Thanks. But the real question is why? Why is the media saved to the internal memory of the phone?

We're working on improving our application size and memory utilization.

Perhaps because it wasn't "worked on"

Yes. Seems like it's a known bug. Whatsapp will fix in a year or 2

Beta gets updated almost daily, it will most likely be fixed shortly.
You can always roll back a version or leave the beta program.

I believe they don't have spots available. Anyway like any other beta program you get access to new features first. I believe the "forwarded" tag that appears on forwarded messages I got about 6 months before the average user.

So you're saying anytime you see something new on WhatsApp your busy bragging to everyone about the new feature coming out? Ruach Hakodesh!  ;)

 I hear you. To me the beta was always the same.

Android life hack: If you want to share What's App status videos go into "my files", hit the 3 dots top right, "settings", "show hidden system files" turn on. Status videos are now under "my files"> "whats app"> "media"> "statuses".
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

Was pretty cool when I learned about it the first time after my brother had showed that to me.
 Though it does get deleted after 24hrs. Somehow it's in sync with the WhatsApp.
Unless you save our share the file.

so if one has whatsapp on their lets say Galaxy 8 note filtered phone and travelling to Israel for approx 11 days they can theoretically be bale to talk and text through whatsapp for free if they connect to wifi?

when not connected to wifi what can they buy or use(sim card? cheapest option?))

Is that realistic to try and connect to public open wifi while travelling in Israel or not so prevalent?
if some type of service is needed what should we get for the 11 days we are there since we have the phone and whatsapp?
