Is there a way to check how much storage iMessage apps consume?

    A few sticker packs aside which take up really small space, there are iMessage apps which are more than 50 MB in size and their size keeps on increasing once developers add more stickers. Is there any way to check how much storage they're taking up?

    Is Settings > General > Storage and iCloud usage (if I'm thinking of the correct path) not accurate? Or does it just show the initial size of the app perhaps?

    In Storage and iCloud usage, iMessage apps aren't shown. For example, I've Sticker Pals which is 104 MB in size isn't shown anywhere in that storage section. Wonder which category iOS puts calculates that much amount of storage (Other data?).

    Settings > storage & iCloud usage > manage storage (first one at the top)..

    Perhaps it gets counted as part of the size taken up by Messages?

    Its counted as Documents & Data in iTunes, not 'Other'.
