How to Download and Save WhatsApp Status Videos and Images on Android Phone and iPhone
As you know, it is impossible to simply save a photo or video from the WhatsApp status on Android, and there is no way to view it in the gallery. But still, all the statuses that you viewed are in the memory of your phone or tablet, and we will show you how to download statuses to your phone. Nothing complicated, thanks to the detailed instructions with attached screenshots, you can easily download the video from the status in WhatsApp.
What are WhatsApp statuses?
In the main interface of WhatsApps for Android, you get three main headers. For each section of the application: chats, status and calls.
Statuses are similar to Stories on Snapchat, Instagram, or Facebook. The user uploads an image, video or text.
WhatsApp stores them for 24 hours or until the user decides to delete it.
Why do you want to download and save photos and videos WhatsApp statuses?
Has one of your contacts ever uploaded a video or a particularly funny picture that you want to share? WhatsApp doesn’t allow you to do this particularly easily.
You have to ask a friend to send you the media and download it yourself. Or download an app that saves statuses for you.
This is a waste of time as WhatsApp already downloads media to your phone (and hides it) when you browse it.
How to download WhatsApp status video on Android Phone
- Open your file manager and navigate to your device’s main storage.
2. Go to the WhatsApp folder.
3. If your file manager shows hidden folders, you should see at least two here (.Shared and .trash). Select and go to Media. After this step, you should be here: / storage / emulated / 0 / WhatsApp / Media. Or just / WhatsApp / Media.
4. Finally, select and navigate to the .Status folder. From here, you should find all the statuses that WhatsApp has stored on your phone
(/storage/emulated/0/WhatsApp/Media/.Statuses). I suggest you copy them to a different folder. Or change their names so that WhatsApp doesn’t delete them after twenty-four hours.
