When you switch devices, WhatsApp allows you to keep your old messages by transferring your chat history between phones. Since you must first backup all of your chats to Google Drive before transferring them, the process can occasionally be tedious. Currently, WhatsApp is developing a feature that would enable direct chat transfer without using a Google Drive backup.
You can basically transfer your chats to another Android device using this feature without first backing them up on Google Drive, which saves both time and data. According to WABetaInfo, this feature has been in the works and is now available to WhatsApp beta users on Android.
WhatsApp Android chat transfer tool: Details
- You can find out by opening conversations, heading to the settings menu, and looking for the chat transfer option.
- The chat transfer process can then start by pressing the start button.
- You will then receive a QR code that you must scan in order to move your chats to a new Android smartphone.
If you want to preserve all of your WhatsApp chats, the new option offers a quicker and more convenient method than the Google Drive backup. We frequently encounter situations where we have more than 1GB of WhatsApp conversations that require first being backed up to Google Drive before being restored on a new device. You won’t need to deal with this inconvenience thanks to the new feature.
Having said that, it should be noted that failing to backup to Google Drive poses a risk because you risk losing your chat history. Regarding the feature’s accessibility, beta testers have only recently begun receiving it.
There is currently no official confirmation from WhatsApp, but it is anticipated that all users will soon have access to it. To test out upcoming features, you can sign up for WhatsApp’s beta programme if you’re interested.
