WhatsApp is gradually being expanded to include new functions that many users have been wanting for years. A feature has now been activated that was previously not considered to be feasible because it involves changing the operating system and taking all chats with you. There is currently a small restriction.
WhatsApp allows data to be transferred between iPhone and Samsung cell phones
Update from September 8th, 2021: WhatsApp has now officially announced the new function for taking data with you (source: WhatsApp). But there are still two restrictions. Currently you can only take your data with you from the iPhone . In addition, the data can only be transferred to a Samsung cell phone . In the future, the function is to be expanded so that you can take data with you more freely.
Anyone who has previously switched from an Android cell phone to an iPhone or vice versa and wants to take their chats, pictures and videos with them is looking into the tube. Transferring a backup only works if you stick to an Android device or iPhone. That will change shortly. Samsung was honored to announce the new WhatsApp feature at the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. During the presentation of the new folding cell phones, WhatsApp data was demonstrated .
The new feature will first be used on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 , which will be launched on August 27, 2021. Of course, Samsung wants to ensure that iPhone users can easily switch to a folding cell phone, since Apple does not offer such a futuristic device. Since WhatsApp is one of the most important apps on our phones, it removes another hurdle when switching between operating systems. The function should then be available to all people later.

WhatsApp: data transfer only by cable
Interestingly, the data transfer from WhatsApp will only be possible via cable when switching from iPhone to Android and vice versa. So WhatsApp has not created a new way of pulling a backup from the cloud. You have to connect the Android device to the iPhone with a cable so that personal chats, pictures and videos can be transferred directly. Restoring a backup is not possible. You should consider this before you sell your old cell phone when you switch.
