In year 2021, almost everyone is already rocking a smartphone, be it an Apple iPhone or an Android device from the sea of Android device manufacturers. Back then, upgrading to a new Android device was a pain, but now it is as seamless as ever with the countless cloud backup features by Google Play Services and Samsung Smart Switch.
Okay Okay I get it, what's the big deal with cross-platform backup?
Still... There's still one pain in the bumm, when jumping ship from iPhone to Android or vice versa, its still incredibly hard to get it up and running with all your photos, music, apps, settings and what not. If you needed do make it work somehow, costly paid third party apps are needed to get the job done, and they are still finicky at best.
That pain of yours is alleviated somewhat on August 11th, 2021. The day when Samsung announced that iOS and Android WhatsApp cross-platform chat history backup is now happening! Now available to the newly announced, super-modern Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G.
This neat feature, according to Samsung, will be trickling down to Samsung's other devices soon, so you can rest easy that the chat history (XOXO comments or anniversary photos) with your ❤️ loved ones on your aging iPhone can make the seamless transition into your brand-new Galaxy smartphone soon!
How do you do it?
