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

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.

SL types of vdos Ye kaun sa type ka videos hai If you mean saneless type of videos then you are very wrong. I rarely watch videos on whatsapp... not even from friends and family

This is stock market terminology from Swami. Stoploss videos, of scrips crashing or spiking up Like happened today with the auto stocks after the supreme court ruling about the BS-III.

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.

If it is auto download, I end up spending too much time deleting media. It is easier for me to save few useful pics or videos which are less than 5%.

My iPhone has only 16 Gigs memory, so I removed whatsapp downloading, I save any pics or videos myself if I wanna save for future.

Re: Whatsapp woes

Don’t preserve any more junk of Pics and video ( from the, WA coming messages ) , as rather ask me,…. I can show you each area, where you can find such things in bulk, nicely stored in bulk, on which FB page.

For example, if you go www.facebook.com and in searchbox there, I will give you words,. And you may find only and whole bunch of thingies such as,.. for example,..

  • Darshan of all devi-devtas ( actual taken photos at any particular Indian temples of all locations )
  • All charlie Chaplin funny short comedy clips of only videos at one place..
  • All other comedy clips of short video clips of Gujarati dramas.
  • All spectacular short clips of political videos,.. or Political messages circulating,..
  • All political poetries in accordance to recent happenings ( like I posted that Ambani’s Jio )

Re: Whatsapp woes

I wish messages came with decent formatting for ease of reading. I wonder how many actually read before forwarding.
