It is now possible to Transfer WhatsApp chat data from iPhone to Android phone. In August, when Samsung introduced new foldable phones, WhatsApp announced the introduction of a service to transfer chat history from iOS devices to Android phones.
This feature is now officially available to users and can be used initially on Samsung phones running the Android 10 or 11 operating system.
That is, if you have a Samsung phone running on Android 10 or 11 and want to transfer your chat history from an iPhone, you can do so.
All you have to do is install the WhatsApp on a Samsung phone running on Android 10 or 11, after which an option will appear.
This option will allow you to transfer chats securely from an iPhone and will require a USC to Lightning cable.
In this transfer, account information, profile photo, individual chats, group chats, chat history, media (voice messages, photos and videos) and settings will all be transferred from one phone to another.
But call history and display name will not be part of the chat transfer.

According to WhatsApp, this tool will gradually be available to all phones working on Android and iOS.
Announcing the feature in August, the company said the tool was difficult to implement because all messages are end-to-end encrypted and stored on the device.

This new feature will also be useful for multi-device support as this chat migration tool will allow users to connect multiple devices under one account.
