    There is an app for that. Even comes with a widget that lets you show/hide the imgs.
    \”Hide whatsapp images\” in playstore.

    I uncheck all options, mobile data and wify, but I am still getting videos

  13. raj says:

    Menu > Settings > Chat settings > Media auto-download. Then un-check the media you don’t prefer to get auto-downloaded.

    I followed above steps, but still saved all videos in gallery

    Un-checking boxes from Whatsapp menu will stop auto downloading, however once you download it manually, it will show in gallery.
    TO STOP SHOWING IN GALLERY – you need to download ES FILE EXPLORER and then create ..\”nomedia\” file in whatapp Video, Audio and Images.
