Transfer Whatsapp Messages from Android to iOS?

Inherited my spouse's iphone x and wanted to know how I can transfer my whatsapp messages from android to ios?

If I cant then this is a dealbreaker for me and will stick to my S7 until S11 is released.

I did some searches online and it appears there is a paid app that might able to do it... Haven't tried it myself... Would like to hear from someone who did the transfer as well!

Saw that as well and I am hoping that its not my only choice.

I want to go back to Android when S11 comes out and just use the iphonex in the interim. But I may have to bite the bullet and have two separate logs of whatapps.

WhatsApp has a backup feature which saves your history to Google Drive, I think.
Would that not restore your chat history on iOS?

If you have a second phone number and an old spare Android phone lying around, the safest way would be to:
1) Set up a new WhatsApp accound with the spare number and phone
2) Send yourself messages, pictures and videos for a week
3) Use WhatsApp backup functionality
4) Use the spare account on the iPhone and see, if all your chats were restored

Only if that works you should move your main WhatsApp accout to the iPhone
