For photos go to whastapp→Media→Whatsapp images→sent same for video Media→Whatsapp video→sent These are only those which send by yourself.
Compress photo and videos
This is one of my favorite tricks Maybe you don’t know but this app compress photos and videos for better speed here I also add a proof of this to use this feature you have to dual-use dual WhatsApp using parallel space.
- Send photo videos from one number to another
- Download it from the second account
- Your task complete, see the size of the photo as given in screenshot I send 223 kb image which will become to 85 kb after sending
