WhatsApp begins testing multi-device logins, improved search, chat clearing

With WhatsApp constantly evolving, new features such as the multi-device login support are long overdue. However, it looks as though the Facebook-owned firm has started testing this plus a ton of other features with the latest beta updates.

More information has surfaced about the upcoming Storage Usage feature, courtesy of WABetaInfo. The upcoming Storage Usage feature should help you better manage how WhatsApp utilizes your smartphone storage space.

With some extra digging, WABetaInfo found new evidence of enhanced features like the ability to find forwarded and large files from chats and contacts. Essentially you will be able to instantly filter forwarded media and large files, making it easier to remove them from your device and free up precious storage.

The upcoming “Storage usage” menu will include a handy bar to give you a visual indicator of just what is clogging up your smartphone. You can still see just which chats are taking up the most of your internal storage too, with the contact image and name listed alongside the space used.


It’s worth noting that none of the features mentioned are yet “live” but active development is ongoing, meaning that we’ll likely see them in a future update.
