How To Put Youtube Video On Whatsapp Status In iphone

If you want to put YouTube Video in iPhone as your WhatsApp status you have definitely come across the right article. In this article we will show you how to put youtube video on whatsapp status in iphone.

Although WhatsApp is not a social network, yet it lets users’ stories just as we have in Facebook or Instagram. These stories or status updates can be photos, videos, GIFs, texts, and links which can be put up for twenty-four hours after which it gets deleted.

Now there are some users who want to put up their favourite YouTube videos as Status updates. This can be easily done in mainly two ways:

  • Posting the YouTube link.
  • Placing the video directly in the status.

I will discuss each of them in detail for the users:

1. Posting the YouTube link.

  • Go to the YouTube App on your Smartphone.
  • Select the video and then click the share option.
  • Tap on the WhatsApp option in the Share section.
  • You will be directed to the WhatsApp My Status option on the top of the screen.
