The new WhatsApp transfer feature might be part of Google’s new “Switch to Android” app feature, XDA Developers reveals. Switch to Android may be similar to Apple’s “Move to iOS” software, which helps customers transfer from Android to iOS.
WhatsApp is currently testing multi-device support, which allows users to access their chats from many devices without having to route through a single main device. Additionally, WhatsApp is working on a mechanism to move conversation history across various phone numbers, according to WABetaInfo. Currently, it’s unclear when any of these features will be available to the users.
