WhatsApp Updates Its iOS App With Unique 'Storage Usage' Feature

The latest WhatsApp update for iOS fixes some bugs and brings in 'Archive' and 'Storage Usage' features.


WhatsApp for iOS has recently received a new updated which is said to be focused more on fixing some bugs.

However, the latest update also brings in a unique 'Storage Usage' feature and additional archive options.

Summing up, we can tell that, the iOS users will now be able to archive chats with just one swipe much like how we would experience in Gmail and other email client apps.

The swipe right gesture which first used to bring out the more and the delete options, now gives an additional archive button.

Coming to the 'Storage Usage' feature, it is a new additional option which can be found in the 'Accounts' tab.

This new feature is said to give users details about the amount of space being used by 'chats' on the device.

It is also claimed that the new feature gives the total amount of space and additionally would let its users know which groups or individual chats are eating up more space than the other.

In short, this feature would help its users understand the storage usage just as its name hints.

While some may feel that it is not that much of a need, we do guess this feature to be extremely handy and weed out unnecessary chats eating up space on smartphones.

But, we may expect it soon in Android too.
