You may now transfer conversations from android to iPhone using WhatsApp.
Users of WhatsApp now have the option to utilize the Move to iOS software from Apple to move their discussion chat history, images, videos, and voice messages from their Android device to their iPhone. Users could only transfer conversations from an iPhone to an Android device before this update. It will take roughly a week for all users to receive the beta version of the ability to move WhatsApp data from Android to iPhone, which launches today.
“We’re adding to WhatsApp the ability to securely switch between phones and transfer your chat history, photos, videos, and voice messages between Android and iPhone while maintaining end-to-end encryption,” Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement. “This is a top requested feature. We launched the ability switch from iPhone–>Android last year and now adding Android–>iPhone as well.”
Only brand-new or factory-reset iPhones support the transfer process, according to WhatsApp.
Additionally, your Android smartphone and iPhone both need to be running iOS 15.5 or above. Open the Move to iOS app on your Android phone, then follow the on-screen instructions to begin. A code will appear on your iPhone once you have followed the instructions.
On your Android phone, a popup to input the code will appear. You must then select “Continue” and adhere to the on-screen instructions. On the “Transfer Data” box, you must then choose “WhatsApp.” Then, on your Android phone, hit “Start” to begin the procedure.
To return to the Move to iOS app, you must then touch “Next.” After that, you must hit “Continue” and wait for Move to iOS to confirm that the data transfer from your Android phone to your iPhone has been successful. Then, you must download WhatsApp’s most recent version from the App Store and log in with the same phone number that you used on your previous smartphone. You will then be asked to hit “Start” in order to start the procedure.
According to WhatsApp, you may transfer your account information, profile picture, individual and group conversations, chat histories, media, and settings using this method. Your call history and display name cannot be transferred, though.
