Are you using WhatsApp? You’ll be fine if you change your Phone
You can now transfer your data to another phone
Previously, it was only at the promised level that WhatsApp data was transferred to other large mobile operating systems. From now on, however, it will gradually become available.
While end-to-end encryption is one of WhatsApp’s most important user-friendly features, it can be a problem if someone switches platforms and transfers their chat history from iOS to Android (or vice versa). The problem is that chats are stored on your device, not in the cloud, precisely because of encryption.
Luckily, the transfer can be done, and as early as April, it was discovered that WhatsApp specialists now owned by Facebook were working on it.
And Samsung’s recent Unpacked event has already made an official announcement: after the tests, the relocation can start live, with a few limitations for now. Although the feature is supposed to be two-way, it is currently only available from iOS to Android, particularly Samsung smartphones. The condition is that your phone has an Android ten or later operating system running. The good news is that chats, previous videos, and voice messages can be transferred.
