Open some image or video from that chat. You will see "All media" option on top right corner. Click that option, it will list all media files(photos, videos and audio files) from that chat. Select items you want to delete and delete... ☺

1. Open WA
2. Open a conversation/chat.
3. Go to contact details, by tapping the contact name, on top of the chat.
4. Go to all media.
5. Tap "select". (Top Right Corner of the screen)
6. Tap "bin". (Bottom right corner of the screen)
7. Delete.

@bogdan_wrc: You can't delete.
I am confused whether it's a bug or feature...

Delete a photo using the methods as suggested by Vikram & Sumit. Now go go Gallery -> camera. You will found that the  deleted photo is still there.

As voice messages are unseen in storage you may think that they got deleted from above mentioned ideas, but actually they won't.

@Jahidul, Actually Whatsapp for Tizen maintains two copies for photos and videos. ie. If you set option "Save media to camera roll" (which is on by default), it will store under Camera folder. And another copy in some encrypted form.

So, if you delete from either of them still one copy will be there.

If you set option "Save media to camera roll" off, only WhatsApp will show those media files and once deleted, they are deleted forever ☺

Yeah.! Only Photos and Videos are saved two copies. Audio messages are saved in Whatsapp only. So, once you delete audio messages from Whatsapp,by the methods mentioned earlier, they are deleted forever.

thank you for your answers!
but...the delete media options works fine for images (probably) it does not find any voice messages....and so i cannot delete them...

in android, at least, i could find the WA folder in internal storage and there was a folder VOICE MESSAGES, which contained all messages..and could be delete simple...

Yeah, no voice messages are shown under all media. But there was a question mark (?) icon for voice message in earlier version of WA which is currently unavailable.

To delete a voice message:

1) Press and hold for a second on a voice message
2) Press Delete on the menu that popped up
3) Select all the voice messages you want to delete
4) Press the trash can

Hmm...
Assume you have 100+ contacts in chats tab and you want to delete all voice messages. Imagine how it could irritating to scroll all contacts/chats to do so. Hence, WA should have a one click solution...
