny selfies from your contacts. These files are entertaining at the time, but there’s no reason to keep them forever. Indeed, over time, the photos and videos will accumulate, taking up increasing amounts of storage and even slowing down your device. Now, you could go into your Android and delete the entire media folder for WhatsApp, but WhatsApp Cleaner is a better, faster, and more user-friendly way of revitalizing the app.
