WhatsApp Messenger, or WhatsApp for short, is a free American cross-platform centralized messaging and Voice over IP (VoIP) service owned by Facebook, Inc… It allows users to send text and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, user locations, and other content. The WhatsApp client application can run on a mobile device, but it can also be accessed from a desktop computer, as long as the user’s mobile device remains connected to the Internet while using the desktop application. This service requires a mobile phone number to register. In January 2018, WhatsApp launched an independent business application for small business owners, called WhatsApp Business, which allows businesses to use a standard WhatsApp client to communicate with customers.
According to reports, WhatsApp is developing a method that allows users to transfer their chat history from iOS to Android. This feature can solve one of the biggest annoyances of the messaging service owned by Facebook, that is, the official cannot transfer message backups between iPhone and Android, and can only transfer between phones running the same operating system. Since at least April, detailed information about the features under development has appeared in the WhatsApp software.
The screenshot shared by WABetaInfo shows the new option “Move chat to Android” in WhatsApp’s iOS app. The second screenshot shows a screen that requires the user to keep the iPhone unlocked and open WhatsApp during the transfer. So far, most of the tests point to the iOS to Android porting function, but WABetaInfo previously reported that the reverse is also possible. Thank you for recently discovering the “Switch to Android” application to migrate WhatsApp chat history. These screenshots from iOS to Android show how the process works. This feature is under development and will be provided in a future update.
According to XDA Developers, the new WhatsApp transfer tool may be part of a new “switch to Android” iOS application that Google is developing. Just like Apple’s “Move to iOS” application that helps users migrate from Android to iOS, Switch to Android makes it easier to migrate to Google’s operating system. According to the XDA developers, the code in the Google app indicates that it can be integrated with WhatsApp’s unpublished transfer tool. Through a phone call. In addition to transferring chat records between platforms, WABetaInfo also reported that WhatsApp is developing a method to transfer chat records between different phone numbers. It is not clear when any of these functions will be widely available.
