Getting the Data

More simple than I thought, I never realised you could get this on WhatsApp. On your phone, go to the WhatsApp group and click the dot dot dots in the top right. Then got to ‘More’ and to ‘Export chat’. You can then select where to save this. I chose Google Drive and put it where I would be creating my Jupyter Notebook.


Just a little comment on the setup I went for. I used a Jupyter Notebook as for this kind of analysis, that is done in little parts, I think it works really well to execute each cell. Here are a couple of tips with some special functions that help in Jupyter.
