WhatsApp, India’s favourite messaging app is often the most irritating app on your phone too. It seems Indians are flooding WhatsApp with “good morning” messages, which are also affecting smartphones.
According to a report from Wall Street Journal, India, the fastest growing smartphone market, is obsessed with morning greetings. Google researchers in Silicon Valley found that these greetings in form of GIFs, images or videos eat up a huge chunk of your smartphone’s memory.
Well, there are ways to avoid this, and here’s how.
The simplest and a highly adopted way is to open your photo albums > Go To WhatsApp images folder > Delete the images you no longer need.
