Allow automatically downloading files/media from a specific channel, so that all new files/media posted to the channel are automatically downloaded to the user's device. I'm aware there is already a setting for 'Automatic media download' that may do the job, but it seems to apply to all chats/groups/channels, without the ability to make exceptions and enable it only for specific chats/groups/channels. Also, allow the user to specify that only new files/media are to be automatically downloaded, not all files/media that have already been posted to the channel (and that can be already be downloaded by exporting channel history)

Granular precision to the “Save to Device” feature.
In Android there’s only a checkbox to mark that we want media to go to user’s storage, while in iOS there’s a handy feature called “Save Incoming Photos” that sends photos to user’s gallery and gives you the option to choose which “kind of chat” will be saving (as you can see in the photo attached here).
It would be amazing to have te precision of choosing, not only what kind of chat will save media to storage, but also which chats we want this feature on. Much like in privacy options in Telegram, but now directed to this functionality.
I want the media that I exchange with my friends and family to be sent to my gallery as a no brainer (it would be less cumbersome than having to select them to save, and I could see my Google Photos' gallery filled, for example), but I don’t want my gallery polluted by channels and other groups' media.
