How to transfer WhatsApp group conversations to Signal


WhatsApp's recent move to update the terms of service and privacy policy and better integrate with facebook's other product range, and to collect users' financial statements has found a strong attack and opposition from everyone.

The move has encouraged many Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to encourage their followers to switch to Signal, including Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, and Jack Dorsey, Ceo of Twitter.

Indeed, many users have started making this switch, which has recently made Signal the best free app in the App Store and Google Play in India, surpassing WhatsApp.

However, switching apps often involves the dilemma of converting WhatsApp group conversations into a new app, but Signal developers have deployed a very easy way to easily transfer WhatsApp group conversations in a few steps.

Here's how to transfer WhatsApp group conversations to Signal:

  • Install the Signal app in your phone, which is available free of charge for iPhone and iPad users in the App Store, and for Android users in Google Play.
  • After installing the Signal app on your phone, open it, then press the three points at the top right corner of the app screen.
  • From the list that appears to you, click on the Create a Group option.
  • Give a name to the group that was created and add the required contacts.
  • Now open the group you created, then press the three dots at the top right of the app screen.
  • From the menu that appears to you, click on settings.
  • In the window that shows you, click on the Group Link option.
  • Switch the button next to the Group Link option to play mode.
  • In the same window after you switch the button, press the Share option below.
  • In WhatsApp, open the group you want and then paste the link you copied into the writing box.

  • Now anyone with access to this link can join directly the group you created in Signal.

Note: The group creator can stop sharing the link at any time by switching the previous button to offsetting mode, plus you can share the link in any other messaging app and invite others to join the Signal app.
