WhatsApp and its popularity is not unknown to the smart internet users of today. Everyone knows how to use it and they know its features like the back of their hand.

Finally, iOS users have nothing to crib about. This is because they are no longer getting the second treatment.
A new feature, known as Storage usage has been made available only to the iOS users as of now. The versions of iOS that can use this feature are the iOS 7 and iOS 8, so if you have an iPhone that runs on any of these two features, you are in luck.
Apart from the Storage Usage feature, WhatsApp has also introduced the additional archive option, which is available just beside each chat. This update has already been made available to iPhone6. If you are not able to get these two features, then it means that you are running an older version of the application. The iTunes App Store would have the v2.12.3 for free.
The new version of the application brings about a lot of new features and bug fixes, that help the application run much better than before. The people who have an iPhone6, and are using the WhatsApp voice call facility, must download this version of the application, because the calling facility is much better than previous versions.
Asides, videos can be shared in slow motions and there are many other facilities that make the application a must have on everyone’s iPhone 6.
WhatsApp new Storage usage facility can be accessed when you go to the accounts tab. The feature will be able to tell you how much storage which group chat is consuming. This is a really helpful feature and it helps in storage management.
Also, it will help you identify which messages have eaten up the maximum space, so they can be deleted if not required.
The archive feature is also very helpful because it has been designed in a way that the iOS user can archive the chat just with one swipe. If the user can swipe right, they will get the archiving option. This option will also help you to get the delete icon.
