    I don't know if it's just me or more people are facing this issue. My one plus 8pro takes good 40-45 seconds to start showing images in gallery app. I never faced this issue in my One plus5T. It was much smoother and faster.

    Please help if there is a solution to this.

    That is too long , 45sec!
    Try this
    Open Gallary app than tap 3 dot menu on the top right than toggle on the option that says " Filter Images Smaller Than 50 KB "

    It's the same for me, mate!
    of course, I've tried with a third party gallery app ("simple gallery" on play store, the one I've used the most in the past) and...boom! all the pictures are there in a second.... maybe two.
    So, in my opinion, I think OnePlus gallery app should be improved a lot.

    tried everything like that. is the app itself: if you open the gallery 4 times, it scans and reloads twice all the media files.

    it is certainly a solution but it means giving up having many multimedia elements at first sight: a lot of WhatsApp images that I receive, for example, are less than 50kb large.

    I don't know dude, could help. In the mean time until it's fixed try Files by Google or Google Photos, or even Simple Gallery Pro on F-Droid (can I say that here?)

    I use simple gallery from the 1.0 version...and I bought the pro version 😁 too (it costs few cents...)
    The point is that many user like me, won't install other apps (it would be the 3rd for the same function - google photo, oneplus gallery app + a third party one) and use the system ones.
    Anyway, thanks for the advice mate 👍🏻😉

    Which version of gallery are you using currently.

    Any countermeasures for any form of redundancy is a good thing to take into consideration, especially when using a computer type device ( redundant backups, a separate app or whatever to fall back on in case your primary doesn't work.) Stuff like this is exactly why I bought a Yubi key.

    Is the issue persist in this version of gallery or it was introduced after Android 11 update.

    Have you ever tried resetting the phone or clearing the cache , or try to see if issue persist in the safe mode too?
