By default, the downloaded WhatsApp images and videos are shown in the gallery.
However, if you prefer, you can hide them from the gallery.
And, the best thing is that you don’t need any third-party app to do this task. Let’s see how to do it.
For individual Contact or Group
Long press the chat and you can see Overflow menu (three vertical dots) beside “Archive.” Tap it.
Now, under “Custom notifications,” you can see “Media visibility.” Hit it.
In the popup, tap “No” and then hit “OK.”
That’s it. From now on, the newly downloaded images and videos from this chat will not be shown in the gallery. Keep in mind that the existing ones from this chat are still displayed in the gallery.
For All WhatsApp Contacts and Groups
Hit Overflow menu (three vertical dots) > Settings > Chats.
Hit “Media visibility.”
That’s all. From now on, the newly downloaded images and videos of the WhatsApp will not be shown in the gallery. Remember that the existing ones are still displayed in the gallery.
