Download WhatsApp Status without third-party apps

Most used Phone application WhatsApp with over 1.6 Billion users, where on average the social media giant users spend 2 billion minutes per day. Did you know that WhatsApp actually downloads the statuses that you view? This is not something that many are aware of. You actually do not need any third-party apps to save someone else’s status.

You only need to go browse through your favorite smartphone file manager until you find the files that you need.

Step 1: Open the file manager of your Android smartphone.

Step 2: Then access the Internal Storage of your phone and then find Settings and click on it.

Step 3: Under this menu, enable the option called ‘Show Hidden Files.’

Step 4: Now access the internal storage and search for the WhatsApp folder.

Step 5: Under the folder named WhatsApp, find the folder named ‘Media.’

Step 6: Inside this folder, you will be able to find a file named ‘.Statuses.’

Step 7: All the statuses you have viewed can be found here.

Step 8: Copy the image or media that you require to another location and you’re good to go. Keep in mind that only the statuses that haven’t disappeared yet can be found here. So, if you do find a status that you wish to keep, the smart thing to do would be to get your hands on it before it disappears.
