She added platform Telegram is the ability to import chats from WhatsApp, which means that you will not lose previous conversations if you want to switch messaging services.
And in iOS, the feature arrived with Version 7.4However, it does not appear that the update has reached the Android OS.
Although the platform has not yet officially announced the new migration tool, some users can access it through the latest version of the application.
Besides WhatsApp, you can also import chats from Line and KakaoTalk, according to the change history in Telegram.
For users switching from WhatsApp to Telegram, the ability to transfer chats with them means easing barriers to transmission.
The import process works with individual and group conversations on WhatsApp
To import a chat from the WhatsApp service, open the relevant conversation, and click the name of the group or contact to open its information screen.
The option to export the chat opens the iOS sharing page, where you see the option to select Telegram, and then you only have to choose the Telegram chat to import the messages to it.
Imported messages have a small “Imported” label on them indicating the date they were originally sent, and when they were brought to Telegram, and the messages are visible to all chat participants.
You have the option to import WhatsApp chat records with or without pictures, and the imported messages appear in the order in which they were imported, not in the order they were originally sent.
Telegram support for imported chats goes hand in hand with a few other improvements to the messaging service, such as: the ability to adjust the volume for participants in one-on-one voice chat, or report fake groups or channels trying to impersonate people or famous organizations.
The addition of this feature comes at a time when Telegram reports huge increases in the number of users, as the service now includes more than 500 million active users around the world.
Telegram is reaping the benefits of the recent backlash against WhatsApp, as it gained several hundreds of thousands of users over the past two weeks, and its growth does not seem to be stalling anytime soon.

WhatsApp delayed the introduction of the new policy to moderate a reaction, insisting it would not affect the security of consumer conversations or profile data.
