How to View All Photos You Sent/Received Through the Message App [iOS 7]

If you’ve been having quite a visual conversation with your friend through the Messages, you’re most likely to send a lot of photos. Chances are, you might want to review all the photos that you have sent in a conversation.

Like WhatsApp, Messages app in iOS 7 – for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touchs – offers you a way to view all the photos in an album-like way.

How to View All Photos You Sent/Received Through the Message App in iOS 7

Step #1. Open the Messages app.

Step #2. Tap on any conversation where you have exchanged a lot of photos.

Step #3. Now, tap on a photo. This will open the photo in a new screen.

Step #4. Right down the bottom-right of the screen, you’ll find a “list” icon. Tap that.

Step #5. You’ll now see a list of all the photos exchanged in this particular conversation.

The list works just like a photo album list. You can tap on an image to view it. There’s the share button to share the image with anyone over Messages or Mail or socially. You can also add the image to your Photo Stream if you’ve connected your iCloud account.

Incidentally, it’s not just photos but all other media that has been shared. Any multimedia item shared in the conversation – a photo, a video, an audio file – is listed here.

Just like WhatsApp, the list shows only the media files associated with the conversation you selected.

For those of you who have seen the large “Other” data when they connect their iPhones and iPads to iTunes, these media files form a large part of that. In fact, if you see an alarmingly large “Other” part, you might want to delete entire conversations (or delete the media content within the conversations by swipe). That will clear some (or a little) of the Other data.

When you delete the images from your iPhone or iPad, it won’t – quite obviously – affect the conversation at the other end. The recipient (the other person) will have the media intact.

That’s all for now!
