With over 2 billion users, WhatsApp remains the most popular chat app, and amid the recent privacy uproar, that figure is unlikely to drop significantly. However, there is a weakness in this Facebook-owned app: Android users would not be able to move their WhatsApp conversations to it if they switch to iOS or iPhone.
For a few months, WhatsApp has been working on a feature that allows users to switch their chat history between Android and iOS devices. However, the company is working on another update that will enable users to move their chat history to another phone number. This functionality is being reviewed on WhatsApp's Android and iOS versions at the moment.
Currently, WhatsApp chat history is saved in Google Drive (Android) and iCloud (iPhone), but this backup is restricted because users are limited to a single network and phone number when switching phones. WhatsApp is working on a feature that will allow users to share their chat history between devices and channels, which will be very useful for them.
WhatsApp's chat conversion feature allows you to move your message history from one phone to another. However, it is unknown how long users will be able to access this option, although it is expected to happen soon. People who have two phones or wish to update their phone numbers will benefit from this feature.
This new functionality would also be useful for multi-device support, as it will enable users to link different devices to one account. At this time, it is unclear what he will do after leaving the role.
