1. Taking Screenshots or Using Screen recoding Apps:
Well, this is most common and easiest method of all the tricks. Well, basically every smartphone has a feature that allows you to take screenshots of your device’s screen. So suppose that there is quite a nice picture on your feed and you want to get it, then all you need to do take a screenshot of it. And later if you crop and take out the unnecessary parts of it then it will look quite original.
But screenshot won’t work if you want to get a Video and for that, you would need a screen recording app. Now, you can get it easily from Google Play Store and you can record your screen to get the video. After that, you can use a video editor and cut out the unnecessary parts. Quite simple and easy, Right?
Now, let’s move on to the next one.
2. Checking the Hidden WhatsApp Folder:
A lot of you might have noticed that once you watch WhatsApp Statuses/Story, the next time you visit it again you don’t need to wait for it to get loaded or downloaded on your device again. So that means it gets downloaded somewhere on the device and after it’s time limit is over it gets deleted automatically. So where does it get downloaded? Well, there is a WhatsApp Statuses folder that goes by the name .Stauses in the root folder of your WhatsApp App. And the best part is that you don’t have to root your Android device. So check the steps down below to get the status using this method.
Generally the .Statuses folder stays hidden and to get hold of statuses you need to unhide the folder. Follow the following steps to unhide this folder:
- Visit My Files, then after that move on to Device Storage.
- After that, you need to click on WhatsApp, followed by Media.
- And inside the media folder, you will be able to view the .Statuses folder.
- After that, you need to tap on More and then tap Show Hidden Folder.
