This feature lets users see which chats spend the most space and allows to delete images, videos, audio, and more in every chat.
To manage your storage, go to the "Me" tab and select "General". Then, select "Data and Storage Usage". Users will see the list of chats as well as the total storage allocation that has been used.

BBM users on Android devices now have a new feature of automatic site preview on BBM. Users will see thumbnails and titles in chat each time a user or contact sends a link to a site.
When a user sends a link or a news link, the preview will automatically appear above the area text. While, when a user receives a link, the preview lets them see what friends are sharing, so that the user can check the headline before opening the link.
To see this new feature simply open a chat, type or paste the sitelink into the text field and a preview of the site will appear. If a user sends a link, a friend will receive the same information.
