Instant messaging services are legion today. Each with their own particularities. What if the solution was to aggregate the most popular?
Instant messaging services are no longer counted today as there are so many on the market. If the situation was more or less frozen until recently, the announcement of a profound change in the conditions of use of personal data of WhatsApp created a stir. And the competition intends to take advantage of it. This is the case of Telegram.
A conversation import tool previewed in Telegram
WhatsApp is currently facing a real exodus of its users. A movement initiated after changes desired by Facebook vis-à-vis the management of privacy, and a rather deplorable communication, it must be admitted. In any case, many users have started looking for alternatives. Telegram has long been a part of this list but these recent announced changes have clearly boosted the platform’s popularity.
before quickly disappearing
That being said, we do not decide like that, overnight to switch to another platform. What about his contacts? From his old conversations? It would be very unfortunate if these discussions were deleted. The good news today is that Telegram will be able to help you with this. In a report from 9to5Mac, we learn that Telegram recently received an update including a new import tool.
This tool allows users to import conversations from other instant messaging applications – as long as this application offers the ability to export conversations, of course -. This means that your conversation history with your loved ones will not be lost and you will not have to start all over from scratch. Which is one of the main reasons people are reluctant to quit WhatsApp.
That being said, 9to5Mac states that this update was quickly followed by another update and the latter removed this functionality. Why ? Hard to say. Perhaps it is simply because the option is not yet fully completed. In any case, this is a good thing, Telegram users should benefit greatly when it is rolled out to everyone.
