With the help of a new update, a user can transfer WhatsApp chat from one android device to another without the help of Google Drive. For this purpose simply follow the below steps:
- Go to WhatsApp Settings
- Click Chats
- Enter Chats Transfer to Android
- Scan the given QR code
- Follow all the remaining instructions popping on the screen
Report Inappropriate Content Shared on Status
So far people were able to report any violation of the rules set by WhatsApp or problematic media & messages sent from anyone. However, with the help of new updates, anyone can report objectionable content present in WhatsApp Stories.
