According to a new report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp develops one of the most anticipated features because it can finally transfer your chat history from iOS to Android. This is meant to solve one of the major issues between the two platforms, where it is not officially possible backup messages on phones with different operating systems and is only available if it is the same.
This option has been in development since at least April, as documented by XDADevelopers, which shows screenshots of the iOS application with the legend “Move Chats to Android”, but at the time it was not known how it would work .
thank you @xdadevelopers for your recent discovery about the “Switch to Android” app, to migrate WhatsApp chat history from WhatsApp from iOS to Android. 🤩
These screenshots show how the process works. This feature is under development and it will be available in a future update. https://t.co/FmZbXi33L2 pic.twitter.com/w7GiCUHSuS

Fan April already knew that WhatsApp was working on a feature to migrate the chat history between iOS and Android, and at the beginning of July we had an update of this tool, where a video showed that it was necessary to use a cable and not close the accounts of both smartphones while the process was completed.
In the WABetaInfo screenshots we would have the option “Move chats to Android” where the process for transferring the chats is displayed, which would also come in reverse, that is, from Android to iOS.
A similar tool already existed
Although iOS has the odd tool to migrate your Android data to this operating system, users who have the experience to use it know that it only works in theory because, in addition to taking years in the transfer process, it makes mistakes and the user decides to do not do it and start a new life on a new smartphone.
Another unfortunate event was losing all your valuable information (including your valuable stickers) due to the incompatibility of the platforms, but from what we shared earlier, migrating between the various operating systems will no longer be an impossible practice.
