Before we show a step by step of how to migrate your WhatsApp contents, here’s a brief overview of the solution Dr.Fone – WhatsApp Transfer.

Features of Dr.Fone – WhatsApp Transfer

Effortless WhatsApp Transfer
Regardless of whether you wish to use the same WhatsApp chats across multiple devices or if you simply need to migrate your chats from your old handset to the new, you can use this program to selectively transfer your WhatsApp chat history between your Android, iPhone and iPad.

This software fixes the known issue that WhatsApp history can only be restored to a device of the same operating system (i.e. Android to Android or iOS to iOS). Dr.Fone – WhatsApp Transfer is compatible with both operating systems and so makes it possible to back and restore chats, attachments and messages from iOS to Android and vice versa.

This Android PC Suite isn’t limited to WhatsApp either, you can even backup all of your LINE/Kik/Viber/Wechat chat history, including personal chats and group chats; text, voice and video chat history; images and stickers. You can preview the LINE/Kik/Viber/Wechat backup file and restore chat history or even selectively export any item to your computer for safe keeping.

OK, that’s the software. Let’s show you step by step how it works:

Step 1. Launch WhatsApp Transfer Software

Launch Dr.Fone on your computer, and select “WhatsApp Transfer”.

Step 2. Transfer WhatsApp Messages to Android/iOS Devices

To transfer WhatsApp messages from an Android device to another Android device or even an iOS device to an Android device, choose “Transfer WhatsApp messages”. Then connect your two devices to the computer. Once the program detects them, you will get the window as follows.

Step 3. Begin to transfer WhatsApp messages

Now, click “Transfer” to begin the WhatsApp message transfer. Since the transfer here will erase existing WhatsApp messages from the destination device, you need to click “Yes” to confirm this action if you still want to move forward.

Step 4. Wait until the WhatsApp message transfer is complete

During the transfer, you don’t need to do anything. Just keep your devices connected and wait for the process to finish. When you see the window below, you can disconnect your devices and view the transferred data on your destination device.

And there you have it! All of your previous WhatsApp chats, messages and data seamlessly migrated to your new device and operating system. Please let us know how you got on in the comments below.
