Send photos, videos, files, or links to a group discussion or a chat

If your administrator has enabled the camera and device photo gallery permissions, you can access the device camera, photo gallery, or both to take and send photos from the device photo gallery to the persistent chat discussion that you are a member of or to a chat. You must join group discussions or begin a conversation before you can send photos, videos, files, or links to the discussion group or chat.
