Today, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a quick one for WhatsApp users Announcement Users will now be able to switch between Android and iPhone without losing encryption in their messages.
As Zuckerberg noted, this is a highly requested feature that provides more flexibility and security for many WhatsApp users looking to switch to a new device.
Added the power of WhatsApp Transfer your data from iPhone to Android Last year, that was a major pain for many WhatsApp users.
Before Last year’s update, Transferring your data means losing your chat history, because there was no way to maintain security during the change. Because WhatsApp chat End-to-end encrypted, and stored on the device, Meta says it had to work collaboratively with OS developers to come up with a solution that would allow data sharing in this way.
And now, those who are switching between Android and iPhone will have the same capabilities, which will give users more choice in selecting and managing their devices.
The update process is being rolled out to all WhatsApp users starting today.
