Finally! The one feature that everyone had been asking since years ago is “how can I transfer my WhatsApp chat history from Android to iOS?” or from iOS to Android – whatever, you get the idea. Today, WhatsApp has finally addressed this issue by introducing the WhatsApp Cross Platform feature.
This is not because Samsung struck a deal with WhatsApp – in extension, Facebook – but because there are more users that hop between Samsung and Apple phones. And since WhatsApp wants to retain the end-to-end encryption, it needs a deeper level of software integration between Apple and Samsung phones to make the transfer safe and secure.
While the WhatsApp chat history transfer feature will be available on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 first, it will eventually come to other Samsung devices that is running on Android 10 or higher in the coming weeks.

It’s great to see this feature become a reality while still retaining WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption. There will be no messages going through Facebook’s server while transferring the chat history!
