The new multi-device support is one of the most demanded and awaited feature on WhatsApp, which is under testings for a very long time. Another demanded feature for WhatsApp is the chats migration from Android to iOS devices, which reportedly is being tested by the Messaging app. A news report has emerged stating that the company is working on the functionality that will be released in the coming future.
Until now there is no official way to transfer your WhatsApp chats from Android to the iPhone. The users have to take support of third-party apps to migrate their chats history from iOS to Android and vice versa. In order to eliminate the use of third-party apps, WhatsApp is reportedly working on the development of a feature that will make the chats migration easier. As per WhatsApp, the unsupported apps such as WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp, or apps that claim to move your WhatsApp chats between phones, are altered versions of WhatsApp. These unofficial apps are developed by third parties and violate our Terms of Service. WhatsApp doesn’t support these third-party apps because we can’t validate their security practices.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, the instant messaging service is developing the feature, and it will be released in a future update when it’s ready enabling the possibility to transfer chat history between iOS and Android. The leaker has also shared a screenshot that soon the feature will be released in a future update.
The report says, “When the user tries to link a device having a different operating system to his WhatsApp account, it’s always needed to update to the latest WhatsApp update available on the App Store or TestFlight, in order to avoid any compatibility error with the Android version. Unfortunately, there is no date available for the release, but stay tuned to discover more new features and announcements!”
In the past, WhatsApp was also seen working on bringing an option to change the playback speed for voice message. This feature is under development and will be available in a future iOS/Android update. The messaging app is working on 3 different playback speeds for voice messages with a fresh UI. The playback speed can be simply changed by tapping the speed label: 1.0X, 1.5X and 2.0X are the available options. The app is also expected to support lower playback speeds. The feature is under development and there are no further details at the time.
