WhatsApp update’s new feature basically queues your messages in case you don’t have an internet connection nearby and it gets send once you reach that by activating an internet connection. You can simply tap ‘Send’ on messages when you don’t have a connection active. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection.

Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone’s storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings > Data and Storage Usage > Storage Usage). Finally, the update lets users manage their phone’s memory space in a better way as it allows you clear certain unwanted messages, images, media from specific chats to free up the space.

This feature is available in beta version of WhatsApp’s iPhone app and is said to be disabled by default, meaning, you will no longer have to turn it on manually.
