WhatsApp finally lets users transfer their entire chat history from Android to iOS and vice versa. After years of requests, beta testing, and limited smartphone model compatibility, the company is rolling out this feature to all users.

Here’s what you need to know to migrate your chat from Android to iOS and vice versa:

  • Android OS Lollipop, SDK 21 or above, or Android 5 or above installed on your Android device
  • iOS 15.5 or above installed on your iPhone
  • Move to iOS app installed on your Android phone
  • WhatsApp iOS version 2.22.10.70 or above on your new device
  • WhatsApp Android version 2.22.7.74 or above on your old device
  • Use the same phone number as your old phone on your new device
  • Your iPhone must be factory new or reset to factory settings to pair with the Move to iOS app and move data from your Android phone
  • Both of your devices must be connected to a power source
  • Both of your devices need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network or you’ll need to connect your Android device to your iPhone’s hotspot

How to migrate your WhatsApp chat history from Android to iPhone
  1. Open the Move to iOS app on your Android phone and follow the on-screen prompts.
  2. A code will be displayed on your iPhone. When prompted, enter the code on your Android phone.
  3. Tap Continue and follow the on-screen prompts.
  4. Select WhatsApp on the Transfer Data screen.

  7. Tap CONTINUE to transfer the data from your Android phone to your iPhone and wait for Move to iOS to confirm the transfer is complete.
  8. Install the latest version of WhatsApp from the App Store.
  9. Open WhatsApp and log in using the same phone number used on your old device.
  10. Tap Start when prompted, and allow the process to complete.
  11. Finish activating your new device and you’ll see your chats waiting for you.
