Bring your WhatsApp chat history to Android

Home » Blog » Bring your WhatsApp chat history to Android

Switching to a new phone can be a daunting experience, especially if you are moving to a completely different operating system. We want to make this process easier, so with the recent Android 12 release, we added the ability to transfer all your essentials by connecting your iPhone with your new Android phone using a cable. With your permission, Android automatically matches and installs the same apps from Google Play, and lets you easily bring your SMS and iMessage history with you, along with photos, videos, contacts, calendars and more.

But we can do more, too. Historically, certain types of data were impossible to bring across when switching from an iPhone to Android. Things like your WhatsApp chat history – those cherished memories, photos, voice messages and conversations with friends and family — can be really tough to leave behind, and that’s something we wanted to fix. So starting today, you can safely transfer your chat history and memories from your WhatsApp account on iPhone to Android. We worked closely with the WhatsApp team to build a new set of capabilities, all designed to make it easier to switch from iPhone to Android and take your WhatsApp history with you.
