WhatsApp (chatdk.com) : New chat transfer can only be used on Samsung smartphones for the time being
With a new feature, switching smartphones should be made easier, at least with WhatsApp. In the future, Messenger will be able to take over all chats from iOS to Android devices and vice versa. But for the time being, only Samsung users will be able to enjoy the feature.
WhatsApp has been planning a new feature for some time to make it easier to switch between smartphones. The aim is to make it easier to switch between iOS and Android smartphones.
After long speculation about this feature, WhatsApp let the cat out of the bag as part of the Samsung Unpacked event. The new feature will initially be rolled out for Samsung smartphones that support at least Android 10. The WhatsApp function is to be rolled out in the coming weeks, only then will other Android devices and iOS smartphones follow.
WhatsApp: New feature brings great benefits
As a first screenshot of the feature shows, the WhatsApp version must be updated on both devices before the transfer. This is the only way to use the whole. After the transfer, the devices are synchronized. Sent messages or pinned chats are displayed on both devices at the same time. When deleting messages, however, this must be done separately on both devices.
Anyone who switches to a new device and wants to keep important WhatsApp chats - and thus memories - should be particularly pleased with this feature.
There are unofficial third-party apps that enable chat changes on WhatsApp. But those responsible for WhatsApp have repeatedly emphasized that these violate the terms and conditions. Thanks to the new feature, iOS and Android users will soon be offered an official solution.
