While WhatsApp allows you to stop auto downloading of media, very few people know that you can also find out what's eating your storage. To find out, you need to open WhatsApp on your smartphone. Go to Settings > Open Data and storage usage > Storage usage. You will see a list of contacts including groups who are consuming your storage. From here, you can choose to leave the groups that are sending unwanted media.

Listen voice messages without making noise
Almost everyone has been in a situation where they played a voice message in public only to be left embarrassed because of its content. Well, there is a way through which you can listen to WhatsApp audio messages discreetly even without headphones. All you need to do is tap on the play button and hold the phone as you’d do while making a call. The platform automatically stops using speakers to play the message and instead plays it through earpiece of the phone.
WhatsApp allows its users to customise the text format. To send a message in bold, type *example*. For italics, try _example_. For strikethrough text, type ~example~. Apart from this, you can also download several third-party apps from Google Play Store that change font colour and style.
