I'm trying to automatically change the text status (not the photo/video status) in WhatsApp via Tasker by sending an Intent. My problem is that I don't know if it's possible to call the status to change it, and if it is possible, how to do that.

Any help is appreciated!

There is no intent to change text status directly but you can use a workaround by using Autoinput which is a tasker plugin.

Here is the profile description. You can download XML for easy import here.

First, you need to set a variable for text for your WhatsApp status.

A1: Variable Set [ Name:%content To:intent test Recurse Variables:Off Do Maths:Off Append:Off ] 

Next, Launc WhatsApp

A2: Launch App [ App:WhatsApp Data: Exclude From Recent Apps:Off Always Start New Copy:Off ] 

Click the menu of whatsapp

A3: AutoInput Action [ Configuration:Type: Text
Value: More options
Action : Click Timeout (Seconds):20 ] 

Wait for 1 second

A4: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:1 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ] 

Click status in Menu

A5: AutoInput Action [ Configuration:Type: Text
Value: status
Action : Click Timeout (Seconds):20 ] 

Again, wait for a second

A6: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:1 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ] 

Click edit to edit status

A7: AutoInput Action [ Configuration:Type: Text
Value: edit
Action : Click Timeout (Seconds):20 ] 

Wait for a second

A8: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:1 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ] 

Paste the whatsapp status from variable named content.

A9: AutoInput Action [ Configuration:Type: Focus
Text to Write : %content
Action : Write Timeout (Seconds):20 ] 

wait for 1 second

A10: Wait [ MS:0 Seconds:1 Minutes:0 Hours:0 Days:0 ] 

Finally, click ok to update the status.

 A11: AutoInput Action [ Configuration:Type: Text
Value: OK
Action : Click Timeout (Seconds):20 ]
