From the Windows Phone WhatsApp app, you can only send messages, pictures from the pictures hub, audio notes and videos you have taken from the WhatsApp app. There is no option to send a song (and I'm not sure if you can receive one unless its recorded using the audio note option in the app).

Having said that, to access any file (picture, audio or video) sent or received, go into the chat thread > tap the ellipsis ... > tap info > swipe the screen horizontally. All the files sent by a contact will be stored there.

For picture files, if you long press the file in whatsapp, you'll get an option to save. If used, the picture file will be saved to your pictures hub > albums > 'saved pictures' album. Audio and video files do not have an option to explicitly save them.

I have sent the audio to myself on WhatsApp. After doing so I was able to view it in the gallery. –  user5220 Mar 9 '14 at 9:52
