Previously, one cannot view a previous whatsApp status, you’ll have to view all, then start all over again.
Let’s take for instance, you are about viewing someone’s whatsApp status and he/she has about 5 images on his/her Status you’ve already viewed 4 and about viewing the 5th image and you really want to review the 4th image again you have to view the 5th one to finish it off before you start all over again to review the pictures or images on the status.
But it’s no longer the same now, with the new updates and features on WhatsApp you can view the previous images or videos on the status without having to start all over again.
All you have to do is click behind the image or video to view previous image/video which you just passed.
When you click behind the 5th image or video on the status it’s gonna take you back to the 4th image or video, this will enable you review the previous image or video on the whatsApp status.
The image below will give more illustration
