Things to remember
1. Note that you will have to export chats individually and this will work for WhatsApp groups as well. Messages will be imported into the current day but will also include their original timestamps. This means you will not have to worry about incorrect dates and times of your chats.
2. All members of the chat on Telegram will see the messages.
3. When you move messages and media files from WhatsApp to Telegram don’t occupy extra space.
4. The good thing is that the chat gets exported for both parties– you and the person with whom you were earlier chatting on WhatsApp.
