How to automatically save photos and videos?

First of all, keep in mind that this feature is only available for Android devices. By default, the photos shared on Facebook Messenger are only accessible within the app itself. This procedure will allow you to access any media shared on the app whenever you wish.

Go to Apps and open Facebook Messenger. Tap on the Settings followed by Data & Storage.

Tick the Save Photos - Save incoming photos to your Gallery checkbox.
