WhatsApp chats can now migrate into Telegram

Easy way to migrate your whatsapp chat history to telegram

Telegram and Signal are reaping the benefits of the recent controversies against WhatsApp. The apps have gained several hundred thousand users over the last couple of weeks, and their growth doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. In a bid to attract even more WhatsApp users, these apps have been working on bringing new features to get at par with the Facebook-owned messenger. For instance, Signal recently added custom wallpaper and animated sticker support to the app to offer new users a more familiar experience. Now, Telegram is adding a new tool in version 7.4 that will help users easily migrate their WhatsApp chat history over to the app.

This feature was included in the Telegram 7.4 update to iOS app stores, but the next update, 7.4.1, reportedly omitted the migration tool. Telegram’s new update comes as people concerned about WhatsApp’s new privacy policy are increasingly switching to apps such as Telegram and Signal. The update brings a new import feature that will help users migrate their chat history from other apps, including WhatsApp, Line, and KakaoTalk, to Telegram. However, the migration tool isn’t available for all iPhone users just yet. As 9to5Mac points out, Telegram seems to have removed mentions of the migration tool in a subsequent update, suggesting that it’s still a work in progress.

To bring a chat on WhatsApp to Telegram, you must first update the Telegram app. Then open the chat to be brought to Telegram in WhatsApp and click on the More option in the top three-dot menu on the top right. When you click on the Export Chat option, WhatsApp will then create a backup of the entire conversation in the form of a ZIP file. select Telegram from the options that appear. Then the telegram chat list will open.

WhatsApp Chat Click on whose chat you want to import into. If he does not appear in the chat list, search for his name in the search box at the top and click on it. Clicking on the Import button in the next window will bring up the telegram chat. Although Telegram hasn’t officially announced the new migration tool, some users have access to it on the latest version of the app.
