WhatsApp Can Transfer Data between iOS and Android

After several weeks of gossip, WhatsApp finally allowed the message recording and content transfer between Android and iOS appliances. This feature is publicly announced at the Samsung Unpacked event.

To quote GSMArena, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 will be the first devices to take advantage of this feature related to the transfer from an iOS device to a new folder display device.

This option will be available incrementally on Samsung devices running Android 10 or later and will be available on other Android and iPhone appliances in the coming weeks.

WhatsApp has not scheduled the availability of this new option on the service user's appliance, but Samsung is expected to have exclusive rights to this option to convince the iPhone user to switch to Samsung.

In addition, WhatsApp has not shared information about when this feature is available and when Android users can send data to iPhone. If your iOS and Android devices are physically connected to the Lightning via a USB-C cable, you can send a conversation.

This is one of the most convenient ways for users to use it and is available on all the latest iPhone. Users cannot transfer data between platforms over the Internet.

You cannot merge these backups when you use multiple cloud services to back up chat history, images, and voice messages.

Instead, the transferred data overwrites and deletes the backup stored on one of the platforms of the device after the user has backed up again.

Since it was released more than a decade ago, WhatsApp has become one of the most popular instant messaging apps in the world. Since then, apps have always been limited to one instance on one device.

Changing the phone means that users need to back up their messages, photos, chats, and voice notes to the local storage so they can save them back to the new device, but the data cannot be transferred between operating systems.
