WhatsApp Chat History transfer feature

WhatsApp is simplifying the process of transferring chat history from one phone to another through a new feature. The fresh beta (2.24.13.6) update of WhatsApp introduces a new way for a seamless transfer of conversations from an old phone to a new one, without the need for Google Drive backups.

With Beta 2.23.9.19, WhatsApp brought a QR code-based system that allows users to move their chat history directly between Android devices. The beta new update suggests the possibility of extending this feature to allow cross-platform chat history transfers, potentially including iOS devices.

Presently, WhatsApp supports chat history transfers between iOS and Android, but it’s limited to newer Android versions and requires a physical cable. The new update aims to eliminate these restrictions to offer a universal solution for all users. This new feature would be a significant improvement over the current chat transferring method.

The details of how this new universal transfer feature will work are not yet clear, as it is still under development. Through this, WhatsApp aims to provide a more user-friendly and universally applicable migration solution.

WhatsApp Chat History transfer feature

WhatsApp is releasing a new beta update with version 2.24.13.3, which brings a new feature that allows users to pin their most important channels to the top of their channel list.

To pin a channel, users simply choose the channel and use the pin option in the app’s top bar. Once pinned, the channel will remain at the top of the list for easy access.
