Now WhatsApp users will be able to transfer messenger data when switching from the Android operating system to iOS.
“Report” informs that “XDA-developers” portal published information about this. Last year, such a function was created for “Samsung” users.
The innovation allows you to transfer account information, profile picture, private and group chats, chat history, media files and settings from one operating system to another. However, call history and account display name are not copied.
It is noted that the user must have a smartphone with at least “Android 5.0” or “iOS 15.5” operating system. Also, you need to install WhatsApp version 220.127.116.11 or higher on Android and WhatsApp version 18.104.22.168 or higher on iOS.
If the user switches from an Android smartphone to an iPhone, the first one must have the iOS Transfer app installed, and the iPhone must be factory reset or brand new. In addition, both devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
