WhatsApp launches exciting new feature many have been waiting for

Published

WhatsApp is adding the ability to bring your chat history with you when you switch from iOS to Android.

The feature was announced during Samsung’s launch event today and will initially cover transfers from iOS to Samsung phones “in the coming weeks.”

Reports state that the tech giant declined to say when the feature might arrive for non-Samsung Android phones or when it’ll allow Android to iOS transfers.
