The problem that this app brings is that it fills up your phone’s memory. The app automatically downloads the pictures, videos, etc that are sent to you. The automatic download seems to be set by default, but you can actually switch it off and save your memory.
The process of turning the auto download off is not very complicated. What you need to do is explore your settings and get a better idea of how the app works. WhatsApp downloads automatically audio, video files and pictures, but you can choose what you want to automatically download by checking in a box. For example, most of the users have the picture box checked and the app downloads without asking for permission. You can even choose if you want the app to download files using your Wi-Fi or your data. The only option you cannot uncheck is the voice message one, because voice messages are downloaded for better quality.
