We're adding to WhatsApp the ability to securely switch between phones and transfer your chat history, photos, videos, and voice messages between Android and iPhone while maintaining end-to-end encryption. This is a top requested feature. We launched the ability to switch from iPhone-->Android last year, and now adding Android-->iPhone as well.

The biggest advantage with this implementation is that it uses the native "Move to iOS" app for the transfer. So, it's a seamless transfer. No need to download additional apps etc., Great job WA Devs!

Can there be a possibility of merging the chats, I still have some chats stored as zip file on my gmail and now some chats are there on iOS when I switched.

Is that even a possibility, haven’t read anywhere about that.

My guess is that you will only have one of them. However, no one will know the answer to this unless they practically try it. One of you can try and see what happens.
