10. Media Visibility (Android Only):-

This is an amazing feature and I personally loved this. However, the only bad thing about this feature is that it is only for Android users but that’s okay we can manage with that. At least something for the Android Users, Right.

This WhatsApp New Feature now allows Android Users to control the media content that they want to see in their Phone’s Gallery. Either you accept it or not, It is true that We use WhatsApp for all kind of messages. Every day, we download dozens of photos and Photos we receive.

But, there is some photos or videos we download which we don’t want to show up in our gallery. But previously we only got two options either Delete it or don’t download it.

But After this Update, we have one more option. WhatsApp now allows Android users to download that media files In WhatsApp but prevent it from showing in our gallery.

To access this feature user will first have to tap on any individual Chat or Group Chat. Then Press the vertical 3 dots button and select view contact. After this there you will find media visibility option right under the custom notification option.

Click On the media visibility option. Then it will ask you that you want to show newly download media from this chat in your phone’s gallery?. You can select it according to your preference.
