Steps to follow while importing WhatsApp chat history into Telegram for Android and iPhone

WhatsApp’s backup and restore feature is exceptionally restricted. It doesn’t work between Android and iPhone without a third-party tool. In any case, Telegram has an import feature that allows you to transfer conversations from other messaging apps like WhatsApp, Line, and KaKaoTalk on a per-chat basis. While this sounds dreary, it takes care of business. In this guide, we will be concentrating on WhatsApp.

When the chat is imported, the messages will appear for both parties. The imported messages will be added to the bottom of the chat, however, they will carry their original timestamp.

You should simply export the chat from WhatsApp and import it into Telegram. Here’s how it works on Android and iPhone.
