  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

      • Nope, doesn’t work. You have to select each file individually, which is incredibly time-consuming if you have a lot of images in a WhatsApp group.

        • Same here:

          Also problem with bulk image download is there is no timestamp of in which order the pictures were taken.

          Means you download bulk images but still have to manually rename them later..

          Was hoping for better app that allows you to prep files / add comments before exporting pictures

  3. There are hundreds of images in my group, which I want to download, If I select them one by one, lots of time I spend on it. Can I download them in any easy way?

  4. As of October 17, 2020 there is no “Select Messages” option in the menu. If I select images to download, the three dots disappear and I can not even display the menu.

    • Hi,

      I can still see the “Select Messages” option in the menu on “WhatsApp Web.” It’s still there.

      Please note that this is a guide for downloading multiple files at once on WhatsApp Web, not on a smartphone.


  5. This was extremely helpful, I had wasted so many minutes downloading images / videos one by one… always thought that there should be a simpler way … but never really tried to find out… luckily today I did 😀
    Saved me at least 30 mins of worth 😀
    Thank you so much for sharing this blog post.

  6. Moto G7 does not show the Arrow to download selected files at once. I got 2.4 GB and no way to download it from the Whatsapp. Whoever you instructions how to select & mark up are very correct.
