5 Ways To Save Whatsapp Statuses Without Using Status Saver Apps
Whatsapp media story status as we know is one of the most interesting features of Whatsapp. The main reason some users spend more time on Whatsapp is just to view status uploaded by their contact lists and these media status includes text, images and videos.
The downside of this interesting status feature is that it only lasts for 24 hours only and will be deleted as soon as it stays up-to 24hours. Whatsapp did not add any options to download or share viewed status, thereby allowing you to only view it and it gets removed after 24hours or as soon as its being deleted by the uploader.
This issue is no longer a problem as android developers have introduced a way of saving viewed status with the use of Status Saver Apps which is available for Android users only. IOS users are yet to enjoy this freedom, as they only make use of screenshot and screen recorders.
Now, back to android, if we search on Google Play Store or any android app stores, we will definitely find hundreds of different Whatsapp status saver app of various sizes and functions.
