    Hello. After the installation of new update in my device, One Plus 6T. I'm unable to view, recieve or send any media through my phone. Neither I can view the images, stickers or WHATSAPP stories, nor I can send any. Everytime it shows download failed. I'm hereby attaching a screenshot for the same. Please help me to solve this issue as soon as possible.

    The below solution from other user helped me to fix this issue.

    Had the same problem and found a solution: Open your file manager -> Storage ->, rename the root Whatsapp folder to any other name (example Whatsapp1) and restart your phone. Good luck 😉

    Hello there. Am a total technophobic. Can you tell me how I rename my root file?!

    This does not work for me unfortunately. Maybe I am doing something wrong. I renamed the whatsapp folder in my internal storage, but I still can't send and receive Whatsapp media

    I faced the Whatsapp Media issue after the OS 11 update installed on 29-Oct-2021 which was rolled out in Sep 2021 and today 3-Dec-2021 02 30 AM in India received a notification for 11.1.2.2 update and post installation the whatsapp issue has been resolved.

    Hope this helps!!!

    P.S. Not sure if the battery drain issue has been fixed as part of 11.1.2.2 update and needs some more monitoring.
