At the moment, your WhatsApp chat history is linked to your phone number, but a new beta feature may eventually enable users to migrate their conversations to a new number if they decide to make any changes.
Bloodhound WABetaInfo WhatsApp has spied the feature in testing iOS and Android apps. The screenshot suggests that the potential update will enable users to transfer their history to a different platform; If they decide to move between two major mobile operating systems.
The site has seen a Transfer Chat to Android option, which will be available when people link their new Android phones to their WhatsApp account. The report also stated that the facility would also be transferred to all videos, images and documents associated with the account.
Currently, even if you have backed up everything up to iCloud or Google Drive, you are still out of luck if you want to move from the best Android phone to the best iPhone and take your chat with you.
The ability to bring chat to a different phone number can also be a big boost for some, although the need to change the number has lessened these days. Now if you switch to another number, WhatsApp will start everything again and you will not be able to chat with anyone.
“The process of changing your phone number will begin automatically before you start migrating your chat history,” says WABetaInfo.
