WhatsApp has great features that allow you to back up your chat logs online, but you can’t access and move your data between iOS and Android.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a cross-platform migration, so this is subject to change even if the feature is not yet available to beta channel users.
🔄 WhatsApp to allow chat history migration between iOS and Android in a future update!
Finally you will be able to transfer your chats between different platforms natively!
It's under development and it will likely be released when multi device is out.https://t.co/kUOmKTrUIX

There are no plans to add this, but according to the source, anyone with the latest WhatsApp version on the App Store or TestFlight can see the image below.
According to WhatsApp, the main issue for enabling this feature is “difference in data format”. Android backups are sent to Google Drive and Apple users chat on iCloud.
We hope this is resolved and you will be able to migrate without losing all your valuable photos and chats.
