Android and iOS have managed to become the two main mobile platforms in the market. While in Android the ecosystem is open and switching between brands is an easy task, iOS is more closed to Apple products and services.
While moving from one ecosystem to another isn’t overly complicated, sometimes there are little details that keep us from deciding whether to upgrade to iPhone or leave iPhone and go to one of the Android brands. WhatsApp is usually one of the biggest hurdles when it comes to making the transition, but it looks like the app is going to put an end to that.
WhatsApp will make it easier to switch from Android to iOS and vice versa
Backups of WhatsApp conversations aren’t exactly new, and they’ve been available to everyone for years. However, they have a small drawback, namely that they are limited to working with a single operating system.
This means that if you are using WhatsApp on an Android and make the backup of your chats when you switch to another Android mobile, you can restore it, but if for some reason you decide to switch to iPhone, you will have to start over and lose your conversations.
This is a disadvantage which, in the case of wanting to hold your conversations, limits your choice. WhatsApp seems like it would finally be aware of this and work on an official tool to migrate your data between any of the two major operating systems.
This was revealed by WABetaInfo with the following screenshot indicating that WhatsApp is already working on this feature. The capture would come from the iOS app to migrate your chats to Android, but on Android we would also have an option to migrate chats to Android.
This is currently a feature in development and cannot be activated, so it is still not available at this time. As the months go by, he should appear in beta and later in the stable, so we will remain vigilant.
