Today, WhatsApp has finally released a new beta update through Google Play Beta Program that brings the chat migration feature with version 184.108.40.206.
Additionally, WABetaInfo also confirmed that the development work of this feature has also begun on Android because until now, in fact, it had only been identified on iOS.
Let’s take a look at the screenshot:
Following the screenshot, WhatsApp for Android is working on the procedure to import your chat history. At the moment the method used to migrate the chat history is not known, but it’s likely they will use Google Drive to temporarily store the chat history to import to WhatsApp for Android.
Probably, when the developers complete the feature to export chats from iOS to import to Android, they’re going to develop a chat history export for Android, in order to import it to iOS.
Currently, this feature is under development. There is no information on when this tool should be ready and will be available in a future update for iOS and Android.
