    Has oneplus already released a feature to save images from WhatsApp? I'm really trying to make OnePlus work for me but they are making it so hard!

    @iTuch do you want to save photos from WhatsApp statuses?
    Don't think you can do that without a seperate app or manually copy it yourself to wherever you want.

    Hi, there is an option in WhatsApp Settings from where you need to enable the option to show media in Gallery.

    If you are able to see the media files in your WhatsApp that means it is being downloaded in your Phone storage but it is not shown until show media in Gallery option is enabled.

    P.S. this might not be the case for all but device & whatsapp version specific.

    Normal photos, videos and files are saved by default. Is this something else you are talking about?

    The images gets saved into the device by default.

    I guess you might not have turned off the media visibility feature.

    That option is going to show in my gallery ALL images sent to me even the ones i dont want to save, if someone sends me porn pictures they will show up in my images and i dont want that, then if someone sends me an important image i need to save there is no option to do it, i try by clicking the three dots at the top right corner when looking at the picture the i press the option See in gallry and there i press the option either Copy to or Move to then i select my images folder an$ copy/move it but nothing happens, i still aint got the image.

    I don't know if you can do this from WhatsApp but
    You can try in File manager
    WhatsApp
    Media
    WhatsApp images
    Select and copy from there

    Well interestingly this functionality is available in Signal & Telegram and in fact Signal has exactly same options you are looking for and more suited options for media files control but no such options in WhatsApp for sure.

    I tried this but all the steps you did in the video were only to see the image in gallery but it actually doesnt saves it, i know its not your problem but **** OnePlus i thought they were good quality phones, they also havent fixed the issue with the video camera zoom and yesterday my camera app wont open dont know why.

    Are you sure that you used the "copy to" option from mixplorer? What happens when you click on the paste button?
