WhatsApp is one of the most trending chat app on our mobile phones. We all have friends ,office colleagues and relative who diligently forward us every single motivation quote and meme they’ve received from their own network. Some think it is their duty to wake us with a “good morning” message .
A simple solution to the problem would be that
- Open the Photo Gallery app on your Android phone, or use a File Manager app to locate the media folder of WhatsApp,
- Delete the entire folder containing those WhatsApps images.
But since WhatsApp makes no distinction between real photographs and useless forwards, you risk deleting the good pictures too.
The app, Magic Cleaner, scans the media folder of your WhatsApp app and automatically detects all the junk images including screenshots, memes, video screen grabs, cartoons and other pictures with overlay text. You are then offered an option to delete all the detected images in one go.
Loot Tech Tricks are ran the photo cleaner app against a WhatsApp account that had about 4000+ images and it could successfully clean it up in about 10 minutes. The accuracy was very impressive. The app is free but you can only auto-delete a limited number of images in a single run. If you would like to delete more images, you either need to invite a friend to use the app or wait for a day.
If you have WhatsApp, which you probably do, Magic Cleaner is a must-have app. An iPhone version is in the works. Also, though the WhatsApps images are deleted from the memory card, a blurred thumbnail will still exist inside your WhatsApp message logs and you’ll have to erase them manually.
