WhatsApp is working to transfer chat history between iOS and Android

Through the third-party app the transfer is made possible.



WhatsApp is finally testing the ability to allow users to migrate chat history between iOS and Android devices. According to WABetaInfo,

The feature will allow WhatsApp Web (including Portal) to be used without an Internet connection on your device, at first. In a future update, WhatsApp will allow linking other iOS and Android mobile devices.

WhatsApp has been playing with this idea to transfer WhatsApp chats between both platforms but as each uses different cloud services to store data it would be a bit tough. However, through the third-party application, the transfer of WhatsApp chats between Android and iOS can be made possible.

The image provided by WABetaInfo shows that WhatsApp will allow users to migrate the chat history from the iOS App to the Android app, and the other way around.

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.

As this feature is currently under testing, there is no exact timeline for its release. This feature is already available in other message apps, such as Telegram.
