Moving on the update which bumps the app to version 2.17.1.WhatsApp has also included the ability to Clear Chat and free up some additional space.

At 95.6MB (for the iPhone 5s) in size, the update itself is small but adds a few useful features to the app which, not to mention, were the painful shortcomings of the ubiquitous messaging app. You can delete specific media like texts, images, GIFs, videos and voice message from specific chats to free up space.This can be accessed by going to Settings Data and Storage Usage Storage Usage. Like seriously, WhatsApp! Did it take so long for you to add this feature? It is not turned on by default and requires manual intervention.
