WhatsApp Reportedly Testing Chat History Migration Between Android and iOS Devices

The chat history migration feature is said to be part of WhatsApp’s multi-device functionalities.

WhatsApp is testing another new feature that will allow user to migrate their chats history among Android and iOS devices, as per another report. WhatsApp had recently said that third-party apps that claim to help users migrate chat history across the two platforms violate its Terms of Service. According to an earlier report, WhatsApp could also soon introduce a feature that will not require users to keep their phones connected when using WhatsApp Web.

According to a report by WABetaInfo, a platform that tests WhatsApp features in beta and publishes information about them, another chat history migration feature will be rolled out ‘in a future update’. Its estimated time of arrival, however, is not known. The report includes a screenshot of WhatsApp for iOS that shows a popup asking to upgrade the app to the latest version in order to move chat history to another device running WhatsApp for Android. The report says that the feature will also allow users to move chat history from Android to iOS.

As indicated by the report, when a WhatsApp user trying to connect the device having a different operating system, the application need to be updated to the most recent version available on the App Store “in order to avoid any compatibility error with the Android version”.

The chat history migration feature is a part of the multi-device functionalities that WhatsApp is working away at for quite a while. In Fact, WABetaInfo firstly reported about a WhatsApp include being developed that would sync chat history across stages a year ago.

Recently, WABetaInfo also shared WhatsApp Web beta screen captures that show that users could before long use WhatsApp Web application without keep their phone connected with the Internet. The feature was before seen on Android and now is reported for to be under development on in iOS too.
