    Because it creates a lot of storage space issues, do you know how to resolve that? I don't want to lose most of what I have, but I don't know how to transfer the material, say, to my computer for future or any use.

      Yes it does take up space but this is generally the case with a lot of widely used apps, Whatsapp and Spotify can do the same as well.

      The best advice would be to clear chats you don't use often, use WeChat for Mac or Windows and save documents to your computer directly from there, then delete from your phone conversations.

      Doing this once a month should keep storage in check for you Dusan.

    In many ways I am somewhat of a simpleton regarding computer actions. Can you describe step by step how I may do this?

      Which steps are you struggling with Dusan?

        I have a PC and laptop either of which I want to transfer the pics, articles and some talk over to in order to preserve them (and hopefully access them), then to delete them from WeChat on the iPad devices, thus making massive amounts of storage space free again. I don't know if I can do all that safely onto a non-iPad unit. Also, if I can do all that, how can I access them to view, if not to transfer elsewhere into some more permanent file. I have heard previously any transferring simply loses the material.

        Then I am unsure of the proper steps to take if I am able. I imagine something like creating a file first on the unit, then somehow transferring the various files. But WeChat seems to be very specific about access, like one at a time log-ins, so, not seeing actual steps to take, I become more unsure about losing stuff. Some superb stuff in this case.

        And thanks for bothering with me so far.

          Oo that's a little tricky. I think the best thing to do is use WeChat for Desktop and save all your files on your computer from there.

          Chats I don't think you'll be able to export and have in a readable format in truth. Files you can definitely save. Just make sure when you open WeChat on your computer to check the "Sync Messages" so all your messages appear as it would on phone/iPad

            Probably my biggest concern is for the pictures and videos, most of which were from trips and are only on WeChat, and maybe the moments of others which include similar things. Would those be salvageable in their otherwise pristine form?

              Difficult to say. Media expires on Wechat after a certain amount of days so you'd best do that sooner rather than later. Save to your computer if it still lets you save the media.
