Telegram has added the capacity to import your chat history from WhatsApp, which means you won’t lose past discussions on the off chance that you need to switch informing administrations. On iOS the component showed up with rendition 7.4, delivered yesterday and spotted by 9to5Mac.
Telegram has in this manner reported that the element is likewise available for Android. Close by WhatsApp, talk chronicles from Line and KakaoTalk can likewise be imported, as per Telegram’s iOS changelog. We’ve checked that on iOS you can bring talks from WhatsApp into the most recent rendition (7.4.1) of Telegram and proceed with the discussion, inasmuch as each WhatsApp client has a Telegram account.
The expansion of the feature comes as Telegram is detailing enormous expansions in client numbers, with the help presently bragging more than 500 million dynamic clients around the world. The reason gives off an impression of being WhatsApp’s new protection strategy, which incited protection worries about the Facebook-claimed informing application (WhatsApp later postponed the presentation of the new arrangement, and demands it won’t influence the security of buyer talks or profile information). For clients escaping from WhatsApp to Telegram, having the option to take their visit narratives with them implies one less hindrance to switching.
The import process works away at a chat-by-chat basis, yet seems to work for both individual and gathering discussions, in any event with WhatsApp. To import a visit from Facebook’s informing administration on iOS, open the significant discussion, and tap the gathering or contact name from the highest point of the talk to open its information screen. From that point, the “Export Chat” choice opens the iOS Share Sheet, where you’ll see the choice to choose Telegram. At that point, simply pick a Telegram talk to bring the messages into.
Then on Android, Telegram noticed that the WhatsApp “Export Chat” option can be found by tapping the three-spot button on the upper right of a chat, and afterward choosing “More.”
Any messages brought into visits have a little “Imported” mark on them taking note of when they were initially sent, and when they were brought into Telegram, and messages are obvious to all talk members. You have the choice of bringing in WhatsApp talk chronicles with or without their pictures. Imported messages show up in the request wherein they are imported, as opposed to in the request they were initially sent.
Wire’s help for imported chat histories shows up close by a modest bunch of other personal satisfaction upgrades for the informing administration, such as having the option to change volumes for singular voice talk members, or announcing “fake groups or channels” that are endeavoring to imitate well known individuals or organizations.
