It’s easy to export your entire history from WhatsApp. It only takes a few fingerprints on the screen.
- Do you have a iPhone open the contacts page, scroll down to Export Chat and then select Telegram from the share menu.
- With a Android phone open the chat, press the three dots, select More and then Export Chat.
Once you have exported the chat history and imported it into Telegram, it is saved in the cloud. Encrypted of course, so no one can see your messages.
Telegram values your privacy
For Telegram and its users, privacy is paramount. Since two years ago, it is possible to delete messages for all participants in a conversation. Today it is also possible to delete secret conversations, entire groups and call logs.
Another recently added improvement is optimized voice chats. You can now see who is active receiving the call history. And also fine-tune the volume for each participant in a voice chat if you want.
