New WhatsApp feature incoming

As suggested by a WABetaInfo, WhatsApp will soon let people transfer chat history from Android to iOS and iOS to Android. Also Read – WhatsApp scam: This ‘free Jio Rs 555 plan’ message is fake, don’t fall for it

It is revealed that for the feature to work you will “always” have to update the WhatsApp on both Android and iOS (while linking the devices) so that there aren’t any compatibility issues. This will allow you to easily transfer your WhatsApp chats.

The feature will act as a sigh of relief for this it is something a person would want while switching from Android to iOS or vice versa.

Currently, there isn’t any direct way of doing so. Although a couple apps claim the easy chat history migration between WhatsApp for Android and iOS, they tend to violate the messaging app’s terms of service.

Multi-device support in tow too

The ability to easily transfer WhatsApp chats between Android and iOS will be an extension to the highly-rumoured multi-device support, which will allow you to use WhatsApp on multiple devices at the same time.

Multi-device support is expected to change the WhatsApp experience fully. It is also likely to allow for the offline use of WhatsApp Web.

However, there isn’t any word on how exactly the feature will work and when it will be available for all. We are still awaiting the multi-device support, so there are high chances the chat migration feature will launch alongside.

We will let you know what WhatsApp has in store for us. Hence, stay tuned.
