Not all of WhatsApp users know these tricks.

One of the features of WhatsApp is to allow its users to post Status videos on its platform. The feature is similar to Instagram’s feature – Stories. However, not all of its users know that they can download status updates like videos and photos of their friends on Status feed.

To do that, users just need to download & install a free application called Status downloader. Available on Play Store, the third-party app helps users to share videos and download images. It automatically scans photos on Status feed, which users see on your device, and enables them to download, as well as to repost them.

In addition, users can choose to download another app called Files app that can work with Google Files. Downloading the ES File Explorer app is another choice. Users just need to select any Status and wait for the photos being fully loaded. Next,  open the Files app, and access WhatsApp > select media > Status. Don’t forget to turn on the ‘show hidden files’ section in this app.

2. How To Find Out What Are Consuming Your Storage The Most

The app helps users to manage data storage more efficiently.

Do you know what are consuming your storage the most? Which group or contact send you videos and images the most? Here are some helpful steps that help you tackle this issue. First, open the WhatsApp app on your handset. Next, access Settings > Open Data and Storage Usage > Storage Usage. The list of contacts will be displayed and reveal groups or contacts that are eating up your storage. This list is constantly updated based on GB or MB.

3. How To Hide Group Photos & Videos From Gallery

Many WhatsApp users don't pay much attention to how to control the content that is downloaded to their smartphones via WhatsApp groups. However, this content may become a big problem in the gallery.

The feature will only display newly download photos and videos in the gallery.

To fix it, the famous platform has recently added an option that allows users to hide media files from groups in the gallery. Take easy steps as follows: Open a group in WhatsApp >>> Click on the group's name and access the option (see the image). Although this method doesn't help users remove existing images in the gallery, it can at least hide all of the upcoming videos and photos.

4. How To Check Voice Messages Less Loudly

Do you want to listen to your new voice messages but you forget to bring headphones around? WhatsApp has a solution for you! Press the play button of your voice message, and hold your device as how you do when receiving or making a call. The app will automatically play the message via the device’s earpiece, instead of speakers.

5. How to Format The WhatsApp Text

The messaging app also allows users to customize text formatting. If you don’t want to download and install third-party applications to change font style and color, you just need to use some basic commands as follows: type _example_ to create italic texts, type *example* to compose a message with the bold font, or type ~example~ to create strikethrough text.
