WhatsApp chats can now be transferred between Android and iOS devices after the meta-owned messaging app plans to release a new update.
This is contradicted by the source code found in the WhatsApp 22.74 beta for iOS. However, the migration process won’t be easy and both devices will need to have the app installed and will probably include a wired or private WiFi connection. In contrast, other messaging apps store and sync user data with Google Drive, iCloud, or their own cloud service.
WhatsApp has recently added new features to its desktop and Android apps. The Android app will get new pencil and drawing tools in a future update, while the WhatsApp desktop will get new chat bubble colors. The desktop app also gets a new dark blue color that only appears in dark theme mode.
The Instant Messaging app is also testing the new Emoji Message Reaction Info tab and the new Message Reaction notification setting. WhatsApp feature tracker WABetaInfo said that WhatsApp is introducing new drawing tools in its Android app.
You get two pens, one thinner and one thicker than the existing pen. The app is also working on a blur tool that may be added in the future.
WhatsApp Beta for Android 2.22.5 update had new features, but it is disabled by default.
These features are still under development and may be made available to WhatsApp beta testers soon.
