One of the problems with using iOS and migrating to Android is that if you use WhatsApp heavily, you won’t be able to export and import your chat history without having to pay and use third-party tools, something that’s actually against WhatsApp’s policy. However, that could change soon.
We had previously reported that WhatsApp was found to be working on a new feature that would allow iOS users to export their chats, but what good are exported chats if you can’t import them, right? Now according to WABetaInfo, the latest version of the beta for Android has revealed that WhatsApp has included a new chat import feature.
Presumably this is an extension of the previous report where iOS users could export their chats, maybe as an external file, and then they can load this file on their Android devices and import it through WhatsApp. However, don’t expect to see it so soon. According to the report, apparently this feature is expected to only become available once WhatsApp’s multi-device feature has been released.
For those unfamiliar, WhatsApp is said to be working on a multi-device feature that lets you use WhatsApp on multiple devices at once, not just on your phone and PC. There is also no word on when this feature could be released, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
