Whatsapp status download is not possible from the App directly. Because there is no option is provided to do this. But, It's possible through a Simple Method.


The idea behind this technic is,
the files are already downloaded on your phone before you watch it. You have to find it from the Internal folder through the File Manager.

You can't see the Internal folder directly in the WhatsApp installed phone storage or memory card.
