You can now transfer WhatsApp data from your Android phone to iPhone

WhatsApp can now allow you to transfer app data directly from an Android phone into an iPhone. Users can now export chat history as well as media files or voice conversations to and from Android to iPhone through an app called the Move from Android to iOS app. This new function is available in beta now and will be accessible to everyone users on the chat app within the next week.

WhatsApp already has a feature for users to transfer the data via iPhone and Android. This feature was initially available only on Samsung phones, but it was later released to other devices. The new approach will work opposite way and permit Android users the option to change to iPhone as well as the WhatsApp history.

Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement on Facebook. “This is a popular feature. We introduced the change from Android to iPhone in the last year and  now we are adding the Android->iPhone switch as well.”

According to WhatsApp transfer can only be used on factory reset or brand new iPhones. This is the same limitation that it has to transfer between iPhone from iPhone to Android.

Users must also run Android 5 or greater for their Android devices, and iOS15.5 and up for their iPhones.
