WABetaInfo has also shared a screenshot showing how the feature will work once released. The screenshots show that it will be called “Move chats to Android”. The option will be added separately to WhatsApp’s iOS app. The Facebook-owned messaging platform has not revealed any details about the iOS to Android chat transfer feature yet.
Since the feature is under development, it is expected to first release for iOS beta users and then followed by the stable build. The timeline of the release is still unknown. “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? It’ll be available for beta testers in a future update,” the website wrote.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has introduced a new Archived Chatssetting that will help keep archived chats where they belong. No more of them popping up when a message is received.
“Archive on WhatsApp lets you organize your private messages and prioritize important conversations. Your Archived chats will now remain archived and muted but you can always change them back!,” WhatsApp wrote on micro-blogging platform Twitter.
WhatsApp Archived Chats allows users to organize private messages and prioritize important conversations, the company said in a statement. The messaging platform further said that many users have been demanding that archived messages should hide in the Archived Chats folder, instead of making it to the main chat list.
