Save WhatsApp Status in Gallery

WhatsApp introduced the "Status" feature back then on February 24, 2017, which was a clone of Snapchat's "story" feature. it lets users share images, videos, and gifs which then automatically disappears after 24 hours. however, WhatsApp did not provide an official way to save these shared stories in the gallery or on the phone permanently.

To overcome this, users tried to take screenshots and screen recording, etc but the quality of the images/videos wasn't the same in the taken screenshots or screen recorded video. so what's the best way to save WhatsApp status images and videos in Gallery? let's find out in this article.

Save WhatsApp status images and videos in Gallery

There are two ways to save WhatsApp status images and videos in the Gallery. one way is using any file manager such as MI file explorer or any other file manager installed on your phone. And another method is using and dedicated app. both the methods are explained in detail below:
