WhatsApp ‘Chat Transfer’ feature: What is it, how to use it


Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly working on a ‘Chat Transfer’ feature that will enable users to transfer their chat from one Android smartphone to another. Last year in July, WhatsApp released a feature that allowed users to move chat from Android to iOS using the Move to iOS app. The feature helped users to switch to a different device without losing their chat history.
Once the feature is rolled out, WhatsApp users will be able to access the feature in the Settings app. As per a report by WABetaInfo, the platform that tests WhatsApp features before they are released to the masses, since the feature will allow users to easily migrate their chat history from the phone to another Android device so they may not need to back up their chat history on Google Drive before switching to a new device.
“Instead, users may simply use the Chat Transfer feature to move their conversation to their new phone,” the report said. It is to be noted that WhatsApp Chat Transfer feature is under development and the company is working on bringing this feature for a future update of the app.
What is the Kept Messages feature and how does it work?
WhatsApp is also working on the ‘Kept Messages’ feature. The company is reportedly working on this feature that will enable users to bookmark Kept Messages in the chat.
As per a report by WABetaInfo, the Kept Messages feature temporarily converts a disappearing message into a standard WhatsApp message for users to find it in the chat even after its expiration. WhatsApp is expected to add a new section called “Kept Messages” within the chat info tab where users will be able to find these messages and this section is likely to be available for all the members in a conversation.
