WhatsApp “download failed”: solution in Android 11

WhatsApp It is presenting a series of problems after several users updated their smartphone to Android 11. One of the problems is that the moment you try to click on a photo or video you get a warning of “Download failed”.

How do I solve it? For this, it is not necessary to have to download external programs or APKs of dubious origin, much less have to grant them permissions to access your conversations from WhatsApp. Follow all the steps.


  • Go to your internal storage folder.
  • In case you don’t have one, you can download Files from Google using this link from Google play.
  • Once you have that, click on the magnifying glass at the top.
  • After that, you must enter the name of WhatsApp.

  • When the folder appears, you will need to rename it.
  • Press for about 2 seconds to activate the possibility of renaming.
  • Now you just have to call it WhatsApp 1 or whatever you want, but it should always have the root WhatsApp.
  • When you have done, you must restart your cell phone.
  • At that moment, go to WhatsApp and download the file that you couldn’t in the beginning.
  • This will be downloaded automatically like the rest of the documents that were pending.
