How to free memory on your smartphone via WhatsApp

Not having enough memory on your smartphone is one of the most common problems that can make anyone crazy. Who has not trembled to see on the screen of his mobile "Your smartphone is full", "there is not enough memory on your device" or one of its variants? With this WhatsApp trick you can free several gigabytes of memory on your smartphone.

If you're like me, you probably spend more than half of the day discussing WhatsApp, so the application fills up quickly with messages, photos, videos or other voice messages.

Even if the autoloading is disabled, all the files you receive in WhatsApp – audios, videos, mms, stickers, photos – remain stocked in the app and occupy a valuable space that you could use for many other things.
