In July last year, WhatsApp made transferring chat data from iOS to Android phones and vice versa more convenient. Now, there are reports that the company is working on cloud-free chat history transfer between Android smartphones.

According to WABetaInfo, in the latest WhatsApp beta version 2.23.1.26, the company is working on allowing users to access conversations on different Android devices without the hassle of backing up chat history to Google Drive. The feature will be accessible by going to WhatsApp Settings > Chats and then selecting the “Transfer chat to Android” option.

To transfer data, users will need to download WhatsApp on the device they want to share chats with and scan the available QR by opening WhatsApp on the other device. One important thing to note, however, is that while the ability provides a faster way to transfer conversations between devices without updating chat records, it doesn’t replace the importance of backing up chats. It is still recommended that users back up chats regularly to Google Drive to protect their conversations in case they experience problems with their phones.

The feature is in the making and is currently not accessible even to beta testers. Moreover, WhatsApp is yet to reveal the launch date of this feature.
