Viewing Images, GIFs and Videos in a Story

Wattpad stories are more than just words; they can also contain images, GIFs and videos to help the story come alive.

To view media in a story, you must have a strong enough internet connection. You will see a grey box if the media has not been downloaded.

There are two types of media:

  • Header Media: Images, GIFs and videos at the top of a story
  • Inline Media: Images, GIFs and videos in the text of a story 

Select a type of media to learn more about it:
