It is possible that at some time, whether for personal or professional reasons, you wanted to send a WhatsApp conversation by mail and you did not know how to get it. We will explain the steps to carry out this process in a simple way.
Obviously, to achieve what we have indicated, it is necessary to perform a manual process because you will not automatically be able to do it (we are always talking about the WhatsApp Drive backup, which will shortly occupy space in the storage service in the cloud). The case is that the messaging application itself includes everything necessary to take the steps and send the content of a specific conversation to an email address.
Of course, to take advantage of this possibility and send a conversation WhatsApp by mail, you need that the version of your operating system is the sixth (Marshmallow) or more current Google development. Otherwise, in the different menus that appear you will not find the necessary options.
