[How-To] Backup Chat Text and Media Files in WhatsApp Chat Conversations

WhatsApp is considered to be a very good IM application, reason being it keeps the record of all the chat which has been done with every friend of yours on your iPhone. But you never know if your iPhone gets restored due to any OS bug or you might need to delete the application from your phone for some reason or it can be any other reason. So, it is better if you can take the backup of all the chat history on WhatsApp from time to time as they might include some precious photos. In this post we will tell you that how can you do that.

Select the conversation and scroll up to reach the top of the chat wherein you will see certain options related to that chat. Tap on the Info button.

Now scroll down to the last option of the screen and select the option to email the conversation.

Now you may attach the media or you may not, the email with the media will be considerably heavy depending on the time duration of which you mailing the conversation. The chat test will be sent in the text file and the other media of the chat will be attached separately in the mail.


This feature is good but the problem is that your WhatsApp data is not saved anywhere apart from your phone, so do not expect any data which was deleted by your in the chat record. This is the best method to take the back up of all the audios and images shared with the friends on WhatsApp and I will suggest all the reader to keep on doing this from time to time.
