WhatsApp: data migration from Android to iOS is finally officially possible

WhatsApp has announced in the past few hours that the function to migrate app data from to iOS and vice versa is now available for all users of the messaging platform. The news comes just over a month after the activation of the similar function in the beta version of the client. This means that even those who now use a stable version should receive the activation of the function that satisfies – finally with an official tool – a need for a long time expressed by users.

Basically, the function allows you to transfer account information, profile photo, single and group chats, chat history, multimedia content and settings from the WhatsApp app for to the iOS one. However, it does not move the call history.


It is also important to keep in mind some important information on the data transferred:

  • They are not stored in the cloud until an iCloud backup is created.
  • Whatsapp cannot viewe the data.
  • They also remain in the smartphone until you delete WhatsApp or the smartphone memory.

To contextualize the news, please note that WhatsApp has offered the possibility of performing the reverse operation; (migration from iPhone to Android) even with Pixel and 12-based smartphones since last autumn; previously it was only possible to do so towards a limited number of models.

  • smartphone with Android 5.0 or later
  • iOS smartphone with iOS 15.5 or later
  • WhatsApp for in version 2.22.7.74 or later
  • WhatsApp for iOS in version 2.22.19.70 or later
