Whatsapp is currently testing a brand new feature for all its Android devices that will help its users to migrate all their chat histories between iOS devices and Android. This news was according to the WABetaInfo. In the beginning, the chat history migration feature was being tested reportedly for iOS. According to the Whatsapp beta update, it indicates that the company has finally started to develop the same feature on Android devices.
It is important to note down that Facebook owns Whatsapp. Whatsapp has reportedly said that the third party’s applications will claim to help its users migrate all the history of the chat across the two different platforms violating the Terms of Service.
According to one report by WABetaInfo, one of the platforms is responsible for testing the features of Whatsapp in beta, and it also publishes information about them. Whatsapp beta for the updated screenshot for Android 188.8.131.52 indicates that the company is working on the matter so as to import the history of the chat. In Whatsapp for iOS, it was be9ng seen working on the process of export. On the other hand, WABetainfo also said that it is still not clear that the method will be used for the transfer of the cross-device data. But it is more likely that they will use Google Drive to momentarily store the history of the chat to import in Whatsapp for Android.
The platform is also seen mentioning that when there will be the completion of the export chats feature of the Whatsapp from the iOS to import to Android, it will probably start to develop the export history of the chat for Android as an import for the iOS. The feature of the Whatsapp chat history migration is regarded as part of the multi-device functionalities. WABetaInfo is seen to report in the last year about one feature that would probably sync the history of the chat across different platforms last year.
According to the recent reports of the WABetaInfo, Whatsapp is testing an option of 24 hours for disappearing the messages on iOS, Android and desktop/Web. This is also regarded as an additional available option that enables the users to set a seven-day message disappearing. This option is available to users where they can disable/enable disappearing messages for group and personal chats.
