Quite often, our friends and family members post amazing content, stories, or videos on their WhatsApp status, and we just fell in love with it. But we have no idea how to download their status on our phones. If they have shared pictures, we can take their screenshots. But if they have shared videos on their status that we like, we do not know what to do. Sometimes, we ask them to share it with us by sending us an inbox.

WhatsApp is the most commonly used social media app that is an instant messaging app. Due to its high-quality voice calls, video calls, voice messages, text messages, pictures, videos, audio and location-sharing features, it is used all over the world by millions of people.

A few years ago, WhatsApp launched this amazing new feature of WhatsApp status, where you can share your contact information with your friends. Your status will disappear automatically after 24 hours. On the internet, you can find several websites that provide you with the best content and ideas to share on your status.

People search for quotes, videos and photos on Google to share them on their WhatsApp stories. There are thousands of searches on Google every day for the best WhatsApp status, the best status, and status quotes.

Some people take screenshots of people’s statuses when they like it, but if that’s a video, you have to do screen recording if that function is available on your phone. But there is no need to take screenshots or do screen recordings. I am going to share with you a very simple method that you can apply with any smartphone to download the status of your friends.

When you watch the WhatsApp status of someone, that status automatically gets stored in the internal storage of your mobile phone. So, in other words, we are trying to download something that is already saved on our smartphones. I am going to share its details with you in this article.
