Migrating data is usually the hardest part you need to do when you switch to new phones, especially from one OS to another.

How to Transfer Line Chats from iPhone to Android

Officially, Line mentions on their website that they do not allow transfers of any kind of content for cross-platform devices. What that means is you cannot transfer your chat history from an iPhone to an Android device and vice versa.

However, there is a workaround that allows you to transfer your messages from your iPhone to your Android device with a few easy steps. It uses one of the official features in the Line app and helps you finish the data migration process on your device.

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1. Launch the Line chat app from the springboard of your iPhone.

Step 2. When the app launches, find and tap on the chat room that you would like to transfer to your Android device. Then, tap on V at the top-right corner and select the option that says Settings to open the settings menu.
