How to transfer chats from WhatsApp to Telegram?

Here is a simple process of how you can make the switch from WhatsApp To Telegram in a few simple steps

Have you ever thought of switching your data from one social media app to another because you like the features more on another one, but couldn’t because of lack of functionality? There’s no need to worry as Telegram has got you covered when it released the feature in its latest update where you can actually move your chats from WhatsApp to Telegram.

Some recent changes in WhatsApp’s privacy policy have also provoked the users to make a switch from WhatsApp to Telegram. Because users are making this switch, Telegram became the most downloaded app globally during the month of January and came on top as per latest data from Sensor Tower, with 63 million installs whereas WhatsApp fell to the 5th number.

As per the data, the largest installs were from India at 24 percent while Indonesia came in second with 10 percent of the total downloads.
