WA Reader is a free tool to read WhatsApp conversation from email text backups. It takes a text file from you which contain all the messages with timestamps that you have exported from a chat. It parses the messages and places them in chat bubbles having similar colors as WhatsApp. You can read the entire conversation and you can also see the names of the participants on the top right corner. However, there is a small problem that it doesn’t works perfectly with groups chats. Right now, you can use it to only read individual chats.
If you have ever exported WhatsApp chat then you will know that it create a text file to save the messages. And those messages in text form are very messy. You can’t simply read them as they are mixed with timestamps and other formatting. But if you can fed them to a tool that will convert them to a conversation like view then it will be good. And that’s what I will discuss in the post below. You just have to specify text file and the tool here will parse all the messages from it accordingly. This tool is open source and if you want to run it locally on your PC then you can do that.
