Switching to a new phone is exciting, but transferring data from one's old phonecan be an unpleasant experience when there is a risk of losing WhatsApp chat history.

What messes up the joy of getting a new phone is realising that you will not be able to access your old chats on your new device.


However, it seems that you may not have to worry much longer.

According to WABetaInfo, an upcoming Android update may solve this issue by introducing a feature that simplifies the transfer of chat history from an old phone to a new one.

Though specifics about the implementation are not yet available, this feature is still under the process of development.

It is important to note that while WhatsApp currently allows chat history transfer between iOS and Android devices, the process involves accessing a separate section and using a physical cable.

However, WABetaInfo suggests that the new feature "looks like a universal feature designed to transfer chat history across different platforms without relying on specific sections or methods."

Additionally, the report noted that this feature is currently in the works for Android.

The upcoming changes might aim to potentially enhance the migration process universal across different platforms.

Furthermore, details about how this universal feature operates are still awaited, and additional information will likely be revealed as the development progresses in the future.
