Chats that have been imported to Telegram show the original time stamp, along with the text, “imported”


Telegram has released an update for its app on iOS that includes a migration tool to let users import chats from WhatsApp and other apps. The mention of the new tool is part of the Telegram 7.4 update. But another update (Telegram 7.4.1) released soon after does not include the mention of the new migration tool. However, in our testing, users were able to transfer their chat history from WhatsApp even after installing the 7.4.1 version of Telegram. This could be good news for people who want to move away from WhatsApp after its contentious privacy policy changes.

The release notes of Telegram of version 7.4 on iOS includes the mention of the tool: ‘Move your chat history from other apps (WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk) to Telegram'.

Telegram then almost immediately released version 7.4.1 for iOS, removing the mention of the migration tool. However, after updating to Telegram version 7.4.1, we were still able to use the tool to migrate chats from WhatsApp to Telegram. The process is fairly easy.
