Don’t select WhatsApp because that’ll only share it with someone on WhatsApp.

You can’t put it as your Status like that.

Download it to your phone first.

  • Go to Y2Mate

Now go to a platform that lets you convert YouTube videos to downloadable formats.

We used Y2Mate for this guide.

Paste the link of the video you copied in the previous step and tap on Start.
