WhatsApp launches its expected tool to pass chat histories between mobile

WhatsApp has announced the full transfer of the chat history between Android and iOS, a tool that will allow users to keep their messages, photos and voice notes when changing to a new phone with different operating system.

Whatsapp has been working on the migration of the content of the chat history of the same user between devices with IOS and Android operating system, or vice versa. A function that until now was not possible and that it forced to go to unofficial applications.

The delay is due to the problems that the company has encountered to develop this function, according to the particularities of the platform. Specifically, they have explained that while other similar services based their messaging in the cloud, whatsapp messages have end-to-end encryption by default and stored on the device itself.

"This means that bringing your history with you between platforms requires additional work by whatsapp and manufacturers of operating systems and devices to create a secure and reliable way, pointing.

The new tool will allow you to migrate the entire chat history, with your messages, voice notes and photographs, between Android and iOS, or between iOS and Android, and will be available for all users of 'smartphones', although progressively.

First it will be distributed for Android devices, specifically, for the new Galaxy Folding Telephones that Samsung has presented this Wednesday during its 'Galaxy Unpacked' event. This means that users can transfer their chat history from iOS with SMART SWITCH help.

The tool will arrive in the coming weeks, and will be compatible in a first moment with a Samsung device that has Android 10 or a higher version installed. Later you can make migration to iOS from Android.
