Telegram will soon allow users to transfer WhatsApp chats to its platform. The messaging app has been a popular pick, alongside Signal, as a WhatsApp alternative after the Facebook-owned app announced a new privacy policy. As users shift to Telegram, the messaging app is working on introducing a feature that lets them transfer their WhatsApp messages to Telegram. The feature was quickly rolled back. However, 9to5Mac was able to try the feature before it was taken down.

Telegram, earlier today, released a new feature on its iOS app on the Apple App Store. However, for reasons unknown, the update was rolled back. 9to5Mac managed to try the feature before the app released another update that removed the chat migration feature.

The Telegram 7.4 patch notes cited that users could migrate their WhatsApp chats to Telegram. The feature will also allow users to transfer chats from Line, KakaoTalk, etc.

The following update removes the mention of chat migration. This means that Telegram is still working on the feature. We can expect a public announcement once the feature is ready for a wider release.
