If you use instant messaging services like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger etc, you may have been sharing a lot of photos and files with your friends and family.
While messaging services like these do make life easy, it also makes your smartphones a mess because of the duplicated files that are created when you start sending the same photo or a file to many individuals and groups.
The more groups and individuals you sent to the photos and files to the more duplicated versions of the file and photos are generated on your smartphone, resulting in a lot of trash data that fills up your smartphone and slows it down.
And while it is quite easier to get rid of all the trash data in a single click by deleting all of them, you may want to take a step back and delete only the duplicated files, so that you do not lose the original one and have at least a single copy of the files that you delete.
This is where the latest features of WhatsApp come in handy.
