The new feature WhatsApp is about to roll out for iOS to Android is now available, beginning with Samsung phones. The iOS to Android conversation transfer function was introduced at the Galaxy Unpacked event last month, but it was only accessible for the event’s new foldable devices at the time.WhatsApp, on the other hand, has rolled out the conversation history transfer option. This will allow you to migrate WhatsApp chat easily and will be available to several Samsung phones – with a few limitations. WhatsApp users may move their account information, profile photographs, personal conversations, group chats, prior messages, media, and settings from an iPhone to a Samsung device using this function. WhatsApp users are not able to transmit their call records or visible name. This will allow you to migrate WhatsApp chat easily.
Users must have WhatsApp iOS 126.96.36.199 or higher on their previous iPhone device. Also, they should have WhatsApp Android 188.8.131.52 or higher on their new Samsung phone to use this functionality. WhatsApp users should have the same contact number as they had on their previous iPhone, and the Smartphone must be completely new. If it isn’t brand new, users will need to do a factory reset on their Samsung phones before they can begin transferring chats.
Most significantly, owners of Samsung devices will require a USB Type-C to Lightning connection to complete this transfer. Cable transmission also implies that migrated data does not move to cloud services, and WhatsApp does not have access to the data you have sent.
Migrate WhatsApp chat from iPhone to Samsung phone
To migrate WhatsApp chat history from an iPhone to a suitable Samsung phone, follow the easy steps shown below.
When the notifications pop, turn on the Samsung phone and connect it to the old iPhone with a USB Type-C to Lightning connection.
For setup, you can follow the procedure in the Samsung Smart Switch manual. When the notification pops, use your iPhone’s camera to scan the QR code that displays on the new Samsung phone.
Tap Start on the iPhone and wait for the procedure to finish.
Continue configuring the new Samsung phone.
Start WhatsApp when you get to the main screen and sign in with the same contact number you had on your old iPhone.
When the notification pops, tap Import and wait for the procedure to finish.
According to WhatsApp, the content will stay on the old iPhone unless you remove it or deactivate the WhatsApp app.
The procedure will be extended to additional Android handsets in the near future. In addition, the business is developing its own end-to-end encrypted cloud backup system, which should allow conversations to be transferred from Android to iPhone in the future.
