Do you have important WhatsApp messages you want to forward to a friend via email? Here is the guide on how to send WhatsApp chats on Android Tablet, Window Phones (Lumia), and iPhone.
Apart from directly forwarding a chat to your contact right on the messaging app, you can also do the same to an email address.
Be careful on what you say on group chat, or the kind of message you share on social media and text messaging app because it could be documented, and used against you.
- WhatsApp chats are sent a plain text attachment named as “WhatsApp Chat: contact/group.txt” file.
- You need internet connection to perform the task below.
