Step 1: On your iPhone, go to Settings >> Chat Settings >> Chat History >> Email Chat and select the chats you want to email.

Step 2: As you select the chats, there will be a pop up come that says “Attaching media will generate a larger email message”. You can choose either with or without media.

Step 3: Now proceed, and enter the email address to which you want to send the selected chat messages. Possibly, enter the email address that you are going to use on your Android phone.

Step 4: leave the iPhone, and on your Android device, access that email account. You will see the email that you just have sent. The iPhone WhatsApp text messages that are attached to the email will be in the TXT format which is readable.

So, technically you can read those emails, but they won’t be visible within the WhatsApp app on your Android phone.

However, you will still have the backup of those chat messages that you can read whenever you want in your email.
