WhatsApp launches genius new feature but only SAMSUNG owners can use it for now
WHATSAPP has launched a genius new feature – but it’s only available on Samsung phones.
The Facebook-owned app has been under pressure for years to let users move their chat histories across platforms – between Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.
