  1. I cannot see any videos, photos or audio files on whatspp web. All videos have an X in the middle with a loading circle around them, but nothing will load and the initial video image is blurred. Help!! I have tried to download them, but they don’t show up on my laptop anywhere. I am using a macbook and safari. Thanks!

    • Hi Lucy,

      There are two possible reasons that you see this:

      1. Your internet speed
      2. Your Phone’s connection to your laptop

      Make sure your Phone is connected to the internet and make sure you have got a decent internet speed. WhatsApp web loads media files straight from your Phone, so if your Phone is not connected, it will show this loading sign with a cross in the center.

  2. How can i “select all” images? i only have an option to manually select all the image I want but I have a few hundred images I want todownload
