WhatsApp plans chat history transfer

WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will make it easier to transfer your chat history to a different platform when changing your smartphone, according to a report by WaBetaInfo.

The new option will be useful for those who are looking to migrate from Android to iOS devices, and vice versa, reports Indian Express.

Currently, WhatsApp does not offer any native option to restore chat history when switching to a new device, which is running on a different operating system.  The company is soon expected to launch the Chat History Migration tool to solve issue.

As of now, the messaging service lets you change your phone number without losing any chats and even transfer chat history. The feature is only works when switching between two iPhones or Android phones.
