New York: Most popular social media messaging app, WhatsApp will allow its users to transfer their chat history, including photos and voice memos, between iOS and Android. The feature will be available to users of both Android and iOS platforms and this means that people will be able to switch from both Android to iOS and vice versa.
‘We are excited for the first time to make it easy for people to securely transfer their WhatsApp history from one operating system to another’, said WhatsApp Product Manager Sandeep Paruchuri in a statement.
