Transferring WhatsApp chats from iPhone to Android is available via Pixel

announced Google said that the feature to transfer WhatsApp chat history to bring your messages from iPhone devices to Android is now available across all Pixel phones and it is available on the new smartphones that are launched with Android 12.

The feature was available for Samsung phones at the beginning of September for phones running Android 10 and above.

This feature makes switching from iOS to Android easier, as you don’t have to give up your message history, including any voice memos, photos, and videos.

And the process should be relatively simple, as long as you have an updated WhatsApp app on both your iPhone and Android phone and have a USB-C to Lightning cable.

Google says that while setting up your Android phone, you’re prompted to scan a QR code with your iPhone, allowing you to start the transfer process.

The search giant explains that your iPhone will not receive any WhatsApp messages while your messages are being transferred. So you shouldn’t lose anything while switching.

The company notes that smartphone manufacturers can add support for this feature when they update their phones to Android 12. So it’s possible that those with existing phones will be able to access it at some point.

The company says it is working with phone makers to make sure phones running Android 12 support the transfers.

The Android team notes how it was impossible to fetch certain types of data when switching from an iPhone.

Google says it has worked closely with the -owned messaging app. This is in order to facilitate the switch from iPhone to Android and ensure that your data remains protected throughout the transfer process. So no one else can access your WhatsApp information and files.

And the new operating system also allows you to transfer data better than iOS. This includes automatically matching and installing the same iOS apps from the Google Play Store.
