When I record and send an outgoing video through Whatsapp it automatically saves a copy (duplicate) to my Camera Roll. This is a pain because I do not want them saved.

Is there a way to turn off automatic saving of outgoing video to Camera Roll?

Note: This is different than Whatsapp automatically saving incoming media to Camera Roll, which can easily be turned off in the settings.

This is not a supported feature as of March 20, 2021 per Whatsapp customer service. See screenshot.
