How to transfer WhatsApp group chats to Signal

The recent step taken by the WhatsApp application, related to updating the terms of service and privacy policy, to better integrate with other Facebook products, and to collect users’ financial data, found an attack and strong opposition from everyone.

This move has encouraged many entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley by encouraging their followers to switch to the Signal app, including (Elon Musk), CEO of Tesla, and Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter.

Indeed, many users began to make this switch, which made Signal recently the best free app on the App Store and Google Play stores in India, overtaking WhatsApp.

However, switching applications often involves the dilemma of converting WhatsApp group conversations to the new application, but the developers of Signal have published a very easy method that allows you to transfer WhatsApp group conversations easily and in a few steps.
