The CEO of WhatsApp’s parent company, Meta, Mark Zuckerberg, revealed on his Facebook page that the firm has enabled Android-to-iPhone account transfers online.
More About The New Whatsapp Chat History Sharing Update
Users must have an Android 5 Lollipop or later handset with WhatsApp version 184.108.40.206 or above, as well as be on their way to a device with iOS 15.5 or later — for iPhones that Apple now supports, you’ll likely get a software update after initial boot that will bring you up to that level.
All of the magic happens in the Move to iOS app, as you would have guessed from previous information. Before continuing with the workflow, users must click a new checkbox for WhatsApp data on the Transfer Data screen.
After that, they’ll need to download WhatsApp v220.127.116.11 on their new iPhone and log in using the same account, i.e., the same phone number. Except for messages containing peer-to-peer payments, images, videos, and voice chats, the transfer procedure will bring users’ chat history with them. The call history will be saved.
It’s still a bummer that iOS-to-Android WhatsApp transfers only function on a select few handsets, but third-party services like Wondershare’s (full disclosure: link leads to a sponsored piece) can assist those switching to a Motorola or OnePlus device.
