Transferring chats between devices has been a major headache for WhatsApp users. Until very recently, moving chats between Android and iOS devices was notoriously difficult, often requiring third-party apps and complex workarounds. Even moving chats from one Android device to another has been far from straightforward. However, WhatsApp’s latest update aims to simplify this process significantly.

WhatsApp for Android recently introduced a new feature designed to streamline chat migration. This feature allows users to transfer their chat history between Android devices using a QR code. This eliminates the need for manual Google Drive backups, making the process much more user-friendly and efficient.
