There is no official way by WhatsApp by which you can move images and videos to your external SD card. However, there is an easy to follow way to move images and videos stored by WhatsApp on your internal storage to your device’s SD card.

Exit from the Internal Storage root folder and now navigate to the external SD card root folder from the File Manager application.
Under the root SD card folder, create a new folder with name as “WhatsApp”.
Inside this newly created folder, paste the “Media” folder that you cut earlier.
