How Do I Transfer My Line Chat From iPhone to Android?

Android, Android Transfer

Are you planning to switch from an iPhone to an Android device? One of the challenges that many users face when making this transition is transferring their Line chats.

Line is a popular messaging app that allows users to keep in touch with their friends and family, and it can be quite inconvenient to lose all those conversations when switching devices. Fortunately, there are a few methods you can use to transfer your Line chat from iPhone to Android. In this article, we will explore these methods and guide you through the process.

Method 1: Using the “Line Transfer” Feature

If you’re using Line version 10.14.0 or later on your iPhone, you can take advantage of the built-in “Line Transfer” feature to transfer your chats to your new Android device.

  1. Make sure you have installed Line on both your iPhone and Android device.
  2. Open Line on your iPhone and go to the “Settings” menu by tapping on the gear icon at the top left corner of the screen.
  3. In the settings menu, tap on “Account” and then select “Line Transfer”.
  4. Follow the instructions on-screen to create a QR code.
  5. Open Line on your Android device and tap on “Start” in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  6. Select “Transfer using QR code” and scan the QR code displayed on your iPhone.
  7. Wait for the transfer process to complete. Once it’s done, all your Line chats should be available on your Android device.

Method 2: Using Email or iCloud Backup (for older versions of Line)

If you’re using an older version of Line that doesn’t have the “Line Transfer” feature, you can still transfer your chats using email or iCloud backup. Here’s how:

  1. Open Line on your iPhone and go to the “Settings” menu.
  2. Tap on “Chats” and then select “Backup and Restore Chat History”.
  3. Choose either “Backup All” or “Backup to Email”. If you choose the email option, make sure to enter a valid email address.
  4. Wait for the backup process to complete. Once it’s done, you will receive an email with a file attached.
  5. Save the backup file to your Android device.
  6. Install Line on your Android device and sign in using your Line account.
  7. Go to the “Settings” menu, tap on “Chats”, and then select “Import Chat History”.
  8. Select the backup file that you saved earlier and wait for the import process to complete.


Please note that when using Method 2, only text messages and stickers will be transferred. Other media files such as photos, videos, and voice messages won’t be included in the backup file. If you want to transfer these files as well, it’s recommended to use Method 1 or manually transfer them separately.

With these methods at your disposal, you can easily transfer your Line chat from iPhone to Android without losing any important conversations. Whether you prefer using the built-in “Line Transfer” feature or rely on email or iCloud backup, make sure to follow the instructions carefully for a successful transfer. Enjoy seamless communication with Line on your new Android device!
