Easily transfer WhatsApp chat history on Android and iOS using QR code method, here’s how…

Meta introduced an easier way for WhatsApp users to migrate their chat history from their old phone to their new phone, eliminating the need for backups or cloud services. Android and iOS users can now directly transfer chat history, including media attachments, between phones running the same operating system. This new feature uses QR codes and applies to most chats except for payment messages and call history.

For Android devices, make sure both phones are running Android Lollipop 5.1 or Android 6 or later. New devices are not registered on WhatsApp until transfer. Turn on Wi-Fi on both phones and connect to the same network.

On iOS, both old and new iPhones need WhatsApp for iOS version or later. Here’s how to transfer chat history:

Transfer WhatsApp chat history to Android phone:

  1. Open WhatsApp on your old phone and go to More Options > Settings > Chats > Switch Chats > Get Started.
  2. Install WhatsApp on the new phone and register with the same number.
  3. Select Start on Transfer chat history from old phone.
  4. Grant the necessary permissions to view the QR code. Scan this code with your old device.
  5. After granting permission, the process will begin.
  6. When the import is complete, tap Done.

Transfer WhatsApp Chat History to iOS device:

  1. Open WhatsApp on your old iPhone and go to Settings > Chats > Transfer Chats to iPhone > Get Started.
  2. Install WhatsApp on your new phone and register with your number.
  3. Select Continue to transfer chat history to iPhone.
  4. Use the old phone’s camera to scan the QR code displayed on the new device.

Once the transfer is complete, set up your profile on the new device. This new feature improves the convenience of migrating your WhatsApp chat history, making the transition to a new device easier.
