Not Showing up Whatsapp Images folder in oneplus Gallery via OnePlus 8T Aquamarine Green

    My 8T since a long time is not showing up Whatsapp Images and Videos Folder in oneplus gallery.

    However, I can see Whatsapp Images folder in File manager

    I tried following troubleshooting steps:
    1. The Media Visibility is by default ON

    2. Tried Re Installing Whatsapp

    3. Reset App Preferences

    4. Checked Permission of Gallery and WhatsApp for files and media is allowed.

    5. Turned ON hidden collection from gallery settings.

    6. Tried deleting .nomedia folder from file manager

    I'm tired of all such steps... Any one who can help me? 😞

    Try updating the Gallery to version 4.0.180 from the Play Store.
    If it isn't available for you, use this apk.

    Then it should be showing. I was facing the same issue till Gallery version 4.0.179. The new version fixed it

    The whatsapp folder moved to from internal storage to android folder. You can see under com.whatsapp

    As per the rules the files under android folder won't be visible in gallery and public apps

    I'm facing the same issue and even I tried all these steps and then regretted my decision to update.
    So I DOWNLOADED A GALLERY APP FROM PLAYSTORE which is showing whatsapp images in that particular app.
    But WTF IS WRONG WITH ONEPLUS, this issue is happening only after that update

    I use Google photos now. I've found the gallery app to be not reliable over time, and I don't think OnePlus spend much time updating and testing it before new software releases. Sorry if this is not so helpful, but I sympathise with the time you feel you have wasted trying to use the app effectively.

    You can always provide OnePlus feedback directly through this link.

    I'm having this same issue, is there any fix that doesn't involve Downloading a new gallery app?

    Hey guys.

    It would be better if you expressed your sentiments directly to OnePlus through the link provided above. This is a user forum and your views here will less likely probably never be heard.

    Now i have solution without install third party app file manager. Please follow this step-
    -- Go to internal storage - Android folder - Go to media - whatsapp.
    - Now select the whatsapp folder name and cut and paste to internal storage.
    finally you will be able to see the folder of whatsapp media.
