Google announced that you can now easily migrate your WhatsApp chats from iOS to your Pixel and Android 12 smartphones.
Google last week announced that it is making it possible to migrate WhatsApp’s chat history from iPhones to Android 12 smartphones and all new Pixel phones.
The feature, which was already supported on all Samsung Galaxy devices, will also soon be made available from the factory on new smartphones launched with Android 12.
WhatsApp introduced the possibility to migrate chats from iOS to Android this summer, with a relatively simple process. With the use of a USB-C to Lightning cable, WhatsApp will prompt the scan of a QR code on the iPhone and start the transfer process between the two devices.
Google notes that not to lose any messages in the transfer, the iOS device will not be able to receive any new WhatsApp messages during the migration process.
The company has also worked closely with the team at WhatsApp to ensure that the content being transferred remains safe throughout the process.
Finally, according to the announcement, Google is working with phone manufacturers to make the feature available out of the box on all devices issued on Android 12.
At the same time, users of Android devices updating their systems to Android 12 may soon gain access to the feature, according to Google.
