While details on how it will aren’t fully available, we expect it to be an option that will appear when a user changes to Android or iOS. Before people can start using the app on their new phones, they can get all their chats in a jiffy. To recall, the feature was spotted previously in the app’s beta version.
Sandeep Paruchuri, product manager at WhatsApp, in a statement, said, “Your WhatsApp messages belong to you. That’s why they are stored on your phone by default, and not accessible in the cloud-like many other messaging services. We’re excited for the first time to make it easy for people to securely transfer their WhatsApp history from one operating system to another. This has been one of our most requested features from users for years and we worked together with operating systems and device manufacturers to solve it.”
The feature will be available on both Android and iOS devices to make things smoother for both parties. However, Android users will get a head start as the functionality will be available for them initially. The latest Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3 will be the first ones to get it. Following this, it will reach iOS users for them to move chats from or to Android.
We will reveal more details on the same once they are out.
