Many users switched from this messenger to Telegram, the audience of which, due to such an event, began to grow rapidly, especially in the USA and Europe, where previously most of the population used WhatsApp. Against the background of this state of affairs, the creators of the popular communication service have added a new function to it that allows you to transfer all personal correspondence from one messenger to another in a few clicks, and this can be done on various models of smartphones running Android and iPhone operating systems. Previously, it was not possible to do anything like this, but in the latest version of the messenger, a similar opportunity appeared.
To transfer the correspondence from WhatsApp to Telegram, you need to update both applications to the latest version through the Google Play store and the App Store. After this is done, you need to start WhatsApp and open the desired chat, messages from which you want to transfer to another service. Without opening the chat, you need to swipe to the left, then click on the “More” button and select the “Export chat” option. In the window that appears, you need to select Telegram to open the exported chat with it. When you open the messenger into which private messages are transferred, you must select a specific interlocutor with whom the imported correspondence will contact. It can be either a user with a phone number or with a specific nickname.
The process of transferring the correspondence can take from several seconds to several minutes, depending on its volume and the power of the mobile device. This whole operation takes place without an Internet connection, so you can perform it at any time. In a similar way, you can transfer both personal and group chat, but in the second case, you must be the administrator of this chat. To export a private chat with someone, you must first ensure that the other person adds you to their list of contacts. If the data was transferred successfully, a window will appear with the corresponding inscription. All migrated messages from someone are marked “imported”, that is, they are marked as imported.
Telegram currently supports the function of transferring correspondence from WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk, but in the future, the developers are going to add support for other popular instant messengers. Earlier, Beeper was presented and launched – this is a special new service for combining WhatsApp, Viber, iMessage, Telegram and Skype into one single messenger.
