Bug: Unable to save images from articles
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I am unable to save images from articles on my Android device. When I tap on an image, then tap the menu dots and select "Download", I get a toast message that says, "Permission to write to storage on your device is required for saving images." This occurs in both the normal version (2.7.50422-r-2022-10-24) and the beta version (2.7.50422-beta-2022-10-24). I have a Pixel 4a running the latest update of Android 13 (build number TP1A.221105.002). I was never asked for this permission and I cannot find anywhere in the app or the device settings to grant it.
