    Now we need to enter the profile of a particular contact
    .
    To do that we can enter a message or we can go to "favorites". You can see we have one favorite here and a phone number. If you have your contact defined by name, then you'll see a name in here and you will also see a profile picture most of the time. Our contact does not have a profile picture.

    We want to enter their profile

    It's quite hard to enter because it's quite secret
    .
    You wouldn't really know this unless you kind of end up just pressing everything on the screen. It's not very clear that this is the way to enter their profile. We need to press that number.

    .
    We can clear all of the chat histories, we can clear chat history older than 30 days, or older than 6 months. This may be if you want to keep the more recent conversations, but you want to clear the very old stuff because you just don't need it anymore.
