Local chat transfer facility is coming on WhatsApp for Android users.

A new report by WABetaInfo says that upcoming version of WhatsApp will allow people to transfer their WhatsApp data from one Android device to another Android device using a local network (either through Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi Direct). On January 6 they said, “Yesterday, we shared information about a new chat transfer option for Android discovered during the development of the WhatsApp beta for Android This feature will allow users to switch to a new Android device without having to back up their chat history on Google Drive.

The feature is still in development but we can announce that WhatsApp is actively working to further develop and improve upon the chat transfer feature for Android devices as we’ve discovered additional details about its functionality thanks to the WhatsApp beta for Android update”


According to Sam Mobile, “The new chat transfer feature through a local network was spotted in WhatsApp Beta versions and The ability is quite straightforward. When you install WhatsApp on a new device, you have to select the option to import chats from another device, which will open the device’s camera to scan a QR code. Now, on your other device, you have to go to WhatsApp settings and select the option to export the data to another device, which will bring up a QR code. Now, scan that QR code with your new device, and voila, both the phone will connect using a local network and exchange data.

This upcoming feature in WhatsApp will not only simplify the process of transferring chats but will also be significantly faster compared to the current process, as transferring data over a local network is usually much faster than downloading it from a cloud service.”
