Goodbye to the complications when switching between iOS and Android, because WhatsApp is already testing in ‘beta' a new option that will facilitate this transition with a single QR code.
It's been a while since we published a tutorial to make it easier for you to switch from iPhone to Android without losing your WhatsApp conversations, although it seems that Facebook developers kept working on better tools that facilitate this transition between platforms for the flagship messaging service.
In fact, they told us from 9to5Google that WhatsApp already tested in a new Android data restoration tool, which will facilitate the transfer of our complete histories if we change mobile platform.
The idea of the new tool seems to be to alleviate, as far as possible, the capital limitation of using WhatsApp on just one mobile phone, something that has not even changed with the arrival also in tests of the multi-device function, being able with this new option move chats and files easily on Android or iOS without major complications.
WhatsApp wants to facilitate the transition between iOS and Android with a new app and QR codes, perhaps to remedy the small inconvenience of using only one mobile, even with the multi-device function that is yet to come.
This new tool arrives to update the current one to version 1.0.382048734, preparing to copy WhatsApp chats and history from iPhone to Android phone using QR code like the one we show you below:
The process will be as simple as accessing WhatsApp from Android and opening the option to , this It will open a QR code that we must scan from the iPhone, and then pressing the button we just have to keep iPhone unlocked and WhatsApp open so that the process is completed without killing the application.
We can also access from the iPhone itself, entering from the to start the process.
The option is in development and as it has always been discovered by WaBetaInfo, which shows us how it works to show us that it is very close to its arrival in stable versions of the application:
WhatsApp is developing a feature to migrate your chats between different platforms.
This video shows how chats are migrated from iOS. It's needed a cable: are new tools for PC coming or what?

For now we can only applaud the movement, especially us who change a lot between smartphones, so welcome are the options although the ideal is still a full multi-device and multi-platform mode like the one we enjoy on Telegram almost from its birth.
