Android System Restrictions

According to the Admin Dog,

“Due to the new Android system restrictions, downloaded files are now stored in storage/Android/data/org.telegram.messenger/cache.Its visibility will depend on file manager app’s permission access (for some apps its content is shown as empty so it is not visible).”
