All new smartphones with Android 12 support transferring chats and media to WhatsApp from iPhone

Published

For several weeks now, WhatsApp users have been able to transfer their message history from iPhone to Samsung smartphones, and now this feature has also appeared on Google Pixel smartphones.

What’s more, Google has stated that any new phone that runs Android 12 will support this feature.

Transferring message history works quite simply. All you need is a Lightning to USB-C cable. You connect your Android smartphone to your iPhone using it, and then scan the QR code on your iPhone to launch WhatsApp and transfer all your conversations, media, and other data to your Android smartphone.

Data is transferred securely between phones. Google says it is working closely with WhatsApp to provide security. No one else will ever be able to access your information and files. The chat history will simply be copied from the iPhone to the Pixel, and during the transfer, the iPhone will no longer be able to receive new messages.

The feature is expected to be available on previously released smartphones from other manufacturers as soon as the Android 12 update is released.
