While since WhatsApp work on the function to synchronize the chats of an account between mobiles iOS and Android, the first details that emerge highlight that it will be necessary to have both devices connected by cable, without the need for external services.
The WhatsApp messaging application does not currently have any way to migrate chats between iOS and Android mobiles, since while the former use iCloud for backups, the seconds use Google drive.
The app is currently developing ways to make this data transfer possible, as published on Twitter by the specialized site WABetaInfo, which shared a video of the feature noticed in beta versions of WhatsApp but not yet available.
In the new tool that allows you to pass chats from iOS to Android, it is specified that it is necessary to have both phones connected by cable, and it requires keeping the device unlocked and the app open.
WhatsApp is developing a feature to migrate your chats between different platforms.
This video shows how chats are migrated from iOS. It’s needed a cable: are new tools for PC coming or what?

Once the process of sending the files from iOS is finished, the function informs the user that they can continue the process from the cell phone with the Android operating system and open WhatsApp to restore your chat and file history.
Improvements with the sound of voice audios
The WhatsApp messaging application has begun to test a new function with which shows sound waves while the user records a voice message, replacing the current progress bar system.
The new feature being tested in the beta version 188.8.131.52 WhatsApp for Android uses sound waves when the user records a voice message, within a renewed design for this function, as also pointed out from WABetaInfo.
WhatsApp aims to replace the traditional progress bar in voice messages.
Sound waves advance while the user speaks or records sounds in a voice message, and replace the current interface with a progress bar.
It will also be possible to delete the message and listen to it again before sending it, without the need for alternative tricks, although at the moment they are not available in the stable version of the messaging app.
