A senior programmer well-versed in the mechanics of platforms like WhatsApp.

One of the biggest downsides of using WhatsApp as your main texting platform is that you cannot transfer WhatsApp chats from an Android device to one that’s running on iOS and vice versa. But luckily, there are third-party tools that can help with this.

In this article, I’ll introduce you to some of the best tools that can be used to transfer WhatsApp chats across platforms. Let’s have a detailed look at all of the tools and decide the winner.
