"Move your message history from other apps such as WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk to Telegram," the notification read.
The update also provides additional privacy, as well as new features such as volume adjustments in voice chats.
"Delete messages, groups you created, secret chats, and call history for all sides, without a trace. ... Report fake groups or channels impersonating famous people or organizations by opening their Profile," the update description added.
In mid-January, Telegram founder Pavel Durov said that more than 25 million users had joined the messenger within a few days after WhatsApp's announcement, stating that "we may be witnessing the largest digital migration in human history."
