However, you can resolve these minor issues by paying attention to the usage of WhatsApp. Since WhatsApp allows you to send and receive different contents like images, videos, GIFs, audios, documents, and other files, it might overfill your memory. Hence, you should ensure these contents are not saved automatically on your phone; otherwise, you might run out of phone storage. You should also delete irrelevant content regularly to avoid clogging your phone memory.

You should also make sure you are using the latest version of the app. So, open your Google Play Store and check for updates. Then, tap on the update button to update to the latest version.

Sometimes WhatsApp might not function due to bad network connectivity. In such cases, you should check your data connection or Wi-Fi signal. If your internet service is down, you should wait till the issue gets resolved. Those of you using a Wi-Fi connection should check if the router is connected to the internet.
