KidsGuard is one of them that you can use to save Whatsapp videos and Whatsapp photos, calls, and more. Here's how to download WhatsApp videos from Android, iOS, and PC.

How to download videos from Andriod

The process of saving Whatsapp videos from Android is much easier. You'll notice no option to download or save the video when you click on a video. WhatsApp automatically saves incoming media to your device and makes it accessible much the same way as if you'd taken it yourself.

  • Firstly, enable auto-downloading.
  • You can access Settings by clicking the three-dotted menu button at the top right of the WhatsApp main screen, where your conversations are displayed.
  • Choose Storage and Data.
  • Tap on the below option and ensure that Videos is selected from one of these options: 1. When using mobile data; 2. When connected to Wi-Fi; 3. When roaming
  • Make sure Videos are checked when you tap the first option when using mobile data, for example, to save videos automatically. Click OK to save, and then exit the settings to return to your chats.
  • Next, check your phone's gallery for newly downloaded videos. Choose Chats from the settings menu as you did in step 1 above. Select Media visibility from the drop-down menu. As a result, the WhatsApp video folder appears in the Photos app.

Great if you've had it on all along. Find the WhatsApp folder in your Photos app. The folder will show all videos sent to you that have yet to be deleted. But if you also want access to deleted videos, KidsGuard can help. Here is how KidsGuard works for WhatsApp.

How to download Whatsapp videos from iOS

If needed, you can save WhatsApp photos and videos to the iPhone's Camera Roll. Two options are available to you. Whether you want to save pictures or videos automatically or manually, WhatsApp lets you do it both ways. Regardless of your choice, WhatsApp must first be permitted access to the iPhone Photos app.

On your iPhone, go to Settings > Privacy > Photos > WhatsApp, then select Allow Photos Access under Read and Write. Here are two options to consider.

AutoSave WhatsApp Videos to iPhone

WhatsApp automatically saves all photos and videos you receive to your iPhone's Camera Roll when you enable this feature. Some WhatsApp users may turn off this feature if they receive a lot of photos and videos from their WhatsApp contacts. Regardless, it's a decent way to save WhatsApp photos and videos on the iPhone when you have lots of them. Here are the steps you need to follow.

  • On your iPhone, click WhatsApp > Settings > Chats.
  • Activate the toggle for Save to Camera Roll.

You will now be able to save photos and videos you receive through WhatsApp to your iPhone's storage.

Download WhatsApp Videos from iPhone Manually

You cannot selectively download WhatsApp videos from your iPhone. Your iPhone's Camera Roll can hold lots of unwanted photos and videos saved from WhatsApp. You can manually save WhatsApp photos and videos to the Camera Roll instead of deleting them. Below are the steps:

  • Tap the Chats tab on your iPhone to open WhatsApp.
  • Select the conversation containing photos and videos that you want to save.
  • On the next screen, click the Share icon and select the image or video you want to share.
  • From the pop-up menu, select Save. A photo or video will be saved to the Camera Roll.

How to Download WhatsApp Videos on a PC

The process of saving videos through a PC is much easier. Here are the steps involved:

  • Choose the conversation where you want to download the video from WhatsApp Web or the desktop app.
  • Click on the 'Video' to open it.
  • Save it by clicking the download button at the top right.
