“WhatsApp Introduces Seamless Chat History Transfer Between Smartphones via QR Code

WhatsApp has introduced a new feature that allows users to transfer their chat and media history between smartphones based on the same operating system without the need to exit the app. The feature is faster than backing up and restoring chat history and can be accessed by scanning the QR code of the WhatsApp on an old device for the transfer by opting “Chat transfer” inside “settings”. To transfer your chat history, make sure both devices are turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, open WhatsApp on the old device and go to Settings > Chats > Chat transfer. This is the first time the company is introducing a local transfer method for such migration.

WhatsApp already supports iOS to Android and Android to iOS migration, but both methods are slightly more complicated than scanning a QR code. The chat app also has a multi-device feature for a single account, which allows users to sync messages sent and received with a single account.
