Telegram is one of most popular messaging apps globally slowly taking roots in African countries however whatsapp has that nortion of ‘good’.

As you’d expect, Telegram is packed with little tricks that make the app even more enjoyable to use.

One such feature is the ability to stop images you receive being automatically saved into your phone’s picture gallery. Let’s take a closer look.

If you don’t want Telegram to save pictures to your phone’s gallery, just follow the simple step-by-step instructions below.

  1. Open the Telegram app.
  2. Tap on the three horizontal lines in the upper left-hand corner of the window.
  3. In the new menu, select Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the Messages section.
  5. Slide the toggle next to Save to galleryinto the Off position.

Unlike WhatsApp (which blurs images when you disable automatic download), you will still be able to see Telegram images on the screen in all their glory.

If you’d like to save a picture to your gallery, open the image and click on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner. In the pop-up menu, choose Save to gallery.

Will you still be stuck to the past using whatsapp or now you will shift to telegram? Let’s see!
