New Delhi: Telegram, the messaging app which grew with over 100 new million users within the month of January amid WhatsApp’s privacy policy controversy, has offered its users to import their chat history to its platform from apps like WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk. Telegram has crossed 600 million users benchmark so far.

This feature will not only work for individual chats and group chats but will also transfer photos as well as video calls.

Telegram in an official statement said that Messages will be imported into the current day but will also include their original timestamps.

“All members of the chat on Telegram will see the messages,” the messaging app company said.

“With this update, you get even more control: secret chats, groups you created and call history can now also be deleted for all sides at any time”.

Meanwhile, the messages and media you move don’t need to occupy extra space.

“Older apps make you store all data on your device – but Telegram can take up virtually no space while letting you access all your messages, photos and videos anytime you need them,” the company added.

The developers also announced improved chats where the users can adjust the volume of individual participants to manage microphone levels.

“Adjustments made by group admins are applied for all listeners,” Telegram announced.

A new feature will also enable you to check which of your groups have active Voice Chats from the top of the Call History page.

Telegram also improvised its audio player where when a track is played, you can tap the author name in the player to see their tracks from all your chats.

“If you need to skip ahead or repeat something you missed, press and hold on the Next and Previous buttons to fast-forward and rewind”.

Telegram became a new sensation with millions of users switching to it after WhatsApp’s new Terms of Service and Privacy Policy trigged a fresh data sharing debate.
