Whatsapp Will Allow Users To Sync Their Chat History Between Iphone And Android Devices

When you transition from Apple to Android, WhatsApp will now allow you to transport your chat history with you, including all voice notes, images, and conversations.
The long-awaited function was revealed today at Samsung’s launch event, and will first allow transfers from iPhone to the company’s new Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 phones, as well as other Samsung phones “in the coming weeks.” Eventually, the feature will handle all iOS and Android phone transfers, but it’s unclear when that will happen.
The new functionality should help alleviate one of WhatsApp’s most vexing issues: the fact that your chat history has never been officially transferable between mobile operating systems.
If you utilize WhatsApp’s cloud backup option, iPhone chat history are saved in iCloud, while Android chat histories are saved in Google Drive, which means you can only transfer your talks across phones that run the same operating system.
Instead of transferring conversation history over the internet, the new functionality uploads them using a physical Lightning to USB-C cable.
Sadly, if you’ve previously switched between iPhone and Android and have two different cloud backups, the new feature will not integrate them into a single chat history.
Instead, WhatsApp informs me that if you use it to move your chat history and then back it up, any existing backups will be overwritten.
WhatsApp claims the new function will initially allow transfers from iOS to Samsung’s new foldables, with transfers to Samsung devices running Android 10 and up arriving “in the coming weeks.” It did not indicate when the feature would be available for non-Samsung Android phones or when it would allow transfers from Android to iOS.
