WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature that lets you stop media in chat threads automatically downloading to your phones’ media gallery.
Although it’s still only a test version of WhatsApp messenger for Android the new feature adds an option to hide all received media from specific chat threads in the gallery of the device. Right now, you can only block or allow media from every conversation, so the option to pick an choose is a welcome one – especially if you have a few active and rowdy group threads like we have, with friends posting new memes and videos every hour or so. It goes a long way to saving storage space on your phone.
But, as a few folks have already pointed out – don’t think you can get away with cheating, WhatsApp hasn’t implemented a lock code on opening the app just yet !
