WhatsApp statuses are a great way of sharing content with all your contacts for a short window of 24 hrs. However, there are many instances when people tend to like some WhatsApp status videos and want to save them on their device storage. Here is how to download WhatsApp status videos on your device:
Before using the process mentioned above for WhatsApp status video download, you must have watched the status video/photo that you want to download/save to your device. The process mentioned above is a workaround that helps you download your favourite video statuses from WhatsApp by making cached copies of them in other locations of the smartphone. The process mentioned above works on Android devices only.
As of now, WhatsApp status download is not an official feature, and thus the content disappears after 24hrs. The process mentioned above is a workaround that can let Android users make copies of the statuses from the temporary destination. There is no official method that allows WhatsApp status video download. However, the Google Play Store features some apps that can help users download the WhatsApp status videos and photos and save them locally on their device.
As of now, there is no official procedure that helps the iOS users download and save local copies of WhatsApp statuses. iOS users can download WhatsApp++ (a modded version of the official app) from a third-party app store which comes with the WhatsApp status video download option. However, using the modded app could lead to your account being banned temporarily or permanently from WhatsApp.
