|Name of the feature?||Chat History Migration|
|Availability?||In a future update.|
|I’ve the same version but I don’t see this news, why?||WhatsApp is developing the feature, and it will be released in a future update when it’s ready. There is no ETA.|
Today we are discussing something really interesting about multi device. Even if it doesn’t seem like that, WhatsApp is giving a lot of priority for this feature, that will allow to use your WhatsApp account on multiple devices at the same time. The development of the feature takes a long time because it will totally change your experience on WhatsApp, and a lot of things have been rewritten in order to be compatible with multi device.
The feature will allow WhatsApp Web (including Portal) to be used without an Internet connection on your device, at first. In a future update, WhatsApp will allow to link other iOS and Android mobile devices.
But… what happens when the user tries to link an Android device, if he is using an iPhone? At the moment there are some tools around the web that might allow the chat history migration, but they aren’t really recommendend and, as for modified WhatsApp versions, they aren’t allowed because they violate the Terms of Service:

Today WABetaInfo is happy to announce that a future update for iOS and Android will enable the possibility to migrate your chat history!
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp will allow to migrate your chat history from WhatsApp for iOS to WhatsApp for Android. It is obvious that WhatsApp will also allow the opposite way. When the user tries to link a device having a different operating system to his WhatsApp account, it’s always needed to update to the latest WhatsApp update available on the App Store or TestFlight, in order to avoid any compatibility error with the Android version.
Unfortunately there is no date available for the release, but stay tuned to discover more new features and announcements!
