WhatsApp is looking to simplify the process of moving from an iPhone to an Android phone. A feature that’s in the works will make it possible to backup chats on one platform and then restore them on another.
Taking the decision to switch allegiances can be a tough one, particularly when it comes to mobile platforms. You may have committed to taking the plunge, switching from iOS to Android, but there are major considerations – not least of which is making sure that you have all of the apps and data you need.

Banned from WhatsApp? There’s a new appeals process on the way
A future migration feature addresses one of the biggest shortcomings of WhatsApp’s backup capabilities. We already knew that it is going to be possible to migrate from Android to iOS in taking all of your WhatsApp chats with you, and while it would have been extremely surprising for the reverse to not also have been implemented, now we have confirmation that this option is on the way.

Make the switch
Rather than being an option that’s built into the WhatsApp app directly, the cross-platform migration tool looks to be part of a separate Switch to Android app which will be available from the App Store soon. This is very similar to the Move to iOS app that can be found in the Play Store.
