WhatsApp has a long list of features up its sleeve, which may be introduced soon. Now a new Import Backup feature has surfaced, which will allow users to easily import chat backups without any hassle. Here’s how it will work.
WhatsApp Will Make Importing Backups Easier
In a recent report, WABetaInfo states that the WhatsApp for Android beta is testing a feature that will offer users a new option to import chat backups when setting up a new phone or WhatsApp account again.
This option will import the previously exported chats locally. This can prove to be helpful in situations when the Wi-Fi network is slow. For those who don’t know, WhatsApp currently stores chat backups on Google Drive for Android and iCloud for iPhone.
Local chat backup import will only make the process a lot easier, as there will be no dependency on third-party cloud storage platforms. WABetaInfo has shared a screenshot of what it will look like and you can check it out below.
One thing to note is that this feature is still a work in progress and hence, cannot be used by beta users. We can also expect it to land for iOS users soon. However, there is no word on whether it will reach the general audience. And if it does, a timeline is not known. We’ll let you know whenever it happens. Therefore, stay tuned.
In related news, the Meta-owned messaging platform is also released a new update for iOS users in which iOS users will be able to undo deleted messages on WhatsApp.
