You can now take your WhatsApp chats with you wherever you go with the updated feature. App developers have announced that the popular messaging app will be expanding its transfers from Android devices to iOS devices. This means iOS users can now export their conversations into a Move file to upload to an iPhone or iPad instead of only sending them via email.
All of your chats and attachments from one account are stored as a ZIP archive in the Move file. As a result, you can’t mix contacts from different addresses in the same chat log – they should be kept separate.
You shouldn’t hold your breath for a specific release date outside of “in the coming weeks”. Despite that, the company has promised iOS features for upcoming updates, so we might see this one fairly soon.
A new iOS-to-Android transfer feature, as well as new editing options, are exciting for WhatsApp users. Even if you don’t it have on your mobile, download Whatsapp today and enjoy its seamless features.
According to WABetaInfo’s tweet, these updates will only be available for Android users running version 12 of the operating system; however, Head Office’s Will Cathcart confirmed their arrival through an announcement video where he described some of these updates, including sending sensitive images without first storing them on the device (you’ll need internet access to use this feature).
You can expect the iOS WhatsApp update to be available by the end of August or the beginning of September.
