WhatsApp will allow users to transfer their chats between iOS and Android

WhatsApp seeks to provide the multi-device feature as soon as possible for its users to enable them to use the application on multiple devices at the same time without the need for their phone to be connected to the Internet, and while the company continues to work on developing this feature, new leaks appear from time to time that show the extent of the development progress process gives us an initial picture of how the multi-device feature will become when it is available to the public, and This time, the famous WABetaINFO revealed what will happen when an iPhone user connects his device to an Android device to use WhatsApp on both of them at the same time.

At present, when a user switches from iPhone to Android, he is forced to abandon all his conversations because WhatsApp on iPhone backs up conversations to iCloud while he performs this process to Google Drive on Android, and since there is no link between iCloud and Google Drive, there is no official way to transfer conversations between these two different platforms, and therefore some users resort to using third-party applications to transfer their conversations from iPhone to Android, and this is what WhatsApp confirms that it violates their terms of service and exposes their accounts to suspension or ban.

To solve this problem, WhatsApp is now developing an original transfer method that enables users to transfer their conversations from one platform to another directly from the application settings without the need to use any other additional application to do this process as part of the multi-device feature.

Once you try to link your account with a phone running a different operating system, WhatsApp will suggest you transfer all your conversations from your iPhone to an Android device or vice versa, and the app will also ask you to update WhatsApp to the latest available version to avoid any error that might happen during the migration process.

This new feature is still under development, and there is no specific time to arrive when it is available to either beta testers or the public.  Is this new feature important to you? And are you waiting for it impatiently like me? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
