Signal, an end-to-end encrypted messaging platform, has reportedly released a new tool in its beta update. The messaging service has added a new tool that allows users to move their conversations to a new phone without much hassle. Currently, the privacy-focused app only lets users make local backups, and if a user wants to move chats to a new phone, he/she needs to manually transfer the backup to his/her new device. Like said before, the newly-added tool is currently available in the Signal Beta app only and may release on the stable build in the coming stable update.
Now Move Signal Chats to a New Phone Easily
Currently released in the beta version of Signal, the new tool allows you to move your entire account to a new phone without much hassle. Moreover, the connection between the two phones will be end-to-end encrypted for extra security. At the moment, if you want to transfer your chats to a new phone then you need to first create a local backup and then transfer that backup file to your new phone. Next, you can just import the backup on your new phone while setting up your Signal account.
Speaking of the new Signal chat migration feature, it is currently only live in the Signal beta v5.5.1 version. On top of that, to make the feature work, both phones must run this version of Signal for transferring the chats. As it’s not available in the stable version, you can test it out by installing the latest beta version of Signal from APK Mirror. If you already have joined Signal’s beta program then you can install it from Google Play Store too. The feature should come soon to a wider audience through the stable release.
