In that article we have published a screenshot from iOS. Today, thanks to the 188.8.131.52 Android beta update, we have discovered that WhatsApp is finally starting to develop the same feature on Android!
On WhatsApp for iOS, WhatsApp is currently working on the export process. On Android, as you can see in the screenshot, they are working on the procedure to import your chat history. At the moment the method used to migrate the chat history is unknown, but it’s likely they will use Google Drive to momentarily store the chat history to import to WhatsApp for Android. Probably, when they will complete the feature to export chats from iOS to import to Android, they’re going to develop a chat history export for Android, in order to import it to iOS.
The feature is under development and it will be available in a future update for iOS and Android. Stay tuned to discover more!
