There’s another feature in WeChat that we should check out, I’m not aware that you can back up all chat activity and history of your WeChat account, this is useful if you plan to clean up your chat list panel, but if you need to save some chats that are important and very sentimental to you, you no longer need to screen cap everything, but with a press of a button at WeChat settings, you can save the entire chat or everything to WeChat’s cloud and retrieve it again.
according to WeChat,
“Social mobile app WeChat acts as your digital notepad thanks to its Chat History Backup feature, which saves conversation histories and restores them to any device for up to seven (7) days.”
The simple 3-step process of WeChat’s Chat History Backup starts with selecting "Settings" > "General" > "Chat History Backup" and then clicking “Back Up” for the conversations you’d like to store.
To back up your chat history, just follow this quickie steps
1. Go to WeChat
2. Select Settings>General>Chat History Backup
3. Then click and choose a chat conversation you want to save and back up
4. Click Back up and then lock it with a password
To retrieve the chat history
1. Go back to Chat History Back up
2. Then click Retrieve and enter the password
If you have a large chat history, just wait til it finishes saving it in WeChat’s cloud.
Below is a rundown of several instances when this cloud storage solution by WeChat saves your ass from encounters wherein you need to refer to your information while on-the-go.
1. Retrieving important dates
Birthdays, anniversaries, or just about any date set for yearly celebrations are vital details easily forgotten by the human brain. Give your spatial memory an instant boost by referring to conversation histories, which may contain reminders of these occasions. Chats with your sister could reveal her listing hole-in-the wall restaurants like 100 Revolving Restaurant in Quiapo or El Chupacabra in inconspicuous Polaris Street in Makati. Also, conversations with your best friend could remind you of the annual Art in the Park exhibit at Salcedo Village, which you’ve planned to go to together.
2. Keeping lists
If you observe daily routines, it’s easy to spot how digital messages have long replaced the function of tactile Post-its and refrigerator notes. Lacking several things in the pantry? Your mom could’ve sent you a grocery list via WeChat. Receiving a huge package with separate parts of a bike? One quick check of your history could bring up a message from your dad with DIY instructions—helping you you assemble your gear just in time for your mountaineering trip to the dirt trails of Montalban and Camp Aguinaldo.
3. Retrieving work exchanges
Aside from notebooks and emails, digital conversations with colleagues have also been reference points for work-related tasks. Missed out on an important detail relayed to you by your teammate over your WeChat group? No problem. Simply retrieve your file either on your desktop, work phone, or personal phone and proceed to finishing your task.
