Whatsapp Is Allegedly Working On An Ios To Android Chat History Transfer Feature

According to WABetaInfo and 9to5Google, WhatsApp is working on a means for users to transfer their chat histories from iPhone to Android.
The functionality could resolve one of the most vexing issues with Facebook’s messaging service: the fact that you can’t move a backup of your messages between iPhone and Android, only between phones running the same operating system.
Since at least April, details of the in-development functionality have appeared in WhatsApp’s software.
According to screenshots released by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp’s iPhone app now has a new “Move talks to Android” option.
A second screenshot shows a screen instructing users to leave their iPhone unlocked and WhatsApp open during the transfer.
Most evidence has pointed to an iOS to Android transfer feature so far, although WABetaInfo has previously indicated that the converse will be available as well.
Thank you, @xdadevelopers, for discovering the “Switch to Android” software, which allows you to move your WhatsApp chat history from Apple to Android.
The process is depicted in these screenshots.
This feature is in the works and will be released in a future update.

Switch to Android could make it easier to transition to Google’s operating system, similar to Apple’s “Move to iOS” software that helps customers migrate from Android to iOS.
According to XDA Developers, code in Google’s app shows it might interface with WhatsApp’s unannounced transfer tool.
The migration option is being beta tested at the same time as WhatsApp’s multi-device support, which allows users to view their conversations from numerous devices without having to go via a single phone.
WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is working on a means to move chat histories between different phone numbers, in addition to transferring them between platforms.
It’s uncertain when any of these features will be generally available at this time.
