The WhatsApp platform recently announced that it allows users to transfer conversations between iPhone and Android phones, and this feature was available to users of the beta version of the application.
The feature is now available to all users of the application, where everyone can transfer conversations between Android phones and iPhone.
But you can use this feature on Samsung Galaxy phones only, and it has not yet reached the rest of the Android phones.

How to transfer WhatsApp chats between iPhone and Android
WhatsApp sets a set of conditions so that you can use the official tool to transfer between iPhone and Android. You must own a Samsung phone, and the transfer is from an iPhone to a Samsung phone only.
So you cannot transfer your chats from Samsung phone or any Android phone to iPhone. You also need a direct wired connection between the two phones, and that means using a USB C to Lightning cable.
This method works by installing the Samsung SmartSwitch app, and your phone must be in factory settings.
Then you need to connect the two phones together via cable, and then follow the steps that appear through the Samsung app.
And when you see the QR Code, you need to scan it through the WhatsApp application on the iPhone in order for the copy process to take place.
The screen to start the copying process appears, and you can press the start button to start the copying process and transfer conversations between the two phones.
After that, you can complete the steps on your Samsung phone in order to open WhatsApp and log in with your old phone number.
According to what the company says, it intends to support more phones via this method in the coming days, in addition to facilitating the steps better.

Transfer conversations informally
This method is considered the first official method announced by WhatsApp since its appearance. But this does not mean that there are no informal ways to convey the conversations.
Unofficial methods may not always work, as the company has been closing the vulnerabilities that these methods and their own applications exploit.
The transfer process through the official method of WhatsApp is highly encrypted and secured, as the conversations between the two phones are encrypted without the company knowing about it.
It is not possible to say that transmission of conversations via informal methods has the same encryption or security. So you should beware when you are transmitting conversations via these informal ways.
