There are many features WhatsApp is working on that could be released shortly. Users may now effortlessly import chat backups without any hassle thanks to a new Import Backup feature that has surfaced. Here is how it will proceed.
WhatsApp Will Make Importing Backups Easier
According to a recent report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp for Android beta is currently testing a feature that will provide users a new option to import chat backups when setting up a new phone or WhatsApp account.
The previously exported chats will be locally imported if you choose this option. When the Wi-Fi network is sluggish, this can be useful. For those who are unaware, WhatsApp presently maintains chat backups on iCloud for iPhones and Google Drive for Android devices.
Since there won’t be any dependency on external cloud storage services, local chat backup imports will just make the procedure much simpler.
You can see a screenshot of what this would look like that WABetaInfo shared below.
One thing to keep in mind is that the functionality is still under development and can’t be used by beta testers. It should soon be available to iOS users as well. There is no information on whether or not this will reach the broader public, though. A timeframe is unknown even if it does. When this occurs, we’ll let you know. As a result, pay attention.
