WhatsApp has recently introduced a new feature that allows users to transfer their chat history from an old phone to a new phone quickly.
This is done using a QR code, making the transfer process faster and more convenient.
How to Transfer Your Chats?
To transfer your WhatsApp chats from your old device to a new one, follow these simple steps:
- Open WhatsApp on your old device.
- Go to Settings > Chats > Chat transfer.
- You will be prompted to scan a QR code from your new phone to complete the transfer process.
- Make sure both phones are connected to the same Wi-Fi network for a successful transfer.
No Need for Third-Party Apps
With this new QR code-based transfer method, WhatsApp assures users that their data transfer is secure and doesn’t require third-party apps.
Additionally, it offers more privacy than cloud services because the data is encrypted during the transfer and only shared between your two devices.
Say Goodbye to Cloud Backup
Previously, WhatsApp used cloud backup to transfer data between devices with the same operating system.
However, the new QR code method eliminates the need for cloud backup. Nevertheless, it’s still recommended to regularly back up your data.
This new method allows users to back up their chat history and transfer large media files and links instantly.
By introducing this QR code support feature, WhatsApp has made it easier and more secure for users to transfer their old chats to new phones.
