Today we are going to talk about how to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone without factory reset.

In addition to a third-party transfer tool, you can also make use of Email chat to transfer WhatsApp messages by emailing yourself. With this general method, you are able to transfer WhatsApp to any device as long as you can log into your Email address on this device. As the amounts of messages have an impact on transfer speed, it's better to move small portions of WhatsApp chat data. Since these WhatsApp messages are sent in TXT format, they are for download and viewing only, not for seeing in WhatsApp.

Step 1. Open WhatsApp on your Android phone.

Step 2. Go to Settings > Chats > Chat history > Export chat.

Step 3. Then select the messages you want to transfer (videos are also available to choose from).

Step 4. Tap Gmail/Email on the SHARE screen and enter your other Email address as the recipient.
