"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is not possible to do a migration now.

You need to wait for a new update for a software (as shown in the link below) to be installed in Windows PC or Mac PC and transfer the chat logs from Android phone to PC and from PC to iPhone X.

The above software will work up to iOS 10, but iPhone X comes with iOS 11 and will not work at the time being.

If you want to do migration now, you need to borrow / buy a second hand iPhone 5 with iOS 10 and use the above software to migrate from your Android phone to iPhone 5 first and backup the chat log to iCloud and restore the chat log from iCloud to iPhone X.

Your link is only a joke.

Have you tried it yourself?

For Android, you can only backup/restore your chat log via Google drive whereas, for iPhone, you can only backup/restore your chat log via iCloud.

You cannot move/migrate the chat log from Google drive to iCloud or vice versa.

"Note: You cannot migrate your messages across different types of phone."

Email chat history is NOT to migrate the chat logs from an Android phone to iPhone.

Maybe you can use Coolmuster mobile transfer to help you transfer the whatsapp chat history from android phone to iphone X. Usually, you just need to connect both of them to computer, open the program.

There is no free solution and you need a computer to help you to do the transfer of the chat logs of WhatsApp.
