WeChat Provides Back Up to Save the Day

Posted by on 12. March 2014

“Digital Communication has been too handy that we miss out on the little things like taking notes but thanks to WeChat it provides a chat history back up so we can easily access the information we need in our phone archives.”

WeChat Back Up Features

Have an important meeting and you forgot the venue? Or you have to make a call but you weren’t able to save the number in your contact details?  Or you need an important data in your chat conversation?  That’s some of the problem that people including me encounter.  Since most of the applications are now easily accessible at the palm of our hands, we miss out on the little things like jotting down the address, the number and other important information in a piece of paper for faster recall.  That’s how things have evolved in the digital communication age but fear not as WeChat can act 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.

Once you’ve saved your chats, you can protect them by setting a password.

To restore your conversations on any device, simply log on and tap “Restore” on the Chat History Backup window. The backed-up history will be restored to your device from the server.

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, Events and Places

Sometimes hidden in our conversations are important dates such as birthdays, anniversary and some important occasion.  Then there are the getaway details you get to complete as you are on a group chat with your friends. Then there’s the address of the newest Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza in Salcedo Village messaged by your friend.  All this we can retrieve through WeChat’s data back up and retrieval function.

2)   Keeping lists and reminders

The digital age has already replaced the common post it notes reminders. We now keep those information in the archives of conversation we have or sent to us like the grocery list your mom sent you to buy, or your list of to dos for the day, or the detailed directions going to the venue of a scenic trail in Tanay, Rizal or Cavinti, Laguna, or an instruction on how to replace your road bike tires when you got a flat tire in the middle of nowhere.

3)   Retrieving work exchanges

WeChat has also made work communication much easier especially within a team. Find those deadlines hidden in the conversation or step-by-step process you’ve discussed over your next big project, or even the name of the new boss or staff you have to meet in the field that day.  There are a lot more work applications and good thing there’s WeChat Archiving services that can store this key information and instructions.

One of the important things in communication is the ability to archive our data and be able to check it out again for future reference.  WeChat makes checking those key information immediately with its Chat History Back Up Feature.
