    Previously all WhatsApp images were showing in Others folder while the images are stored under WhatsApp folder though when i check through PC or Files app. After the latest WhatsApp update the images are getting stored but it is not showing in the Pictures gallery, but i can see them in all photos but not in Albums.

    I tried many things like uninstall..reinstalling .. Removing the WhatsApp folder from PC I.e cutting the folder n pasting in PC .. Several Restarts. .. Finally i fixed it lately .. But I can't say which is exact fix ..last thing I remember doing after I rolled back all the above changes was I renamed the WhatsApp folder name from Files app n when new media came automatically it created a new folder with WhatsApp name n started showing in albums too n so after that I moved all my media from the renamed folder .. Everything is fine now.

    Hi All,

    I was facing the same issue but I fixed the bug on my phone. You just have to change the name of your current Whatsapp folder in your memory card like change it to "What Sapp" and switch off your phone, restart the phone now u will find that folder in your picture galary but now it is not your whatsapp folder ask any of ur frnd to send any image on whatsapp now whatsapp will create a new folder in memory card and this folder will be shown in your picture galary. Now you can transfer your images from "What Sapp" to new folder. This is how I fixed my bug, I hope it will help you guys :)

    I have a peculiar scenario with the Whatsapp Profile Pictures folder. Previously the Profile Pictures of contacts which I view used to get stored inside Whatsapp Profile Pictures folder. One day I UPDATE my Whatsapp. From then the folder went missing but I am able to view the pictures even if the mobile is offline. Don't know where it is now saving the images. I have also checked if the folder was hidden. Even if I recreate the folder it is not storing the images in that folder. I have also reinstalled the application. Does whatsapp store the images in any other format or location other than storing in the default folder.

    Also check that in your WhatsApp settings the option to save pictures to gallery is set.
