Any way to copy Android WhatsApp Messages to iPhone?

Purchased a brand new iPhone 7 and stuck on transferring data to the new phone from LG G4. Apple Move to iOS app can't help in my case. What is the correct solution out there? appreciated.

There certainly wasn't when I moved last year - android backs up to google drive and apple backs up to icloud.
Ended up extracting mine and saving them in Evernote to keep history.

WhatsApp has a native cloud backup option. Enable that on the Android device, allow it time to backup and the messages will be restored when you install WhatsApp on the iPhone.

Edit: It's under Settings > Chats > Chat Backup:

Android backup can be only restored on Android devices.

What I got from WhatsApp official is that they only offer the way to transfer messages between phones with same OS. If you switched to a new os, then you should figure out by your own. I searched in Google and sorted it out with this tutorial. You have to install third-party app to do that. Just a remind.

Apart from Move to iOS, Mobile Transfer tool should be the best choice. It is a fast and efficient transfer data between android and iPhone . It  not only allows you transfer photos, videos, music, contacts and SMS from Android to iOS,as well as  Android to Android, iOS to Android, iOS to iOS.

It's easy to copy LG G4 WhatsApp Messages to iPhone 7 by using a mobile phone transfer program. It allows us directly transfer data between mobile phones on computer via USB Connecting cord, no matter what OS they are running on. Just search the details online by yourself.
