WhatsApp will finally allow you to migrate chats from Android to iPhone (and vice versa) – MacMagazine.com

There are some certainties in life: death, taxes and the fact that if you exchange your Android smartphone for an iPhone (or vice versa), your existing conversations from WhatsApp will be lost forever, as it is not possible to export chats from one platform to another (at least unofficially). This will soon be passed on!

According to the WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp development team is developing a feature that will eventually allow users to migrate your cross-platform conversation history – from Android to iOS or from iOS to Android. The website has already obtained the first screenshot of the tool, in which the application asks the user to make an update to transfer their conversations.

Chat migration tool between iOS and Android from WhatsApp

According to the WABetaInfo, the novelty is part of a larger package of changes that, one day, will turn WhatsApp into a truly app multi platform – that is, you can have multiple account sessions active on different platform devices, and WhatsApp Web / Desktop will no longer depend on a connection with your smartphone. This, of course, should take a little longer to happen.

Anyway, the migration of chats between platforms is already quite a step – and should end once and for all with third-party tools and modified versions of WhatsApp that promise to make this service (and that violate the messenger terms of use, it is worth noting) .

There is still no prediction of when the chat migration tool will be released to the general public, but we will keep an eye out.

Larger images

About a month ago, we talked here about a new feature – still in the testing phase – of Twitter that would start to show, on feed, whole images, uncut. Because, apparently, change is a trend: also according to the WABetaInfo, O WhatsApp is testing something similar.

The novelty, already present in the test version 2.21.70.11, makes the previews of the images appear much larger in the conversation. Nowadays, as you probably know, an image that is not square is cropped to “fit” in an application’s message balloon – you can only check the entire image by touching it. With the new version, it will be much easier to check the entire image online, in the message flow itself.

In other words, yes, those infamous WhatsApp jokes – I know that you know what I’m talking about – they’ll probably die soon. They were no longer very effective on WhatsApp Web / Desktop, in which the image is cropped differently, and now they are likely to lose grace on mobile devices, too.

The novelty will certainly take effect very soon, in one of the future updates of WhatsApp for the general public. So, did you enjoy it?
