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.
I use SD card as media storage for telegram and since October 2021 I cannot save to gallery automatically, despite the option is on. Also, I used to have access to the folder where the media was saved so I didn't care. In the past days I was looking for a picture and found out that I lost access to this folder as well. Now all media is storage in SD card telegram folder cache with sizes arround 10-50 kb... This used to work so well and was a great advantage over whatsapp...
Still not working. Incredibly tedious. Was happening on my Pixel 4 android 10, then updated to 11, still not working
Still same Problem here. I'm on Android 11 Redmi Note 9s Telegram Version 8.5.1 When this will get fixed or at least given a proper workaround?
Is this really that hard of a workaround? You could literally just change the folder telegram saves to or allow the user to set that folder. It's been months now, c'mon Telegram. Other than this, you're my favorite messaging app
Android 12 and Telegram v8.5.2. Almost 3 months and we still have this issue... Is it that hard? Whatsapp got it to work as soon they moved all their data/media to the Android folder. We still have to manually save every photo even though we selected the "auto save media to gallery". If you won't add it again, at least remove the option :/
Mi9 Android 11 still not working. I suggest a partial solution: the feature of selecting multiple pictures from single chat is already working well. If we could just "save to gallery" all selected pictures we would have an huge improvement and a very effective solution to this issue.
Please fix this annoying bug why telegram doesn't care for their users it's been months they just should change the media location like whatsapp for god sake and it's not working in android 12.
Pixel 4XL, Android 12 - not working no matter the settings, only manual save to gallery
