But that will soon change.

According to tipster WABetainfo , WhatsApp is currently working on the ability to import chat history from an Android smartphone to an iPhone to ensure users don’t have to worry about losing all their previous chats when they switch to iOS.

However, it is worth noting that in order to transfer chats from Android to iOS, you need to install an app called “Move to iOS” on your Android smartphone.

The feature is currently in development phase and will be available to beta testers first. Unfortunately, the tipster has nothing to say about when the feature will be available to beta testers.
