If you also want to know how to save WhatsApp status images and videos on your mobile phone, following steps will help you:…..

Some time back, WhatsApp started a new “Status” feature which can be used to set any desired status in form of text, photos or videos.

I will tell you how to save whatsapp status (images and videos) of another people in your mobile phone without using any 3rd party app.

If you want to know how to save WhatsApp status images and videos in your mobile phone, Let’s follow steps:-

1. First open Files Manager in your mobile phone.

2. After opening File Manager, we need to enable hidden files display feature. By default, File Manager doesn’t display hidden files and folders and WhatsApp status are stored in a hidden folder so we’ll need to enable hidden files/folders display.

Tap on 3-dots icon showing on the top-right corner of File Manager and select “Settings” option. In some mobile phones, you’ll find this option with a different name. Or in some mobile phones, you may directly get option to “Show hidden files” in 3-dots menu.

Once you open Settings page, you’ll get a toggle option to turn “Show hidden files” on/off. Tap and the option and set it to ON.

3.  Now go back to File Manager main page and tap on “Internal Storage” section.

4. Now tap on “WhatsApp” folder.

5. Under WhatsApp folder, tap on “Media” folder.

6. Now you’ll see the hidden “.Statuses” folder. Tap on it.

7. Now you can select desired image and video and copy/move the files to any other desired folder in your mobile phone.

That’s it. Using this method, you can save your contacts status images and videos permanently on your mobile phone.

Note: If you delete or move an image/video file from “.Statuses” folder in File Manager, it’ll stop showing in WhatsApp Status page and you’ll get “Sorry, this media file doesn’t exist on your internal storage” error message.
