WhatsApp has not only diversified its functions but has become the most downloaded application worldwide, surpassing Telegram for its ease of use. But what happens if we want to move from iPhone to Android and we want to bring our conversations to WhatsApp? Here we explain how this process works step by step.
Preparing for the Move
Before you begin, make sure your Android device has the Smart Switch app installed, especially if it’s a Samsung or Google cell phone. If you know someone who has a device from these brands, it might help to ask them to lend it to you.
Steps to Transfer Conversations
- Open Smart Switch on your Android device.
- Connect your iPhone to Android. Wait until the devices are synced and select share data.
- Go to WhatsApp Settings, then Chats and finally Transfer your chats to Android.
- Start the migration. This process can take a while, especially if you have a lot of conversations.
Termination of Transfer
Once the migration is complete, download and install WhatsApp from Google Play on your Android device, enter your phone number and verification code. Then, in the Recover Chats feature, select download and your conversations will appear on your new device.
This process is especially effective for Samsung and Google devices. Although it may seem laborious, making sure you do each step correctly will ensure you don’t lose any WhatsApp conversations when switching from an iPhone to an Android.
