WabetaInfo, a company that provides the latest news and updates about WhatsApp has recently shared news about the chat migration feature.
“If you missed the news, @WhatsApp is working on a chat migration feature, so you can easily transfer your chats and messages between iOS and Android.”
Currently, there is no option available in the application to restore chat history when switching to a new device running on a different operating system. Many users have lost their chat history on switching to Whatsapp iOS from Android or vice-versa. So the chat migration feature will be beneficial for users migrating between Android and Whatsapp iOS.
