Why My WhatsApp Images Are Not Showing in Gallery?

It is quite common for WhatsApp users to experience the issue of not being able to view the images they receive on their phones in the gallery. This issue has plagued many users and can be quite frustrating.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to fix this problem.

Check Media Visibility Settings
The first thing you should do is check the media visibility settings in your phone’s settings. Depending on your device, these settings may be located in a different place.

Generally, you can find them under “Security” or “Privacy” settings. If it is not enabled, you won’t be able to view any images from WhatsApp in your gallery.

Check Storage Space
Your device may also be running out of storage space if it cannot save images from WhatsApp to the gallery. Check your device’s internal storage space and see if there is enough free space available for saving new images. If it is full, delete some unnecessary data or transfer it to an external storage device like a microSD card.

Clear Cache Data
Sometimes, cached data on your device can also cause this issue. Clearing the cached data of WhatsApp may help resolve this issue as well. To do this, go to “Settings > Apps > WhatsApp > Storage > Clear cache” and then try viewing the images again in your gallery.


In conclusion, if you are having trouble viewing images from WhatsApp in your phone’s gallery, make sure that media visibility is enabled in your phone’s settings and that there is enough free storage space available for new data. Additionally, clearing cached data for WhatsApp may also help solve this problem.
