WhatsApp is expected to deploy two widely desired features in the near future. The first is something iPhone users have been waiting for since Samsung Galaxy owners, and later Pixel phone owners, were able to move their conversation history from an iOS device. WABetaInfo discovered evidence of a feature that lets you move your chat history from Android to iOS in the current WhatsApp iOS beta release, according to a post seen by The Verge. The find follows up on one made by the outlet in September.
According to WABetaInfo’s screenshots, the programme will ask for your consent before moving your chat history. You also know that as part of the transfer procedure, you’ll need to use Apple’s Move to iOS programme, which you learned about in an earlier leak. On Android, the process is a little more complicated because you’ll need a Lightning to USB-C cable and a phone that’s either brand new or has recently been factory reset.
WhatsApp is also working on a two-step verification functionality for its desktop and web clients, according to a second post published over the weekend by WABetaInfo. The feature will allow you to add a personal pin to your account if the firm moves forward with a release. As a result, you’ll need to enter that passcode, as well as the six-digit pin WhatsApp provides to your phone, if you wish to use WhatsApp on your computer or online. This is something that can assist you avoid SIM switch attacks.
It’s unknown when either functionality will be released by the corporation. WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart stated a month before the migration launched on Samsung smartphones that it would be available on iOS phones “soon.”
