    Default How to save pictures from MMS in hangouts?

    I can't figure this out for the life of me. Someone sent me pictures and I want to save them. I long hold it when it is maximized and no options come up.

    Open the picture full screen then click the menu button

    Thanks. It was so obvious I missed it.

    FWIW, this doesn't work on a Motorola Droid 4.

    This phone has "hard" keys for menu/home/back/search and pressing the menu key does nothing while viewing an attached image full-screen. Likewise, a long-press does nothing, attempting to zoom in/out on the image does nothing and swiping does nothing. C'mon Google!!

    On a MMS message with multiple images attached, I WAS able to long-press on the inline, smaller image, but it seemed that I could only forward them to another hangout.
    Luckily, the old Text/MMS app still works and contains all the same messages, so I was able to use it to save the attachments and relay them as needed.

    Hey so I've figured out how to save pictures from MMS messages! Screenshot them! In case you don't know how, which I had to Google it, you hold the power button and volume down simultaneously. It will save in its own album in your gallery! =) Hope this helps.

    P.s. this is for the nexus 5

    Can you also tell us where the pictures are stored by default? Thanks.

    Wow. Works on the Motorola Droid Razr too. I have to pay more attention to these forums. Thanks.

    Don't maximize picture in message, long hold, save.

    OMG! Thank you! I have been trying to figure out, for so long, how to save my Hangout pictures in my Gallery so that I can retrieve/ find them easily. I have a Samsung 6 Edge. The volume button and power button didnt work so I played around with it and discovered holding down the home button at the same time as the power button worked. Finally something worked!!! I am so happy I found this forum! Thank you!
