WA Reader is a web-tool aimed to help users view their WhatsApp back-up chats in a familiar user-interface.
You can upload the text file of your chat to the tool and you will be able to view instantly.
The tool is completely open-sourced making it secure to use.
You can upload your WhatsApp Text file which is of format
.txt that you get from the Email Conversation button in your WhatsApp app.
We recently, launched the support for uploading the
.zip file of your chat if you wish to view the attachments as well. This feature is still in development, please report bugs if you face any. Since we have to show the media files they are temporarily stored on the server, but as soon as you refresh the page, or click on view another chat all the files get deleted.
Ads on the website helps in covering the hosting costs.

Note from developers:
WA Reader was initially developed to read a personal chat and it has evolved since then.
There can be some issues with the chats since the format with which WhatsApp exports chats can change anytime without any notice. Please feel free to open a new issue on GitHub if you are not able to use the app properly. You can find the source code on GitHub here which has
instructions for you to even set up the code locally.
Shout out to all the contributors who helped shape the project to its current form.
