WhatsApp is reportedly working on a feature to help transfer chats from iPhone to Android phone. However, the latest report suggests that the instant messaging platform has been working on the chats transfer feature since April this year. The feature reportedly has been showing in WhatsApp’s software since a few months now.
WhatsApp chat transfer feature coming soon
WABetaInfo has also shared a screenshot displaying how the feature will work once released. The screenshots show that it will be called “Move chats to Android”. The option will be added individually to WhatsApp’s iOS app.
The Facebook owned messaging platform has not revealed any details about the iOS to Android chat transfer feature yet. Since the feature is under development, we can expect it to first release for iOS beta users and then followed by stable build. The timeline of the release is still unknown, so let’s wait for the platform to provide official details.

While the latest report shows chat transfer feature between iOS and Android, previous reports revealed vis-à-vis. Some past reports highlighted that WhatsApp will bring a Android to iOS chat transfer feature as well. No concrete details have been reveal by the Facebook own instant messaging platform on these features yet.
Multi-device support coming soon
WhatsApp and Facebook head recently introduced to release multi-device support for both Android and iOS users out there. The feature is being currently being tested with beta users and allows to login to any device without the need for the primary phone.
As the name suggests, this feature will let users use their WhatsApp account in more than one device at a time. This will mainly help users who are working from home and using WhatsApp on their mobile phone as well as laptop or tablet at the same time. Currently, the platform allows to use an account only on one mobile device and a laptop/PC/tablet at the same time.
