Save WhatsApp Status Photos and Videos – Step by Step Guide

Back in February 2018, WhatsApp had introduced a new feature called WhatsApp Status that allows users to share Text, Photo, Video and GIF updates that disappear after 24 hours of posting. Even though you can take the screenshot of the photos shared by your contacts, there is no direct way to save the videos or GIFs shared in the status.

All the media posted in the Status are stored locally and can be accessed using a simple file manager app. There are many free and paid File Managers are available on the Play Store but we pick Files by Google because of its minimalistic design and multiple useful features.
