WhatsApp introduced a new feature that makes it easier to transfer chats from your old phone to your new phone. WaBetaInfo discovered a new method for transferring messages that allows you to restore conversations to a new iPhone without the need for a cloud backup option. For Android beta testers, a comparable functionality is already available.
According to the sources, there will be a new “Transfer Chats to iPhone” option in the app’s Settings section > Chats. Here, one can transfer chat history to a new iPhone without relying on an iCloud backup. According to the sources, all that is necessary is to download WhatsApp on their new phone, register with the same phone number, then use the old device to scan the QR code shown on the newly purchased mobile phone to transfer their chat history.
This functionality might be quite handy and useful for individuals who quickly run out of cloud storage capacity. For your information, Apple only gives 5GB of online storage capacity to its consumers through iCloud. In comparison, Google provides at least 15GB of free space that is distributed among Google services. It is no longer necessary to utilize the cloud option to recover conversations; however, this functionality is not yet available to everyone.
According to the sources, the new functionality that allows you to move your chats to a separate iPhone is now accessible to select beta testers. If people wish to check out the new functionality, they must use the most recent version of WhatsApp beta for iOS through the TestFlight app.
The platform has included the option to utilize a single WhatsApp account on different phones, which is also accessible in the stable version of the program. Until now, people could only use one account across multiple devices such as desktops and laptops, but not phones.
You can also connect your mobile phone to up to four more devices in the same way that you can connect your WhatsApp on web browsers, tablets, and desktops. The connection method is identical to connecting your single WhatsApp account to several devices. WhatsApp’s home page > settings section > Linked devices would have the multi-device sharing capability. Simply tap on Link a device and follow the on-screen instructions to enable the feature.
In case you are also tired of clearing your Whatsapp storage on Android devices. Below we have mentioned the easy steps to clear out your WhatsApp storage.
- Open your WhatsApp and navigate to the WhatsApp “chats” tab.
- The next step is to click on “more options” and then select settings.
- The next step is to select the “storage and data” tab and the storage management options will be available to you.
- After selecting “storage and data”, you will be able to see the option for ”manage storage” and tap to proceed further.
- After that, you’ll see two categories of storage – “forwarded many times” and “larger than 5 MB” and these will show you the messages and the files that are using the most of your storage.
To delete files, you may either pick and delete them one at a time or select numerous objects and delete them all at once. Once you’ve decided which items to delete, simply click the “delete” icon and you’re done. You may also remove the things directly in the WhatsApp chat by utilizing the search option. To accomplish this, go to the “chat section” and touch on the various categories you wish to eliminate. Then, tap “delete” on the photos, videos, and documents you want to delete. After completing all of these procedures, you should notice more storage on your phone as well as a smoother operation of WhatsApp.
