Have you ever struggled using Meta's WhatsApp on your new phone because you were unable to access the chats from your old one?

Worry no more because the instant messaging app may be working on a feature that will take this stress away from you.


According to WABetaInfo, the new Android update will make it easier for users to transfer the chat history from their old phones to their new one.

The outlet highlighted that there are still no details available about the implementation for this feature as it is still under the process of development.

It is worth noting that WhatsApp currently supports migrating chat history between iOS and Android devices, but it requires users to access a separate section and use a physical cable to complete the process.

However, WABetaInfo suggests that the new feature "looks like a universal feature designed to transfer chat history across different platforms without relying on specific sections or methods."

Additionally, the report noted that this feature is currently in the works for Android.

The upcoming feature might aim to potentially enhance the migration process universal across different platforms.

Furthermore, details about how this universal feature operates are still awaited, and additional information will likely be revealed as the development progresses in the future.
