You want to get free up memory by turning off the automatic download at the App messaging
WhatsApp is a fundamental tool in our day-to-day. Key to communicate and to keep up to date with news, pictures and viral videos. We are all involved in some group through which we are bombarded with all kinds of viral content that is stored in the memory of the smartphone and leaves us without space.
These contents are stored by default in the memory of the cell. The images, when we are connected to mobile data, and photos, videos, audios and documents with Wi-Fi network. But there is a way around this. You have to make some changes in the configuration of WhatsApp. Pay attention to how do I turn off the autosave and save memory and data on the terminal.
To disable the automatic download you must enter WhatsApp menu (the three dots that appear at the top right). We go into Settings/data storage and in the ‘Download’ we deactivate the types of files that do not interest us in mobile data ‘connected to’ and ‘Connected to Wifi’.
WhatsApp will thus leave of download and save on your cell automatically all the media files you send us and not malgastaremos data. When we want to save contents in the memory of the cell that we are interested, we will have to give to each photo, video, audio, or document.
If you click on ‘Connected to mobile data’ we can disable the downloading of all media.
Mobile phones designed with operating system iOS can also be turned off the automatic download of files.
The procedure is as follows: Open the Settings menu of WhatsApp (the nut located on the bottom right) and then click on more in ‘Data and storage’. Here are the automatic download options. We open on an individual item and we see three choices: ‘Never’, ‘Wifi’, and ‘Wi-Fi and mobile data’. The automatic download is disabled by clicking on ‘Never’.
