In the Android app, tapping Settings, Data and Storage Usage and Storage Usage will take you to a list of your conversations, ranked by how much space they’re taking up on your phone.

You can touch any of these conversations to see a detailed breakdown of all of the different types of messages – texts, images, GIFs, videos, audio, documents, locations, contacts – in the conversation.

You can get rid of all of the video messages in a conversation, for instance, but keep everything else.

On the other hand, you can also delete all of the messages in a conversation apart from videos.

As well as displaying exactly how many of these message types have been exchanged, the screen also shows you how much space each type of message is using up.

Tapping on the Manage Messages button at the bottom of the screen lets you choose a particular section – or several of them – and delete the messages.

Conversations, particularly group chats, often get clogged up with silly multimedia attachments you'll never look at again, which can eat into your handset’s storage.
