WhatsApp finally releasing a feature to transfer chats between android & iphone

Many of you have tried to migrate your chats from your old Android phone to a new iOS device and realized that you could not do it. Don’t worry, now WhatsApp is working on the chat migration feature between IOS and Android.

As you know, WhatsApp is the most widely used encrypted chat app, with a userbase larger than the second most popular encrypted messenger, Telegram. While Telegram has always boasted more features than WhatsApp, one significant advantage has been using the app from multiple devices, including iOS and Android.

While WhatsApp has been working on multi-device support for a while now, reports have emerged that it is working on another related feature to complement it.

Leaked Reports 

According to some reports by a noted leaker WABetaInfo, the development team working on the popular chat app works on a feature to allow users to migrate their chats between iOS and Android devices. This could make switching between platforms extremely easy when it is released in the future. The ability to transfer chats could come in very handy and eliminate the need to use shady third-party apps which use “workarounds” to migrate some of your chats from iOS to Android and vice versa.

Screenshot of the beta app

A screenshot of the feature, shared by WABetaInfo, shows a caricature of two phones near
each other, resembling an iPhone with a large notch and the other with a punch hole, similar
to the Pixel 4a screen. The screenshot says the WhatsApp version needs to be updated in
order to be able to perform the transfer, but it appears that it will only work if users are part
of the WhatsApp beta TestFlight program, which is currently full.

Release Date

The report also states that the company is working on the feature and that it could take a long
while as a lot of code had to be rewritten so the service would be compatible with multiple
devices. This feature has also been directly linked to using their desktop version without an
internet connection on their smartphone or true multi-device support. While there is no date
set for this feature to be released, the report notes it is likely to be available along with the
release of multi-device support.
