Why whatsapp data is erased when transferring WhatsApp?

Currently, for WhatsApp transfer from Android to iOS devices, we can select to keep the WhatsApp data on the target phone. But it will overwrite the WhatsApp data if the target phone is Android or if you want to transfer from iOS to iOS.

In most cases, users need to transfer WhatsApp chats when they are switching to a new phone.So there is no data on the new phone to be overwritten. But since there are some users need to keep the data on the target Android phone, our RD team has already been working on this and this feature will be available soon.
