WhatsApp started testing a new feature of iOS to Android chat migration for specific users. This feature is useful for iPhone users who want to switch to Android phones. iPhone users can check for this in WhatsApp Settings –>> Chat. If this feature is available for users, they will see the “Move Chats to Android” option. This feature was announced at the Samsung Unpacked event and initially, the iPhone users can only migrate WhatsApp chat to Samsung smartphones like Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. For now, this feature is in beta testing and it will be available to all iPhone users soon.
