    I try to save my received photos on Google Hangouts when the picture is enlarged,but it seems I can't save the photos to my phone. How would I save pictures sent to me on Google Hangouts?

    Welcome to Android Central! In the conversation view (i.e., not with the image full screen), long-press the image, then tap Save Media.

    I did what you said B. Diddy but now I can't find the pic in any of my files or albums. Where does it save the pic too.

    Welcome to the forums. Usually they are saved in the 'Download' folder.

    I found the same images on desktop in Hangouts and it allowed me to save to file. It would not let me do this on Android.

    Now the question is, How do I delete them in Hangouts?

    What device do you have and what gallery app are you using? Can't you find those images if you open your download manager? Do you get a notification after trying to save the picture from Hangouts?

    In Hangouts on my Pixel XL, if you long press the image within the conversation thread, you'll see a menu that includes the "Save Media" option -- tap that. If you tap the image to make it fullscreen first, tap again to get the menu button at the upper right, then tap Save.

    As mentioned by Javier P, the images will be saved to the Download directory. Open your Downloads app, and you should see it there. Or open My Files and look in the /Download directory.

    Are you asking how to delete the image as it appears in the Hangouts conversation thread? You can't get rid of it there -- it's part of the thread.
