Initially, the feature transfer WhatsApp chat history was made available for Samsung phones and now it’s available for all the phones that run the Android 12 operating system.
Currently, only Pixel phones have stable Android 12 but many other smartphone makers have rolled out Beta version of their own custom OS based on the latest Android.
Step 1: Connect your Apple iPhone and the Android smartphone using a USB-C to Lightning cable.
Step 2: After connecting both the devices, open the WhatsApp application on iPhone.
Step 3: In WhatsApp, go to the Settings > Chats and then tap on the “Move chats to Android” option.
Step 4: Now, when you are setting up your Android smartphone, you will be asked if you want to transfer the WhatsApp history.
Step 5: To start the transfer process, scan the QR code that is shown on the screen and the WhatsApp chat history will be transferred.
That’s it. Once the transfer process is completed, all your conversations, media files, and voice messages will be available on your new Android device.
Google has also confirmed that the Apple iPhone won’t be receiving any new WhatsApp messages while the transfer process is ongoing, so you shouldn’t lose anything in the switch.
