JOY! WhatsApp Android to iPhone transfer soon! WABetaInfo reveals what's coming
WhatsApp Android to iPhone transfer: WABetaInfo has revealed that the company will finally be rolling out this WhatsApp feature soon. Earlier, it was virtually impossible to transfer WhatsApp chat data from Android to iPhone when users switched phones.
WhatsApp Android to iPhone transfer: The company has been working on bringing a new feature to its platform that would enable users to move their data, which includes their WhatsApp chats and the media that they shared from the company's iOS-based platform, mostly in use on Apple iPhones, to its Android-based platform. Reports in the past have indicated that the company is working on a detailed guide that will help WhatsApp users to transfer their data from iOS to Android and it was made possible recently. Now, word is that WhatsApp Android to iPhone transfer will be rolled out soon too.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a feature that will enable its users to transfer their chat data from Android to iPhones. As of now, when a smartphone user migrates from Google's Android platform to Apple's iOS, all of their WhatsApp data, which includes their text chats, all the links that they have shared, and all the videos and images that they have, are lost. But WhatsApp's upcoming feature changes this by letting users migrate their chats and media from WhatsApp's Android app to WhatsApp's iOS app.
A screenshot of the feature shared by the blog site gives us a glimpse of WhatsApp Move Chats to iOS feature. The screenshot shows that WhatsApp users will be able to transfer their ‘chat history and media to their new iPhones'. They will have to tap on the Start button under the relevant settings to begin the process. Apart from this, WhatsApp users will also be able to cancel the process or transfer their WhatsApp data to another mobile number.
Furthermore, the blog site says that while WhatsApp Move Chats to iOS feature is still under development, it will probably need a cable to complete the process. Also, when the feature is released on the beta version of WhatsApp's Android-based app, it will not be restricted to Samsung smartphones as in the case with the recently released functionality that enables iPhone users to transfer their WhatsApp data to Samsung smartphones only. That said, WhatsApp may require Android smartphone users to use a certain version of the messaging app in order to transfer their WhatsApp data from Android to iPhones.
