It is quite likely that at some point you have switched from an Android phone to an iPhone or even vice versa, causing many of those conversations that you had back in time to be lost in the change.
That is why the big technology companies are working so that we can transfer our conversation histories to new phones, and even if they change their operating system.
We already knew that WhatsApp was working on allowing us to transfer our conversations from Android to iOS with a new feature, and now we have new details thanks to the version 126.96.36.199 beta of the application.
As pointed out from wabetainfo, the feature that will allow us to transfer or migrate our WhatsApp chat from Android to iOS is almost ready in a process that will rely on an external application that you can download in the different application stores completely free of charge, and we are talking about Move to iOS.
As you can see in the screenshot, WhatsApp will first ask you for permission to import the conversation history before starting the process, and then it will ask you to keep the application open and the mobile device unlocked while the migration takes place.
WhatsApp already allows users to migrate their chat histories from iOS to Samsung phones since September, having later expanded this feature to support iOS chat transfers to Pixel phones and other Android 12 devices as well.
It is unknown when this new feature that will make life much easier will be available. to those users who switch from an Android phone to an iPhone and do not want to lose some conversations that you had back in time along the way.
