WhatsApp will soon allow users to transfer chats to a different phone number

One of the most popular messaging apps, WhatsApp is bringing the chats transfer feature for over a billion users which will not only improve the chat transfer process but will also provide more convenient transfer of data for the users as well. As per the reports, the feature will unroll in the near future where users will be allowed to make chats transfer between devices and as the rumours say, new capabilities will be introduced in the near future. Also, the feature will work across multiple devices along with the sync data feature according to the company.

Users will be able to move chats with all the history to another WhatsApp number which make the process better than it previously was. The feature works for both Android and iOS users as per recent reports. Currently, WhatsApp allows access to chat history only on your personal phone number but after the introduction of this feature users will be able to transfer all chat data to their new mobile number without any hassle.

According to WABetaInfo which has revealed some screenshots of the iOS-Android migration feature, the feature will take you to a similar tool that will then transfer your WhatsApp chats and tie them to your new phone number. This feature finds its application in situations where the user is making a move to a new smartphone and can’t bring over their current phone number for some reason.

Currently this Facebook-owned service allows restoring the backup of the users’ WhatsApp chats only if they have the same number and operating system as their device which they previously used. Along with your chats, WhatsApp will also allow migration of media files to the user’s alternate phone number but the process to change WhatsApp phone number should begin before users start migrating their chat history.
