Git diff is a multi-use command that can be executed to show the differences between two arbitrary commits, changes between the working tree & a commit, changes between working tree & an index, changes between two files, changes between index & a tree, etc.

The git status command is used to inspect a repository. It shows the state of the working directory and staging area. It will list down the files that have been staged, which haven’t been staged and the files that are untracked.
