My girl has a Google Pixel 2xl, and last week was her birthday and i gifted her and iphoes 11. She wants to pass whatsapp messages from android to ios. I have searched in google in i have two options, which one would you recomend to us.
-Dr.phone
-MobileTrans

Prices in "dr.phone whatapp backup" are 30dollars 1 year/50 $ lifetime. In Mobiletrans is 50 $ lifetime and 60 full features (only few more like contacts or photos [this can do manually])

In the WhatsApp she can choose backup messages on the android phone. When she downloads it onto the iPhone it will give an option to retrieve messages backed up.

Ummm, no. I had hoped that this would work, too. But, in the iOS version of What's App it clearly says that it's backing up to iCloud. It appears the Android version of What's App cannot access this and visa versa

I don't get why people get hung up on messages that have been sent in the past, move on and keep talking...
But anyway, I went through this for a family member recently and you'd have to download an app on android and it was a huge workaround, at the end the person just started over on the new phone.

Cause people normaly have and attachment to close people like friends, family, partner.
If someone want to know, i used dr.fone a wondershare paid like 30 euros for a 1 year (you can use in diferents phone). You may think is expensive, so do i. The only problem i had is the past mesage appear as blue double cheked even if it was disenabled.

Pd: offf topic how i can but the products in here to appear at the end of meesage. LIke you @guicane have macbook pro 16", iphone 11 pro max, Aw series 5

Yeah I guess, one of the reasons I only use Telegram, not having to worry with this nonsense but Whatsapp is everywhere so...

Oh, so WhatsApp does not restore from Android to iOS?
I thought the WhatsApp backups were stored in WhatsApp cloud services. Thus, one could restore from one OS, to another.

Interesting...
