WhatsApp: how to erase memory and free space on smartphone

WhatsApp is an amazing platform to send messages, audio clips, files, photos, stickers and stickers, or simply talk in groups. On the other hand, with the accumulation of these files it is advisable to free up space on the smartphone.

This can be done in several ways to empty the phone’s storage, something that will also improve the smartphone’s performance if little space is left. So, follow our advice with this tip for WhatsApp.

1. You can clear the cache memory of WhatsApp for Android

Settings and space occupied by the WhatsApp application
  1. Opens the Definitions on the Android device
  2. Navigate – find and select – the menu applications (application management)
  3. Search for the application Whatsapp – you can use the magnifying glass in the list of applications
  4. Access details on Storage Utilization
  5. Tap the option – Clear cache

The “cache” is a memory of extremely fast access, being used to store details and information of the application to speed up its use. Therefore, it serves for WhatsApp to open faster on your smartphone.

By clearing the cache, you won’t lose any WhatsApp files, files, photos or videos. This operation can be done periodically when we really need extra space in the internal storage of the Android smartphone.

It is a memory used for faster access to applications and deleting it will immediately free up some space.

2. Clearing WhatsApp data will free up more memory space

  1. Opens the Definitions on the Android device
  2. Navigate – find and select – the menu applications
  3. Search for the application Whatsapp
  4. Access details on Storage Utilization
  5. Tap the option – Clear data

Clearing this data will free up considerably more memory on your phone or mobile device, however, it is a more invasive operation. When opening WhatsApp again you will have to enter your credentials as if you were configuring a new phone.

It is also worth mentioning that this procedure will delete all files and messages received in the platform’s private groups and chats. This step does not delete the WhatsApp images and videos present, for example, in the smartphone Gallery.

It is a procedure that allows you to recover more memory quickly, but you will lose recent messages and chats, in addition to having to do the Login on the platform. It is convenient to have a backup conversations.

3. Delete WhatsApp photos, videos and albums


  1. Opens the Gallery on the Android device
  2. In the grid view, find the folders WhatsApp Video and WhatsApp Images
  3. You can delete folders and all their contents
  4. Alternatively, you can open each folder and delete the content that doesn’t matter

This same procedure can be done through other steps, or using other third-party applications such as Google’s Files, our recommendation for managing storage and freeing smartphone memory.

Anyway, this is where WhatsApp takes up more space on the smartphone, as you receive images, videos and other multimedia content, they fill the internal storage.

That said, to free up space in the internal memory of Android you can also delete these files directly in the WhatsApp application. To do this, from a chat, click on the options menu (3 vertical dots), access the “Group Files“, and from there you can also manage it. Additionally, you can click on the”MoreClear conversation“.

Before you go, discover the best private messaging apps, with options that respect your privacy. In addition, see the best online security solutions, with several effective VPNs with good pricing plans.
