If you’re going from an iPhone to an Android, you’ve most likely encountered the issue of transferring WhatsApp data to your new Android phone in the past because WhatsApp didn’t have a proper means for transferring data at the time. Instead, we had to rely on third-party services to transmit our full WhatsApp data. However, Google has now developed a mechanism that allows us to migrate our data to Android quickly.
Google revealed in August that iPhone users could now migrate their WhatsApp data to Android. The hitch was that the Android phone had to be a Samsung phone, or the transfer would fail. This will cause many problems for other smartphone manufacturers such as Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo, and others. As a result of this issue, Google made this transfer function available to all Android cellphones, with the caveat that the Android phone must be running the most recent Android 12 OS.
You may then use the feature of transferring your WhatsApp data after you have Android 12 installed on your Android device. To guarantee that this feature works effectively, you’ll need a lightning to USB – C cable that connects both your Android and iPhone. You will be able to transfer your WhatsApp text messages, images, videos, and voice messages from your iPhone to your new Android handset using this feature.
In this article, we’ll go over the right technique and steps for using this feature so that you can quickly get WhatsApp up and running on your new Android device.
This function is only available on Android phones running the latest Android 12 operating system. Please double-check your Android OS version in your phone’s Settings before proceeding. If your phone’s OS version is less than 12, this feature will not function.
- Use the lightning to USB-C cable to connect your phones. Connect the lightning end of the cable to your iPhone and the type C end to your Android device.
- A QR code will appear on your Android screen as you set up your device. Scan the QR code on your Android with your iPhone. Open the Camera app on your iPhone and point the camera at the QR code to accomplish this. The iPhone would handle the remainder.
- When your iPhone scans the QR code, it will automatically launch WhatsApp and begin transferring all of your WhatsApp data to your new Android handset. Please confirm that neither device is disconnected or experiencing any interruptions.
- Let us know in the comments how the functionality assisted you with your WhatsApp issue.
