Lahore, 28th January: Messaging app Telegram now allows users to import their WhatsApp chats.
Telegram Messenger has decided to allow a key function to gain more users in the days to come.
Users on the instant messaging app now have the option to import their WhatsApp chats to Telegram.
The move comes after the users wanted to ditch their WhatsApp owing to recent privacy concerns but at the same time, they want to keep their WhatsApp chat history.
According to Webatinfo.com, chat history from other apps other than WhatsApp can also be imported to Telegram.
According to information from the Geo News, the steps required for the transfer of WhatsApp chat to your Telegram are as follow:
The first step requires exporting your chats from WhatsApp from the chat actions options.
After selecting Telegram from the iOS Share Sheet, it will ask where you want to import messages to. You can choose your own chat (saved messages), a new group or any other chat.
After finishing the above two steps, your imported messages and media (if you chose to import media from WhatsApp) can be seen in the Telegram chat that you selected.
It is to be noted that all messages that you import from WhatsApp or other apps will be marked in Telegram as ‘Imported’, which were previously marked as ‘Forwarded’.
As per reports, this feature has only been offered to iPhone users and is available on the App Store.
However, according to the Webatinfo.com, an update for Android is soon expected as well.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Telegram messaging app has now crossed 500 million active users with 25 million joining the app in the last 72 hours.
