Previously, transferring WhatsApp data to other large mobile operating systems existed only at the level of promise. However, from now on, it will gradually become available.

While end-to-end encryption is a very important and easy-to-use feature of WhatsApp, it can be a hassle if someone switches platforms and moves their chat history from iOS to Android (or vice versa). The problem is that the chats are stored on the device and not in the cloud, precisely because of the encryption.

Fortunately, the transfer can be resolved, and it was discovered as early as April that WhatsApp specialists, now owned by Facebook, are also working on this.

And at Samsung’s Unpacked event in a few days, an official announcement has already been made: after the tests, the transfer may begin immediately, but for the time being with some restrictions. Although the feature is – in principle – two-way, it is currently only available from iOS to Android, and within it to Samsung smartphones. The requirement is that your phone is running Android 10 or later. The good news is that not only chats, but also past videos and voice messages can be transferred.
