If you have ever wanted to switch from iPhone to Android, the biggest question you ask yourself is how to transfer the data and back up between these two operating systems. Although there are legit solutions for transferring data like photos, videos, contacts, notes, reminders and calendar details. But none of them offers a way to transfer WhatsApp data from iPhone to Android.
The entire limitation of transferring data between two devices is due to the way both operating systems manage the WhatsApp backup. Apple only allows WhatsApp to take backup on iCloud and Google does the same with its Google Drive.
What if? There’s a way that allows users to transfer WhatsApp backup from iPhone to Android. Wondering how to do that, follow our step-by-step guide.
Before moving with the steps, it is essential to know that looking at the complication, the process is not that easy or straightforward and might be time-consuming.
Steps to follow on iPhone
Open WhatsApp on iPhone and swipe left on the chat you want to export
Now, tap on More button and select the Export chat option
Here choose the Mail option and enter the email id that is linked to your Android device
Repeat the same with other chats as well.
Steps to follow on Android smartphone
Access the mail and download all the linked files
Then delete WhatsApp and reinstall it from Google Play Store
At the Restore data screen, while setting up the app, choose Restore option
Wait for the app to complete the restore process and then hit the Next button
Once the restore process is complete, all the chats will be available on your Android device. This is quite a tedious process and if you don’t want to use any third-party apps or services, this is the best method to transfer WhatsApp chat backup from iPhone to Android.
