When a user moves from Android to iOS or vice versa, one of the biggest issues they face is transferring their chat history between platforms. Sure, there are softwares that can do it for you, but there’s still the possibility of losing your privacy because the app can read all of your conversations. This has been a long-requested update from WhatsApp, and it appears that it has finally been implemented.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp would enable users to move their chats between native platforms in a future update, making switching simpler. This functionality would complement the multi-device support. Multi-device support for WhatsApp, for those who are ignorant, is a feature that is currently under progress.
With multi-user support, WhatsApp Web (including Portal) would be able to be accessed without an Internet connection on your device for the time being. WhatsApp would enable users to connect other iOS and Android devices in the future. When an iOS user attempts to connect an Android phone, however, the chat migration function kicks in.
There’s no word about when the feature will be available, but it’s very likely that it’ll come alongside the multi-device feature.
“You’ll be able to answer calls and updates for a limited period, but you won’t be able to read or write messages from the computer.” You now have the option of accepting the latest privacy policies or downloading your chat history and switching to another messaging program.
