I received hundreds of photos in What'sapp chats from work..I don't need the pics on my phone but I do need to see them. It's a problem when it takes 15 minutes to find a pic of your girl because there is thousands of pics of number counters. Help?

Search using Files. Also, I do recall there being a way in the WhatsApp to not save media for certain contacts. Images would still appear you just wont have a copy of the pics. I hated when I got on a group on WhatsApp it wat horrible and I think that is how I resolved it.

If I don't download them I don't see them. I haven't found a way to not save them. I just deleted the gallery of WhatsApp pics. I've had this phone less the a week. 1500+ pictures.

There is a setting in Whatsapp which will prevent that. 

  1. Open Whatsapp
  2. Click on the 3 dot menu in upper right
  3. Click on Settings
  4. Click on Chats
  5. Under "Chat settings", disable the option "Media visibility".
