Default Whatsapp backup from Android to WP

I'm sending my HTC One in for a warranty claim and would like to know if you can transfer whatsapp backups from an Android device to a WP one. The 1020 is a choice I have when signing up for a new phone plan (which I will be doing soon) so was thinking if I should get this while my HTC is in the shop.

Main priority is being able to restore whatsapp messages from my Android to WP. Any ideas if this is possible? I understand that WP has no file manager so I'm guessing it's not actually possible?

As mentioned by WP Central the next version of WhatsApp for WP will be able to do this.
Must be available for download soon.

I can't find that specific post. There is a post about account migration, but that is not what I was after. Account migration ports your whatsapp account to a different number, but what I was looking for was the ability to backup on an Android, restore on WP, then back up on WP and move that back to Android.
