WhatsApp prepares extended chat migration from Android to iPhone, will require “Move to iOS” app
Samsung users who want to migrate to iPhone can already transfer their WhatsApp chat history without any problem. Now the app continues to build support to allow all Android users to do the same.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp for iOS beta 22.2.74 adds the ability to import user’s chat history from Android to iPhone. From now on, users can migrate from iOS to Samsung devices as well as from iOS to Pixel phones. With this change, users only need an Android 12 smartphone and the Move to iOS app to migrate their chat history to iPhone.
As you can see in the screenshot above, users will be able to import their chat history to iPhone the first time they open WhatsApp for iOS. If they skip this step, they won’t be able to import the messages later.
WABetaInfo also note that version 188.8.131.52 of WhatsApp for Android also contains new data suggesting that the app is working to implement this feature in both versions, as its changelog shows that the Move to iOS app will be required to complete the migration from one operating system to another.
As of now, there is no timeline on when users will be able to import chat history from Android to iOS, although it’s been too long since WhatsApp promised this feature.
Another feature that users can’t wait to take full advantage of is cross-device support, which Telegram has had for years, and it makes no sense why WhatsApp isn’t able to implement it in the same way. way.
Currently, users can enjoy cross-device support as a public beta feature on WhatsApp for desktop, web, and portal. In the future, the app plans to build version 2.0 bringing more features to support multiple devices like a standalone iPad app.
