WhatsApp could DELETE leaderboard that shows who you text the most – how to check it now

WHATSAPP'S hidden texting "leaderboard" could disappear in the next update – so check yours quick.

There's an easy way to find out who you message the most, and the numbers will probably shock you.

But it could disappear forever: the test version of WhatsApp is missing the handy feature.

It's not guaranteed to vanish, but the feature doesn't exist in the WhatsApp beta – so the death knell has sounded.

The removal was spotted by the WhatsApp code-diggers at WABetaInfo, who say their fans are disappointed by the decision.

How to see WhatsApp text counters

You can find the number of texts you've sent and received in a chat, and how many times you've shared locations.

It also shows how many photos, GIFs, videos, voice messages, documents and stickers have been sent – and the amount of storage space they're taking up.

Finally, you can even see exactly how much storage space your chat with a person is clogging up overall. Maybe your pals are a bigger burden than you thought?

In any case, these figures can reveal who your true WhatsApp bestie really is.

But beware: you might find that you've sent tens of thousands of texts to someone, and realise you have a major WhatsApp addiction.

First, open the WhatsApp app and click on the Settings tab.

Next, open the Data and Storage Usage panel, then click Storage Usage at the bottom.

WhatsApp – a quick history

Here's what you need to know...

Here you'll be presented with a big list of your chats, ordered in terms of storage space taken up.

The people are the top of the list will be sucking up the most storage, and can take up significant amounts if you trade lots of pictures or videos.

To see how many texts you've sent with a person, click on any of the chats and you'll get a breakdown of stats.

Of course, WhatsApp could decide against scrapping the feature.

So don't panic just yet – unless the record of your texting habit horrifies you.
