WhatsApp might soon allow chat transfer between iOS, Android

According to official guidance, which has existed since 2013, a record only needs to be retained "if it is needed for substantive discussions or decisions in the course of conducting business". For example, this law would apply to messages exchanged between special advisors and a minister regarding government policy.
"We are in an unprecedented national emergency and we are going to have no records of how decisions were made or even who made them," the spokesperson added.

WhatsApp is soon to introduce the ability to transfer chat history between Android and iOS with ease.

The features tracker says that the upcoming feature would eliminate the need to use third-party apps.

It is currently under development and will be available in a future update.

This is a much-needed feature that WhatsApp is working on as many a time when you switch to iOS from Android and vice versa, you lose your chat history.

However, if WhatsApp rolls out this feature, switching operating systems will not be as much a problem as it is now.

As per Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is testing the chat history migration feature which would let users transfer their chat history from Android to iOS and vice versa, seamlessly. The features tracker says that the upcoming feature would eliminate the need to use third-party apps like WhatsApp Plus and more that violate the terms of service.

“WhatsApp will allow migrating your chat history from WhatsApp for iOS to WhatsApp for Android. It is obvious that WhatsApp will also allow the opposite way. When the user tries to link a device having a different operating system to his WhatsApp account, it’s always needed to update to the latest WhatsApp update available on the App Store or TestFlight, in order to avoid any compatibility error with the Android version,” Wabetainfo report stated.
