How to Copy Status on WhatsApp Update Without Application

Here's how to copy-paste status updates of our friends (contact) on WhatsApp without using any additional apps. In this tutorial, we can also save the status like photos or videos permanently on our phones.

Actually, there is a common shortcut way that we already know to save the status in WhatsApp, that is by doing SS or screenshots, but there are still many shortcomings such as can not save the video or writings.

Therefore in this article, we will not discuss the screenshots way because that's too obvious and almost all of us know it, besides, we have a better way.

The status update feature is actually nothing new, because if you ever use BBM (Blackberry Messenger) and LINE apps this status update feature has existed long before WhatsApp has it.

Whether because of patents or other things, in fact, the addition of the status update feature in WhatsApp is somewhat late because other similar applications have applied it long before WhatsApp.
