For the status function to work properly in WhatsApp, the following must be fulfilled:
- Both WhatsApp users must have saved each other as a contact.
- Neither of the two may have blocked the other (have you been blocked?).
- Make sure that you have allowed WhatsApp to access your contacts during setup.
Solution 1: Check status settings
- Opens the settings in WhatsApp.
- Tap on " Account "> " Privacy ".
- Briefly sets "Everyone" to "Last online", "Profile picture" and "Info".
- Tap on "Status" underneath and check that all contacts can see your status.
- Restart your smartphone and check whether everything works now.
Solution 2: Check contacts in the contacts app
According to one user, for example, on Samsung smartphones it can happen that Skype is set as the standard video call app. Apparently this can lead to problems with WhatsApp status.
- Then open the Contacts app on the Galaxy smartphone and check whether you can also see the WhatsApp logo on WhatsApp contacts.
- If there is another logo there, such as Skype, disable or uninstall Skype and reinstall WhatsApp.
Solution 3: completely reinstall WhatsApp
- First creates a WhatsApp backup, if not already done.
- Uninstalls WhatsApp.
- Open your file manager app. If you don't have one, we recommend the Solid Explorer app.
Deletes the folder
- Reinstall WhatsApp.
- Restore the backup when asked.
