How To Send Whatsapp Chat Backup From iPhone To Android Phones

Switching from iPhone to Android, you will not find any inner option to transfer chats from one phone to another phone within the app. This mainly happens because Whatsapp for iOS stores backup chats in iCloud storage for iPhone users whereas Whatsapp for Android phones uses Google Drive to store that backup chats.

Although, users can export their chats via mail and then restore it on another phone each chat will need individually exported, that's why it is a quite complex process. But users can definitely transfer and restore chat backups and that's a guarantee.
