Hi,

I am using Galaxy A50 and if I want to save any pic I received in WhatsApp to my gallery, it does not have an option.

If we select save media to gallery in whatsapp, it saves all media. But I want to save only the one I want to.

Can anyone help?

First you have to download and install Cx file explorer. Then go to the whatsapp picture you want to save and click on 3 dots on the top right corner. Then press share and choose Cx file explorer. Save the picture wherever you want to in your phone memory.

thanks for the tip. But that doesn't seem to work if you want to download multiple images at once.

This is really a terrible problem and so I hope that it gets resolved soon

But in this solution , we are depending on third party Cx file explorer. Samsung should inplement it by defualt....Its basic functionality...

I agree this should be a default solution but as of now we depend on "Cx File Explorer".

What I did was I downloaded a file manager app. I select share option on whatsapp photo, it will direct me to apps available for sharing -the file manager icon will be there as a "copy to function" file . Click on it n  paste it to whatever sub folder your want and it will be paste there for your use later. It's a longer way of doing things but it works for me.

Hi,

Yeah with third party explorer like file manager or cx file explorer we can but our concern is it should have by default in OS as this si basic functionality

Yet another basic feature not there. Having to do a long winded manual process to save individual photos from WhatsApp. Trust me Samsung Devs don't care. They don't listen
