If you are going to change your mobile and operating system, WhatsApp now allows you to import chats and contacts between Android and iOS without problem
WhatsApp is working on importing the chat history of its messaging application on Android devices from other iOS terminals, three weeks after it became known that the application had started working on the migration of chats between both platforms.
The company first worked on creating a tool to export chats from iOS to Android, but WABetaInfo reported then that content migration would be done bilaterally between the two platforms.
New information from WABetaInfo obtained from the beta version of WhatsApp update 18.104.22.168 on Android indicates that the company is now working on the process of importing chats to Android.
The aforementioned portal has shared an image showing a WhatsApp interface on Android with the text “importing the chat history.” At the top it includes a circle as a marker of the progress of the transfer process. And at the bottom, the ‘retry’ button.
The portal specialized in WhatsApp has indicated that to store the information during the process “it is probable” that they will use Google Drive, and that, after completing this import tool, WhatsApp will develop the Android export tool and the iOS import tool.
The chat history migration tool is still under development and will be available in the future for Android and iOS devices. Currently, there are other services to carry out this process, but they are not official and may lead to violations of the Terms of Service, according to WhatsApp.
