1 Mins read

WhatsApp is working on a feature that will allow users to transfer their chat history across Android and iOS devices.

According to WABetaInfo, the messaging platform will roll out the chat history migration feature in a future update that will enable users to migrate chat history on different devices. The website has also shared a screenshot, which shows that a user required to use the latest version of WhatsApp to transfer chat history to an Android phone.

“When the user tries to link a device having a different operating system to his WhatsApp account, it’s always needed to update to the latest WhatsApp update available on the App Store or TestFlight, in order to avoid any compatibility error with the Android version.” 

WaBetaInfo reports

At the moment, when a user switches from iOS to Android or vice versa, WhatsApp transfers their account information including their profile photo, name, about, individual chats, group chats, and settings, but it doesn’t migrate the chat history.

The exact release date of this feature is still unknown, however, reports suggest it could arrive with multiple device features.
