    I recently changed my phone from Samsung 6 Edge+ to iPhone 6S. Using the "move to IOS" app, I moved my contacts, pictures, SMS and some other details to the iPhone. However, I have been unable to move the WhatsApp messages.

    Please how do I get to move WhatsApp messages from the Samsung 6 edge+ to iPhone 6S?

    You cannot. This is not a limitation of neither Android or iOS but that of WhatsApp itself.

    Google Drive is the best option for backup your messages where you can migrate it from any mobile platform at any instance of time. Its Free and Integrated with WhatsApp. No need to use Third Party Softwares like Backuptrans or any other software.

    1. Open WhatsApp.
    2. Go to Menu > Settings > Chats and calls > Chat backup.
    3. Tap on Back up to Google Drive and set up the backup frequency to your liking.
    4. Select your Google Account and Press Backup.
    All your WhatsApp messages will be backup on Google Drive.

    How to Restore WhatsApp Messages from Google Drive?

    1. Make sure the same Google account that was used to perform the backup has been added to your phone.
    2. Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp.
    3. After verifying your number, you will be prompted to restore your messages and media from Google Drive.
    4. After the restoration process is complete, tap on Next and your chats will be displayed once initialization is complete.

    Hope this helps you...

    Maybe copying the Google Drive based backup to iCloud, and then restoring from iCloud is an option? Or the reverse path, iCloud manual copy to Google Drive for a restore to an Android smartphone. I have not tried, but would be good to know in the event I end up trying WhatsApp in the future.

    You can’t access any backups saved to iCloud via a web interface nor through iCloud on Windows or Mac.

    The only thing you can access is iCloud Drive, but backups aren’t saved to there.
