Can We Export WhatsApp chat without any External App on Android?

No, for now, you can not export WhatsApp chat without any external app on Android. In the past, you could disable Google Drive backups to create local backups of WhatsApp. Before uninstalling WhatsApp, you might then move these local backups to a new phone or store them in a different folder. You could recover the media and chats after reinstalling it by putting the backup file back in the right folder. You are sadly unable to accomplish that at this time. For devices with Android 10 or newer, WhatsApp offers alternative options for data transfer. You can use the built-in Chat Transfer feature for direct phone-to-phone transfers, or back up data to Google Drive (Android) or iCloud (iOS) for easy restoration. While third-party apps are available, they are less secure and often require paid subscriptions. Additionally, chats can be exported as PDFs for documentation purposes.
