Last year, WhatsApp announced the ability to move WhatsApp chat history from iOS to Android. This included voice messages, photos and videos. Today, WhatsApp announced the ability to move WhatsApp chat history from Android to iOS.
This is one of the most requested features among WhatsApp users. With this new feature, users can securely switch between phones and transfer their chat history, photos, videos, and voice messages between Android and iPhone while maintaining end-to-end encryption.
One of the most requested features we’ve had is to make it possible to transfer chat history from one operating system to another when switching phones. We’ve been hard at work with operating system and device manufacturers to build it in a secure and reliable way.
This feature will also attract users to WhatsApp from Apple iMessage. Apple iMessage only allows you to communicate with other Apple device owners and makes it difficult for people to switch to Android and other platforms.
