Cleaning up your hard disks or even the apps is always a good idea as they free up space and helps the system to respond faster. Whatsapp is no different. The app is so famous and easy to use that people often find it simple to share images, audio and video through this, which in turn consumes space on your phone memory or the SD card memory to be able to store that media.
