WhatsApp: you will soon be able to transfer your conversations from iOS to Android

    Even though WhatsApp is one of the most popular cross-platform messaging apps in the world, it is still difficult for users to transfer their chat history between iOS and Android.

    So far, to transfer cats WhatsApp from iOS to Android, some users used obscure third-party applications which could pose security problems. However, that may soon change, according to information unearthed by XDA Developers in the latest version of Android's “Data Restore Tool”.

    Yesterday we mentioned that Google is preparing a “Switch to Android” application, which could facilitate data migration from an iPhone. While it would soon be possible to transfer photos, videos, contacts and applications from an iPhone to an Android smartphone, it could also finally be the case of your WhatsApp conversations.

    WhatsApp could allow data migration from iOS to Android

    The latest update of the “Data Restore Tool” application contains references to copying WhatsApp chats and history from iPhone to Android phone in its code. On some lines of code, we can read in particular ” Scan the QR code with your iPhone to open WhatsApp, then tap Start », « Keep your iPhone unlocked and WhatsApp open ” or ” Having trouble scanning? On your iPhone, open WhatsApp, then go to Settings> Chats> Move chats to Android ».

    So there is no longer any doubt that WhatsApp is working on a tool to easily migrate between iOS and Android. We imagine that Facebook's messaging service will also allow Android users to transfer their data to iOS smartphones. The arrival of such a feature could allow users to be less attached to a single operating system.

    WABetaInfo has managed to spot the transfer options under development, which means we may not have to wait long before we can use this long-awaited new feature. From the screenshots, the process might involve plugging the iPhone into a PC with a cable. The user is prompted to leave WhatsApp open and the iPhone unlocked while the transfer takes place.
