Finally! WhatsApp allows easy transfer of chat history from iPhone to Android One of the most frustrating aspects of WhatsApp is its phone operating system lock-in. Currently, it is almost impossible to transfer chat history from Android's WhatsApp to iPhone and vice versa. This is finally changing, as WhatsApp introduced a streamlined data transfer.
The new feature resembles the one available in competitors, such as Signal, where two phones can be paired and messages are then transferred from one device to another. As WhatsApp doesn't use centralized messaging servers like Telegram, the messages can't be just "pulled from the cloud".

The new transfer feature is available now only for recently released new Samsung's foldable phones, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. Later, the new transfer method will be brought to all other Android devices, too.

Transfer WhatsApp messages from iPhone to Android




However, there's one problem with the new transfer feature: it only works from iPhone to Android, not the other way around.

New transfer feature will transfer all messages, voice messages, videos and images from iPhone's WhatsApp to Android's WhatsApp.
