What's great about WhatsApp is that it allows you to back up your chat history at any time, including chat messages, contacts, pictures, and media files sent and received via this platform. You can choose to back up daily, weekly or even monthly. Of course, you can choose not to back up.

Once the backup is complete, you can follow the steps below to restore WhatsApp backup to your Android phone from iCloud:
Step 1. Install and run WhatsApp on your Android device. Log in with the same account you used on your iOS device.
Step 2. Under normal circumstances, WhatsApp will pop up a "Message Backup Found" prompt to ask if you need to restore the chat history from the backup.
Step 3. Select the "Restore" button to restore the backed up WhatsApp history to this Android device. Be sure to follow the instructions on the interface carefully.
The second option you can try is using a professional phone transfer tool called iCloud to Android Transfer. It is an application designed to transfer all types of data from iCloud to Android.
