Some past reports highlighted that WhatsApp will bring a Android to iOS chat transfer feature as well. No concrete details have been revealed by the Facebook owned instant messaging platform on these features yet.
Multi-device support coming soon
WhatsApp and Facebook head recently announced to release multi-device support for both Android and iOS users out there. The feature is being currently being tested with beta users and allows to login to any device without the need for the primary phone.
As the name suggests, this feature will let users use their WhatsApp account in more than one device at a time. This will mainly help users who are working from home and using WhatsApp on their mobile phone as well as laptop or tablet at the same time. Currently, the platform allows to use an account only on one mobile device and a laptop/PC/tablet at the same time.
