Transfer Whatsapp Chat History from Android to iOS
Now, Whatsapp is testing the possibility of allowing users to transfer chats from Android to iOS. Before the chat migration feature was announced, it was difficult to migrate chat history from Android to iOS.
If you switch to a new Operating system, you lose all your old chats. This was a big issue for everyone who wanted to switch to a different OS. But now, things have changed as iOS users can move their chats to selected devices.
As per the latest updates, Whatsapp tests the Android to iOS chat migration feature. This new feature was spotted on the Beta version of Android 126.96.36.199.
WABetaInfo, reveals a new option, “import chat history from Android,” on Whatsapp Beta for iOS. They have shared a screenshot that shows Whatsapp will ask permission to import chat history before the process starts.
However, the feature is not yet available as it is currently under development. Also, the new experience is now available to beta testers. It is expected that the feature will be available in the future update.
To transfer the chat history, users might need to connect their Android phones with new iOS devices with the help of Type-C-to-Lightning cable.
