  • Users can now transfer their WhatsApp history to Telegram

  • Android feature will be available soon

The user migration from WhatsApp courtesy of its latest improvements to the privacy policy has been a boost for alternative messaging applications such as Telegram. Telegram also allows leaving WhatsApp users to switch their chat history over to its app to further enhance its popularity. This may be the one feature that will tip the Facebook-owned site over WhatsApp users who are always on the fence about leaving.


The new message history import tool was launched by Telegram yesterday on its iOS app. It came bundled with the app’s version 7.4. The version’s update notes read as follows:

Telegram WhatsApp Message History Import Update 379x675 1

Telegram soon released another version 7.4.1 update that removed the migration tool’s name. You’ll still be willing, however, to import chats from WhatsApp.

How to export WhatsApp chats to Telegram

You will need the current versions of both apps to move your WhatsApp chat history to Telegram. If you have that, you can follow the below steps to import your chats to Telegram from WhatsApp.

  • Open WhatsApp and tap the chat you would like to export to 
  • Head to the Contact Info menu and choose ‘Chat Export’ 
  • Now you’ll see “Attach Media” or “Without Media” options. 
  • Choose your desired choice 
  • Now, from the Sharing menu, choose Telegram and pick the contact you want to delegate the imported chat to 
  • Now you can see a prompt for important messages. Choose ‘Import’
