How To Download WhatsApp Status/Stories On Your Android?

Looking for a way to easily download WhatsApp Stories and status on your Android device? We got you covered! Learn how to save WhatsApp status on Android!

WhatsApp Messenger, the freeware and cross-platform messaging 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, there is no hiding that you are unaware of it. The application allows the sending of text messages and voice calls, as well as video calls, images, and other media, documents, and user location. Since 2017, users can upload stories as one could do in Snapchat. The WhatsApp stories are end-to-end encrypted and get deleted automatically after 24 hours. It basically serves the same purpose as the stories of Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat do.

Well, there are many ways to save stories that your contacts share on WhatsApp. I have seen many resorting to screenshots for pictorial stories and screen recorders for video stories. But according to my perspective, these are not the ideal methods to save WhatsApp stories on your phone as you will lose out on quality.
