The company is working on a new feature that will not help users see how much space their media files and documents are consuming on their smartphones, but it will also enable users to manage those files easily.

The redesign, as per a report by WABetaInfo, will comprise of three sections. The first section will show a bar graph of the storage space used. The second section will show suggested clean up option. Here WhatsApp will show forwarded files and large files separately such that users can delete the files that they deem are not necessary.
