WhatsApp killer feature could make it easier to switch between Android and iOS

WhatsApp looks poised to fix one of the messaging app’s biggest problems, and let users finally transfer their chat history between iOS and Android devices.

That’s according to WABetaInfo, which is reporting that developers are working on a new feature that enables cross-platform WhatsApp backups. Unfortunately, there’s no timeline on when this feature might actually arrive. 

WhatsApp has offered users the option to backup their chat history for several years now. However, the feature has always been restricted to devices on the same platform — leaving some of the messaging service’s estimated 2 billion users to ask for a way to transfer their chats between Android and iOS devices.

Fortunately, that feature is now in the works — as shown by the above screenshot discovered by WABetaInfo.
