WhatsApp officially announced the migration of chats between platforms in August, although its activation was staggered. It started with the migration from iPhone to the more powerful Samsung Galaxy with the help of Smart Switch and now Google has announced that it is possible too with a Google Pixel phone.
In this case transfer WhatsApp chats from iPhone to Android It is supported by Google’s Data Transfer Tool and is now available for Google Pixels and soon for all phones that are released with Android 12 pre-installed.
Take your chats with you
One of the most anticipated functions of WhatsApp is power take your chat history with you when you change from an Android mobile to an iPhone or vice versa. This was not officially possible until a few months ago, when it first debuted on Samsung’s new folding phones.
Now the transfer of chats is also possible with Google Pixel phones, and still in the same sense: that is, from iPhone to Android and not the other way around. The process is very similar to what should be carried out with a Samsung mobile, with the difference that the Google transfer tool is used here and not the Smart Switch.
To transfer WhatsApp chats for iPhone to your Google Pixel, you must connect the two phones with a USB-C to Lightning cable and follow the process in Data Transfer Tool. The application will then show a QR code that you must scan with the iPhone to start the copying process.
The good news is that the feature won’t stick with Google Pixels. In addition to being already available on all Google Pixel phones, it will reach all new mobiles that are launched with Android 12 pre-installed. We still don’t know when exactly or if it will later roll out to those upgrading to Android 12.
