Whatsapp status

Whatsapp status is one of the most popular and most used features of Whatsapp and with over a billion daily active users, Whatsapp users probably post more statuses on a daily basis than any other social media apps out there.

However, due to privacy concerns and other reasons Whatsapp does not include a default option to save the video or image statuses of your contacts. So, if you like someone’s status you can take a screenshot, but it is not the best solution and it only works for image statuses and not the video ones.

All you have to do is to open the video status that you want to save and then scroll down from the top or the bottom of your iPhone screen to access your control center and then select the screen record icon.
