How To Fix WhatsApp Status Not Showing Problem?

Fortunately, there are several solutions to this problem. You can do it all by yourself because those solutions are very easy to set up.

01. Friends Might Not Have Saved Your Phone Number

As you know, WhatsApp required saved contact to communicate with others. We can start to chat with one saved contact but you cannot see their profile picture or status. For example, you just saved someone’s phone number on your phone, but they didn’t.

So you can start a chat conversation with them, but you cannot see their Display picture or any status they posted until they will save your contact on their phone. If both persons already saved the contacts on their phones, statuses and profile picture should be shown. So make sure to check both persons (you and friend) saved contact on their phones.

02. WhatsApp App Is Outdated

If your WhatsApp Application didn’t update while ago, the app is outdated which means there are lots of bugs. Whatsapp development team try to fix bugs and launch updates every time on their app because reducing bugs will attract new users.

However, if your app outdated, you must update the Whatsapp app quickly. Then the bug will be fixed and start to showing anyone’s Whatsapp status on your phone. Just go to the play store> search for Whatsapp> click on the update button to get latest update on WhatsApp.

If your network connection doesn’t work, it must be the problem. Some network connections won’t be working even if it connected. The cause may be low signal strength, router problem, etc. So if there is a network connection on your phone, the WhatsApp status will not visible due to the bad network connections which are statuses will not be loading. So please make sure to check the network connection issues before change settings on your WhatsApp app.
