How can I set a photo or video as my WhatsApp status?

There are a couple of different ways to create a WhatsApp status you can do. Let’s look at them.
How to create a WhatsApp Status using the Status option:

1. Open WhatsApp.
2. Tap on Status.
3. Tap on My Status. If you’ve already got a status, tap the little circle with a + sign on the top right.
4. Take a photo by pressing the shutter button, or hold the button for a video. Or select one from the camera roll at the bottom of the screen.
5. Add a caption if you want by tapping on Add a caption, and then tap on the Send icon at the bottom right.
6. You can tap on it to view, or press the menu button on the right side to check how many people have seen the update, or to forward it. Tap on the eye icon to see the names of the people.
7. The WhatsApp status will disappear in 24 hours.

Here is another method to create a WhatsApp Status:

1. Open WhatsApp.
2. Tap the camera icon on the top left.
3. Take a photo or video, or select one from the camera roll.
4. Add a caption if you want. Tap the green tick to finalise.
5. Next you can either send it to a contact, or select My status to update your status. Tap the Send icon at the bottom right.
6. You can now go to the Status tab to see your status, as above.

How do I delete my WhatsApp Status?

You can easily delete these updates if you have made a mistake. This is how you can delete your WhatsApp Status:

1. Open WhatsApp obviously.
2. Go to the Status tab. Scroll to find the status you want to delete.
3. Tap on the eye icon that shows how many people have seen the status.
4. This will show a list of the people who viewed your status.
5. Tap the trash icon, and tap Delete to confirm.
There doesn’t seem to be a way to delete multiple WhatsApp Status updates in one go though, so don’t mess up too much!

How do I edit privacy settings of WhatsApp Status?

You can set it so that only specific WhatsApp contacts can see your status, or you can make a list of contacts who can’t see these, or set it to show to all your contacts.This is how you can change the privacy settings of your WhatsApp Status:

1. Once again, naturally, open WhatsApp.
2. Go to Status and tap on the Three dots menu icon on the top right, and tap on Status privacy.
3. Alternatively, you can tap on the menu button in the main chats screen and open Settings > Account > Privacy > Status.
4. There are three options here, My contacts, which is all your contacts; My contacts except.., which lets you pick contacts to exclude; and Only share with.., which lets you pick contacts to share with.
