WhatsApp Messenger, the free, cross-platform and Voice over IP (VoIP) service, is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world right now. With a user base of over one and a half billion users, it is the number one app.



The app allows the sending of text messages and voice calls, as well as video calls, images and other media, documents and the user's location. Since 2017, users have been able to upload stories like on Snapchat. WhatsApp stories are end-to-end encrypted and are automatically deleted after 24 hours. It basically serves the same purpose as Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat Stories.

Well, there are many ways to save the stories shared by your contacts on WhatsApp. But in my opinion, these are not the ideal methods to save WhatsApp stories on your phone as it will lose the quality. Here are some pretty nifty methods to save WhatsApp stories on your Android phone and iPhone without losing quality.


How to save WhatsApp statuses and save WhatsApp videos and status images on Android and iPhone.

An easy way to save WhatsApp status images is to take a screenshot of the status. However, this method does not work for saving WhatsApp status videos.



So, the best way to save WhatsApp status videos and images is to access the hidden ".status" folder on your device, where WhatsApp saves status uploads for 24 hours.

On an Android phone, the hidden ".statuses" folder can be easily accessed using a file manager app or using the ES Explorer File app. For an iPhone, WhatsApp status videos can be recorded using the screen recording feature available on iOS devices.

Unlike Android devices, iOS devices do not have the File Explorer app. However, iPhone users can still save WhatsApp status videos and images using the built-in screen recording feature.

The screen recording feature is not automatically added to Control Center by default. Therefore, you must first add the Screen Recording feature to the Control Center, before you can use it.

1. Tap Settings> Control Center> Customize Controls.

2. On the Customize Controls screen, tap the green button next to the "Screen Recording" option and it will be added to Control Center.

So, the easiest way to save WhatsApp status videos and images on an Android phone is to access the ".status" folder on the device using "File Manager" and copy the WhatsApp status videos and images.

On Samsung phones, the "File Manager" is labeled "My Files". On Xiaomi, Motorola and most Android phones, it is labeled as "File Manager".



The easiest way to access File Manager is to search for "File Manager" with the help of Google Assistant.

On Samsung phones, you can access File Manager by tapping All apps> Tools> My Files. On Android phones, you can access File Manager from the app menu.

If you cannot find the File Manager on your device, you can skip this method and use the second one.
