The update was that you can add photos and videos in your status…… some liked the new update but for some it was disgusting yeah I am one of the one who doesn’t liked that update…
So I was looking for the solution to remove the status feature from the whatsapp and I figured out a way. Yes i did that 🙂
So let me tell you that how i removed the status feature from my whatsapp account. Here is the trick 🙂
HOW TO REMOVE WHATSAPP NEW “STATUS” FEATURE FROM YOUR ACCOUNT
I have got two ways to disable the new status feature on whatsapp. One is for rooted users and the second method is for non rooted users. And of course it is free of cost J so lets head to the methods to disable the whatsapp status feature.
Are you fed up of the calling feature??? see how to disable whatsapp calling feature…
Method- no 1: Disable using the (Root Explorer)
NOTE: make sure that you have the backup of your important chats.
- First of all, Force Stop your WhatsApp Application from app settings.
- Now Go and Open the Root Explorer App.
- Now go to the location Data/data/com.whatsapp/shared_prefs/com.whatsapp.preferences.xml in the root explorer.
- Find the Key Name ” Status_mode”
- you will find the value 1 you have to change it 0 to disable the status feature.. .
This is how the key looks before any amendments.
<int name=”Status_mode” value=”1″/>
This is what change you have to do:
<int name=”Status_mode” value=”0″/>
Now click on Save button to complete the step. Now you can see that the New Whatsapp Status feature has disappeared and get back to earlier version of WhatsApp.
To use this method you have to make sure that the phone is rooted otherwise the root explorer app will not run.
Ah not rooted 🙁 don’t worry i have also a method for the non rooted devices :p
METHOD 2- (NON ROOTED DEVICES) DISABLE STATUS FEATURE USING “WA TWEAKS”
Yes this method works fine with both the rooted and non rooted devices. You can easily disable the status feature using this easy to use free app….. but this app has certain requirements it runs only on the android version 4+…. the good thing is that it is free to download and can be found on any 3rd party site…
