App Version is 8.3.2. Also tried all - from reinstalling to even clearing the whole cache partition of the phone. Kindly fix the feature - since it is bothersome to manually save fotos and videos. Especially since managing inside telegram is tedious. Photo management is easier via gallery app
This! This right here is the deal. Telegram is not adjusted for the new access right scheme. It is pnly allowing media-folders. No dev here, so not sure which folders this exaclty means. I don't get it. WhatsApp and other messagers got this working no sweat. What is the hold-up.
You're right, they just moved "Telegram" folder from root of sdcard to another folder that they have permission to write there but it's not visible to user. I think auto-save option only removes ".nomedia" file from "Telegram" folder so media will be visible in gallery when Telegram is in /sdcard/Telegram, but with scoped storage it's moved to /sdcard/Android/org.telegram.messanger so it won't be visible even without ".nomedia". instead they should save media in /sdcard/Pictures/Telegram when auto-save option is on.
