How to Save WhatsApp Status on Android

Steps to Save WhatsApp Status

Follow the simple steps below to learn how to save all kinds of WhatsApp Status like pictures, videos or GIFs to your Gallery on your Android device. Before you proceed, make sure you’ve viewed the Status which you want to save. If you’ve viewed it already, then follow the steps below.
  1. First, you’ll need an advanced file manager like ES File Explorer, and enable “Show hidden files” option.

    To do this on ES File Explorer, open the menu and scroll down until you see Show hidden files option, and then enable it by sliding the toggle.
  2. Now, navigate to WhatsApp > Media folder.
  3. Here, you should see a folder named .Statuses.
  4. Open that folder and you’ll see all the viewed WhatsApp Status updates like pictures, videos and GIFs. To save it for future viewing, simply copy that file and paste it in a location of your choice.
These files are automatically deleted after 24 hours. So, make sure to save them to a different folder.
Of course, there are many third-party apps available on the Play Store that allows you to save WhatsApp Status with just a few taps, but most of them are filled with advertisement and lack in functionality, so we think using a standard file manager method is the best option. We hope this post has helped you. If you’ve any doubts about this post, you can write to us through the comments below.
