Disabling Automatic Video Download in Telegram

You have probably noticed that files, including GIFs and videos, are automatically downloaded in Telegram after they are received. Automatic downloading causes a lot of your internet data to be used up for downloading videos that you may not even be interested in watching, and it also takes up a lot of space on your phone with downloaded files that you do not need or like. This forces you to constantly delete these files from your phone, or otherwise, you will not be able to use your phone optimally.
If you do not want to be trapped in such a situation, we recommend that you disable the automatic download of videos in Telegram. In this article, we are going to teach you how to do this.
