WhatsApp users who convert from an Android phone to an iPhone may now save their message history. Until now, WhatsApp data could only be transferred in the opposite manner — from an iPhone to Google’s Android platform – and this feature was only implemented last year. Apple has upgraded its Move To iOS software, which can be downloaded to Android phones, to securely transfer WhatsApp data. The tool is currently used to transmit other phone data such as contact information, images, and videos.

WhatsApp said the transfer will take place while remaining fully encrypted, and that it will begin to roll out on Tuesday but will take about a week to reach all users. Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive of Meta – of which WhatsApp is a part – said: “We’re adding to WhatsApp the ability to securely switch between phones and transfer your chat history, photos, videos and voice messages between Android and iPhone while maintaining end-to-end encryption. “This is a top requested feature. We launched the ability to switch from iPhone to Android last year, and now adding Android to iPhone as well.”
