It is a request that has been present for a very long time among WhatsApp users. Improved data transfer from Android to iOS becomes a reality.

We’re adding to WhatsApp the ability to securely switch between phones and transfer your chat history, photos, videos, and voicemails between Android and iPhone while maintaining end-to-end encryption. This is a highly requested feature. We introduced the ability to switch from iPhone to Android last year, and now we’re adding Android to iPhone.
