Can't send or download videos and photos using Nokia Lumia 520 WhatsApp

Windows OS does not make sharing or sending images easy when it comes to WhatsApp. You can move them to the PC and then send them with the Windows WhatsApp PC version or move images and videos to your media files and try to share through there. Most Nokia Users in WhatsApp use a third party sharing app like Google Drive or Vimeo to then send the link to friends on WhatsApp.

In WhatsApp's Chat Settings make sure you have enabled the media download function. If you have not then this is your issue but even then problems can still occur. Check to make sure that the downloaded file is not stored for instance in your Android folder instead of downloads or images.

From your desktop, log into Windows and set up the account. You will need to verify that you have the correct age setup in your account also. WhatsApp and other apps in the Windows Store have age restrictions which is why you are being asked to setup the account. If you are a minor then your parents will need to setup the account and give permission from the account for you to download WhatsApp.

You must have WiFi to install and use WhatsApp. It does not work on just data only even if you configure the settings within the app to cellular data.

It starts to download and halfway through the download it stops and says it needs attention?

WhatsApp can't finish download, it stops halfway through the process and says it needs attention. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: I don't know

Check the date, time and year from within your phone settings. If these are correct then delete the install history and try again making sure that you have stable WiFi. You also will want to make sure you are logged into all the required accounts for instance with a Nokia you need to be logged into the Nokia Account and the Windows Account.
