To import a chat from Facebooks messaging service, open the appropriate conversation, and tap the group or contact name from the top of the chat to open its details screen. Just pick a Telegram chat to import the messages into.
Any messages imported into chats have a small “Imported” label on them keeping in mind when they were originally sent, and when they were brought into Telegram, and messages show up to all chat participants. You have the option of importing WhatsApp chat histories with or without their images. Imported messages appear in the order in which they are imported, instead of in the order they were originally sent.
Telegrams assistance for imported chat histories shows up along with a handful of other quality of life improvements for the messaging service, like being able to change volumes for specific voice chat individuals, or reporting “fake groups or channels” that are trying to impersonate well-known people or companies.

Imports work on a chat-by-chat basis.

Telegram has actually included the ability to import your chat history from WhatsApp, indicating you wont lose previous discussions if you wish to change messaging services. On iOS the feature arrived with variation 7.4, launched the other day and spotted by 9to5Mac, but the update does not appear to be live yet on Android. Together with WhatsApp, chat histories from Line and KakaoTalk can likewise be imported, according to Telegrams changelog. Weve confirmed that you can import chats from WhatsApp into the most recent variation (7.4.1) of Telegram and continue the discussion, so long as each WhatsApp user has a Telegram account.
The addition of the function comes as Telegram is reporting big increases in user numbers, with the service now boasting over 500 million active users worldwide. The cause appears to be WhatsApps brand-new privacy policy, which prompted privacy issues about the Facebook-owned messaging app (WhatsApp later delayed the introduction of the brand-new policy, and insists it will not impact the security of consumer chats or profile information). For users leaping ship from WhatsApp to Telegram, having the ability to take their chat histories with them means one fewer barrier to switching.
