Enable Disable auto download feature in Whatsapp. Whatsapp (now owned by Facebook) is one of the most popular messengers in the world. It has many fascinating features; auto download feature is one of them. By default, this feature is enabled. So images, audio files, and video files are downloaded automatically, when your device is connected to Internet. But in some cases, like if a person is having a slow and limited internet access plan then he may get annoyed because of auto-download of some of these unnecessary or not so important large files. So, for that purpose Whatsapp has provided you the settings from where you can customize auto-download option with ease.
Obviously, you may want to limit your downloads while using a limited internet plan, but what if sometimes you get an unlimited Wi-Fi. In that case you want to download all the stuff. So for that purpose Whatsapp has endowed you with the feature of individual settings like:
- When using mobile data.
- When connected to Wi-Fi.
- when roaming.
