Agree on the syncing and the limited history on the web version.

Got the old Whatsapp Web back when I switched from Note10 to S22U.
Now I'm back on the 7 day countdown. Any way to stop it from switching to the new Whatsapp Web?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

The best option I've found for WhatsApp web on a phone is:
WhatsApp Web to go

I don't know if this has been around for a while now (I don't use voice notes much), but I just noticed that you can now drag up the voice note button to lock it on so you don't have to hold it down, and then you can pause the recording and even leave the app/chat and come back later to continue recording.

I'm looking for some creative ideas on how to merge two WhatsApp accounts.

I would like to switch the phone number of account / phone A to phone B. The problem is that phone B already has a WhatsApp account with some groups that I would like to keep.

Is there anyway to merge personal chats?
Will it keep me part of both accounts WhatsApp groups?

Very complicated, is your phone rooted?

Many years ago when I had a rooted phone I used an app called WA tweeks (I think thats the name) and they had an option to merge the 2 databases.

The issue is to get the database out of the phone decrypted is not possible on the latest versions of WA. The only way is to downgrade and play a lot of shtick.

Why don't you install GBWhatsapp on phone B as a second account and maintain them simultaneously? Not so difficult to move chat databases from one phone to the other.

That's the way it is now, it's very annoying and confusing for people

The phone isn't rooted, but I can possibly move my WhatsApp over to a rooted phone, that sounds like a pain though.
I don't believe WhatsApp lets you use an old version of their app.

Another question is when to switch over my number, before or after the merge? And will I loose my groups?
