Sharing Facebook Reels on WhatsApp Status can be a great way to showcase interesting and engaging content to your WhatsApp contacts. Facebook Reels are short video clips, and WhatsApp Status is a feature where you can share short-lived updates with your friends and contacts. While these two social media platforms are separate entities, it’s possible to share Reels on your WhatsApp Status using a few workarounds.
In this guide, we will explore various methods that allow you to share your favorite Facebook Reels as a part of your WhatsApp Status updates. Whether you want to entertain your friends or simply share a video that resonated with you, this guide will walk you through the steps to accomplish this effectively. Keep in mind that the methods may evolve, so be sure to stay updated with the latest features and functionalities of the Facebook and WhatsApp apps.
How to Share Facebook Reels on WhatsApp Status
Here’s a step-by-step guide:
Method 1: Using Facebook Reel Link
- Open the Facebook App: Open the Facebook app on your mobile device and log in if you aren’t already.
- Find the Reel: Scroll through your News Feed or navigate to the profile that has the Reel you want to share. Click on the Reel to open it.
- Copy the Reel Link: You can’t directly share Reels to WhatsApp Status, but you can copy the link to the Reel. To do this, tap the three dots (ellipsis) on the top right corner of the Reel video and select “Copy link.”
- Open WhatsApp: Switch to your WhatsApp application.
- Create a WhatsApp Status: To share the Reel, you’ll need to create a WhatsApp Status. Tap on the “Status” tab.
- Paste the Reel Link: Create a new status by tapping the “My Status” button, and you’ll be prompted to add text, photos, or videos. Here, you can paste the copied Reel link. To paste, tap and hold in the text field and select “Paste.”
- Post Your WhatsApp Status: After you’ve added the link, you can add a caption or any additional content you want. When you’re ready, tap the “Send” or “Post” button to share the status with the Reel link.
Please note that this method essentially shares a link to the Facebook Reel on your WhatsApp Status, and your contacts can click on the link to view the Reel on Facebook.
Method 2: Using a Screen Recording and Sharing the Video Directly
- Open the Facebook App: Open the Facebook app and find the Reel you want to share.
- Start Screen Recording: On most mobile devices, you can use the built-in screen recording feature. Start the screen recording and play the Reel video.
- Stop Screen Recording: After recording the Reel video, stop the screen recording.
- Share the Video: The recorded video is saved in your device’s gallery. Open WhatsApp, go to your status, and share the recorded video as your status.
Please remember to respect copyright and privacy when sharing content from one platform to another. Additionally, new features and integrations may have been introduced in the Facebook or WhatsApp apps since my last update, so it’s a good idea to explore their current settings and features.
