WhatsApp Could Add Chat Transfer without Cloud Backup

Moving WhatsApp chats between Android devices is about to become easier and not reliant on a cloud backup in Drive.


Transferring from iOS to or vice verse is not as efficient as it really should be in 2023. One example is the complication of transferring chats from platform to platform, which requires cloud backups. In July 2022, the company made improvements to make the process easier, and now WhatsApp could introduce chat history transfer without cloud backup.

However, WABetaInfo suggests this ability will only be for Android to Android transfers. This feature appears in of WhatsApp beta showing the company is developing a tool to access chats across Android devices without needing to backup in Drive.

Users will be able to access the transfer by heading to Settings > Charts and then select “Chat transfer to Android”.

To make this work, the user would need to have WhatsApp on the target device for the chat transfer, and then scan the QR code on that app. This certainly smooths over the experience of sharing chats between devices. Even so, I would still recommend backing up chats if they are important.

Delete for Me Change

Last month, WhatsApp introduced a new option to reverse accidental Reverse for Me presses. WhatsApp chief, Will Cathcart, says that there is now an undo option for “Delete for Me” when someone accidentally chooses it.

As it suggests, the option will allow users to revert back to their option and undo the delete. Then they can either choose “Delete for Everyone” or just leave the message. Of course, the “Delete for Me” option will be available again.

It is worth noting that the recipient will still see a notification if you choose “Delete for Everyone”. However, the notification will read “this message has been deleted.”
