WhatsApp, one of the most popular cross-platform messaging apps available today, is testing a feature that will make it easier for users to migrate their chats from an Android device to an iPhone.
The feature, which is the reverse of the one that regularly makes it easier to switch from iPhones to Android phones, was first spotted by WABetaInfo and is part of recent WhatsApp TestFlight betas. The feature is not yet available, but the screenshots show the feature.
As you can see from this screenshot, WhatsApp will ask you for permission to import chat history before starting the process.
Please note that in we explained that the Move to iOS app will be needed to migrate your chat history. More details will be available when the feature is enabled in a future update.
Unfortunately, this feature is not currently available and supported operating systems are unknown. We don’t have details on when the feature will be released, but we’re following development and will let you know as soon as there’s any news.
The Move to iOS app is available for download from the Google Play Store and is designed to help people migrate from their Android devices to a new iPhone.
WhatsApp is one of the best iPhone apps for people who need to be able to communicate with people on Android, but migrating chats from Android devices to iPhone has always been a problem. WhatsApp’s move to address this issue is welcome and can’t happen soon enough.
