Downloading WhatsApp Statuses Using File Manager (Built-in Method)

The beauty of this method lies in its simplicity. It leverages your Realme phone’s built-in File Manager app to access hidden folders where WhatsApp stores viewed Statuses. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown:

1. Open WhatsApp and Watch the Status: The first step is to fire up WhatsApp and navigate to the Statuses tab. Find the video you want to download and watch it completely. This is crucial, as WhatsApp needs to process the video for it to be saved in the designated folder.

2. Launch File Manager App: With the desired Status watched, head over to your Realme phone’s File Manager app. This app might be named simply “File Manager” or come under a different moniker like “realme File Manager” depending on your specific model.

3. Enable Show Hidden Files: By default, File Manager applications hide system folders to prevent accidental modifications. To access the folder containing WhatsApp Statuses, we need to enable the “Show hidden files” option. Locate the Settings menu within your File Manager app (usually denoted by three dots or a gear icon) and activate the “Show hidden files” toggle.

4. Navigate to WhatsApp Media Folder: Now comes the directory navigation. Within File Manager, delve into your phone’s internal storage. Here, you should see a folder named “WhatsApp.” Open this folder to proceed.

5. Access Media and Statuses Folders: Inside the WhatsApp folder, you’ll find another subfolder named “Media.” Open this folder, and within it, you’ll see a folder labeled “.Statuses” (the dot at the beginning makes it hidden by default). This is the holy grail! The “.Statuses” folder houses all the WhatsApp Statuses you’ve viewed.

6. Find and Copy the Status Video: This folder will contain files corresponding to the Statuses you’ve watched. These files might not have recognizable names, but they’ll be video files based on their extensions (usually .mp4). Browse through the files and identify the video matching the Status you want to save. Once you’ve found it, long-press the video file to initiate a selection menu. Choose the “Copy” option.

7. Paste the Video to Desired Location: Now that the video is copied, navigate to your preferred location where you want to save the Status video. This could be your phone’s gallery folder, a newly created folder, or any other location that suits your needs. Once you’re in the desired destination folder, long-press on an empty area and select “Paste” from the menu. The copied Status video will be saved in your chosen location.

8. Disable Show Hidden Files (Optional): If showing hidden files clutters your File Manager view, you can now disable this option within the app’s Settings menu.

By following these steps, you’ve successfully downloaded the WhatsApp Status video using your Realme phone’s built-in File Manager app. This method is convenient and doesn’t require installing any additional apps. However, it does involve navigating through hidden folders. If you prefer a more straightforward approach, the next method might be more suitable.
