WhatsApp Is Finally Bringing An Official Way To Transfer Chat History From An iPhone To Android

WhatsApp is finally bringing an official way to transfer chat history from an iPhone to android.

If you’re an iPhone user and have been thinking about switching to an Android device, but drop that idea because of WhatsApp, possibly the most important messaging app on your device, then cheer up because you are finally getting what you have wished for years.

WhatsApp will soon let users transfer their chat history, including photos and voice memos, between iOS and Android. However, the big catch here is that it would be available starting with new Galaxy models, and WhatsApp hasn’t said a word about whether the feature would work vice versa for Android and iPhone.

WhatsApp confirmed the rumours.

Probably among the biggest announcements on Wednesday during Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event, WhatsApp finally confirmed the long-rumoured feature. The chat history transfer app is said to be available for Samsung’s newer premium devices, including the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, first and will eventually roll out to other Samsung phones in the coming weeks. While we understand that the same tool should also work for Android to iPhone chat transfer for WhatsApp users, for the moment, there’s no word when it will be available to users.

Where it will be able to be transferred.

Engadget, in a report, adds that the chat history feature would be available on Samsung phones running Android 10 or newer versions. Of course, this was apart from the newer premium foldable devices. The report further said that the chat transfer would also include images and voice memos.

The messaging platform has said that implementing the chat transfer tool was difficult as the app uses end-to-end encryption. WhatsApp added that migrating chats demanded additional work from all WhatsApp, OS developers, and OEM manufacturers.

Sharing additional details, The Verge reports that the chat migration from an iPhone to Samsung devices (which would get it first) would require using Lightning to USB-C. Adding further, the report adds that the new chat migration will not merge chats stored in two different cloud storage – iCloud for iPhones and Google Drive for Android. This means if you’ve switched between the two platforms, then chances are you may not be able to merge chat history ever.
