Stage 1. Export Photos from WhatsApp on Phone
Before printing, we have to extract all the photos we hope to print from our phone. In this part, we will first introduce two ways to extract all WhatsApp photos at once, then mention the way to print the WhatsApp photos in PC/Mac.
1.1 Export Photos in a WhatsApp Chat via WhatsApp Export Chat
This chat exporting method provided by WhatsApp is often used to back up the messages, but you can also export the media files including stickers, photos, and videos. Each time you can only export one of the chats, so if you are hoping to print all of the photos in WhatsApp, it is impossible, unless you do it one by one. But if you only need the WhatsApp photos from the chats with your family, best friend or love, it can perfectly do that. To make that happen,
Step 1 Open the chat with the photos you want to print. iPhone users tap on the top of the screen. Android users tap on the three dots on the top right corner.
Step 2 From the list provided, find Export Chat and click on it. WhatsApp will ask if you would like to attach media files, which in our case, yes, so tap on Attach Media.
Step 3 WhatsApp will start processing the data. After that, it will ask which app you would like to export to, just choose the one that you can easily access on the computer such as Google Drive, or Mail.
Done! Your WhatsApp photos will be attached in the zip file. Just download it from where you export to your computer.
