WhatsApp itself doesn't have a shortcut button for us to print out the chat history, so you should explore other approaches. I’m going to share some effective ways to print WhatsApp data from iPhone. When I only need some WhatsApp text messages to be printed out, I usually choose method one. When it comes to print out the whole WhatsApp chats in well displayed for important use, I prefer the third one. Let’s take a closer look at these ways.
Method one: Print only messages with email
Email the WhatsApp conversations that you want to print out, and download the chat history in .txt file from your mail box. Then print the .txt file out.
Method two: Print the screenshots
Capture the WhatsApp messages on your iPhone, then send these screenshots to your computer to have them printed. With this method, color printing will be more suitable I think. It will work perfectly if you want to print few text messages.
Method three: Print out the HTML file
You can use a professional WhatsApp backup tool to transfer WhatsApp data from iPhone to computer. I would strongly recommend iFonebox to you. When a HTML file is exported to your computer, open it and click the print button to print the iPhone WhatsApp chat history along with media thumbnails included in the conversation.
Key features of the application:
- It has three different working modes: recover from iOS device, recover from iTunes backup, recover from iCloud backup
- It’s capable of handling with various kinds of data like contacts, notes, photos, videos, voice memos, safari history, call records, etc.
- It is quite ease of use and totally safe
