    By reading this article you will learn how to post videos longer than 30 seconds as WhatsApp status. It is possible to circumvent this limitation and post long videos about WhatsApp status.


    How to post long videos on WhatsApp status

    One way to get around the 30 second limit in WhatsApp status videos is to split your long video into series of 30 seconds of video. This can be achieved by using apps that can split long videos into multiple 30-second parts or by using the built-in feature in WhatsApp that automatically splits the video in 30 seconds.



    So let's take a look at the two methods that can be used to split long videos in 30 seconds.

    1. Split long WhatsApp status videos using apps

    An easy way to post long videos about WhatsApp status consists of installing an app called "Audio Status Maker". This App takes your video and automatically splits it into multiple 30 second parts.


    For example, if the video you want to upload as a WhatsApp status video is 3 minutes long, the app will split the video into 6 equal parts of 30 seconds each.

    1. Download the “Audio Status Maker” app from the Google Play Store

    2.  Once the app is downloaded, open the app and tap on the File Manager icon located in the lower right corner of the screen.


    3. On the File Management screen, tap the video you want to post as a WhatsApp status.

    4.  Tap Done in the lower right corner of the screen.



    5.  Next, tap on the WhatsApp status option. The app now crops the video for you.


    6. Once the video is trimmed, you will be redirected to WhatsApp. Just tap My Status, to post the long videos about WhatsApp status.

    2. Split WhatsApp status videos without using any app

    If you don't like the idea of ​​installing apps on your device, you can still post long videos about WhatsApp status publishing them as a series of 30-second videos.


    1. Open WhatsApp and tap the Status tab.

    2. Then, tap on My Status and select the video you want to post as your WhatsApp status.

    3. Once the video is selected, you will see a slider at the top of the screen. The slider allows you to choose 30 second parts of the video you want to post as a status on WhatsApp.

    Using the slider, you can post the first 30 seconds (0 to 30 seconds) of the video as a status and then follow steps 1 and 2 again, to post the next 30 second video and so on (30 to 60 seconds ).
