Whatsapp woes

Woes -
Mostly forwards
Horrible Jokes, particularly lame husband wife jokes
Hoaxes
Meaningless videos.
And above all, 'Oh so sweet thanks for sharing' type "feel good Stuff" which actually makes me
And it gobbles up a lot of memory.

But for
Few exceptions include messages i get from other EC members

REmedy
So, for me it is a quick scan and 'delete all messages.' Some useful videos sent by an ECian are saved for later viewing.
Also any meeting or address is forwarded as an email before a purge which happens some 4 times a day.

Unfortunately, in case of better half, this 2% useful stuff is buried within all these MBs of garbage

Re: Whatsapp woes

Same here,from the past few months I had been copying all the videos and pictures to my PC but now I just connect the phone to the PC,go to the phone's whatsapp->media->videos-> "CTRL A" "Delete".
was tired of the warning every few days storage space running out please delete some data for phone to continue.
Imp messages/video/audio I forward to my email at the same time.
Next I will delete videos/pictures/audios as soon as I view them.

Re: Whatsapp woes

It's easier to set whatsapp to not auto-download the photos and videos.

step 1 - Here's how to do it: WhatsApp > settings > save to camera roll (off)

To clear all data from WhatsApp (from the app itself, if you did step 1): WhatsApp > settings > clear all chats

There are similar settings in Android. But I think you already know this.

Re: Whatsapp woes

But thats not the solution,I want videos to autodownload from my family groups there are some people who really send informative vdos and there are some groups where SL types of vdos are received.
So blocking all is not a solution but vdo is surely a problem I get more then 1.5 GB in a week my phone has storage of 16 GB so you can imagine what happens to my phone.

I was thinking everyone has an iPhone. Yes, but if you want selected few to download automatically and few to not, the rule setting is kind of tough. Even Facebook introduced selective blocking only recently, so Whatsapp has a while to go.

Re: Whatsapp woes

Another irritating thing is the slideshow videos. They take 5 minutes to display text which can be read in half a minute.

Re: Whatsapp woes

The part I do not understand,.....is...

Google is now for last 20 years and in image.google com,.... for any dev-devi's picture needed,.. you can see 1000s in just one second,... why they circulate some totally unnecessary..... wasting time, money energy, data, battery and space and what not !

Same with many of the YT video clips, God's stuti clips, ( unless smthg new and self clicked ) which are all on YT for years,.. also for those " suvaachyaas / Motivations" - they are on google in lakhs, if used proper search words,.... and all have seen them for 20 years, unless some special they found needs to be pointed out,.... !

90 percent jokes n' info. are so rubbish and nthg new in it,....and even 50+ yrs of matured pl circulate such suprabhat and motivational slogans,. which are in millions on google at one click of search,...

Re: Whatsapp woes

How many believe in motivational quotes and stories attributed to Vivekananda, Abdul Jalam, Ratan Tata. Etc.

I recall like 12-13 years back, there was this audio clip circulated in emails of Vivekananda's speech in Chicago.. that must have been the first time I was fooled online.. and it continues in one form or another.

Funny, I was curious just a few days ago and looked for "Vivekananda speech" on YouTube and found it. I left it with the intention to come back as it was fairly long, ~40 mins or so. Is that a hoax?

yep it's fake, sounds genuine though with scratchy recording and Bong accent. Ramakrishna Mission (official Vivekananda organization) concluded after research that no recording was done of Vivekananda's famous speech.


Here's the link to the first time it was posted online .. credits some Subir Ghosh.
