There’s nothing more annoying than having your phone storage clogged with unsolicited videos and pictures from whatsapp group members. If you belong to a whatsapp group.

Some annoying things members of whatsapp groups do is uploading short videos and photos. Most times these videos and pictures end up downloading itself automatically right into our phone gallery.

Not only do these videos and pictures occupy space in our smartphone.  They also end up consuming large amount of data. It can be so annoying. I remember posting a public message in one of the whatsapp groups warning the members not to upload any video or pictures. All my warnings fell on deaf ears of course. They continued with their usual practice of posting those annoying stuff.
