The forthcoming version of WhatsApp will allow users to transfer their WhatsApp data from one Android device to another Android device utilising a local network, claims a fresh report from WABetaInfo (either through Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi Direct). Because of this function, Google Drive won’t be required anymore, which means users won’t need to back up their data to the cloud service in order to move their chats across devices.
WhatsApp Beta versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 were found to contain the new chat transfer functionality over a local network. The skill is very simple to use. You must choose the option to import chats from another device while installing WhatsApp on a new device, which launches the camera to scan a QR code. You must now access WhatsApp settings on your alternative device and choose the option to export data to a different device, which will display a QR code. Now scan that QR code with your new handset, and data will start exchanging between the two phones thanks to a local network connection.
Due to the fact that transferring data via a local network is typically far faster than downloading it from a cloud service, this future feature in WhatsApp will not only simplify the process of transferring chats but also be significantly faster compared to the existing procedure.
The new function is presently under development, but beta testers may soon get access to it. When WhatsApp is finished testing the new function, the app’s stable version should be able to use it. On the rollout date, however, there is no firm information. With WhatsApp’s introduction of the chat backup transfer feature during the past year, switching between the two most widely used smartphone platforms has been considerably simpler.
