Despite all the criticism, WhatsApp is the backbone of their smartphone for many. They refrain from changing devices or operating systems so as not to lose their conversations. WhatsApp wants help here.
Whatsapp supports anyone who changes the mobile operating system. When switching from iOS to Android, a new function can now be used that can transfer chat logs directly from device to device. The company announced.
Initially, the new functionality is only available on Samsung phones running Android 10 and the installed Smart Switch app, but according to the Facebook subsidiary, it will also soon be available on other Android devices. A USB-C to Lightning cable is required to connect smartphones.
It is not certain whether it is possible to transfer chat history in reverse, that is, from Android to iOS. However, Whatsapp does offer similar hints: “In the future we want to give more people the opportunity to have their conversations easily and securely with them when switching to the operating system of their choice.”
