Chapter in this post:
WhatsApp has reactivated the "Export Chat" function for users in Germany. That means you can easily summarize and save the entire WhatsApp chat history as a .zip file. It can be displayed with various tools on the Mac or PC or transferred to other messenger apps (if the corresponding functions are available). You can find a more comprehensive look at computer apps here: Export WhatsApp chats and contacts. Information on Telegram's efforts to import chats, are available here.
Admittedly, I did not find out myself that WhatsApp has allowed the export of chats in Germany again. I am through one Post stumbled upon the information on the ApfelPage. But when trying it out on the iPhone it worked. Therefore, here are the corresponding instructions (tested under iOS 14.4):
You can save the chat as a .zip archive locally on the device, load it into the iCloud, send it by e-mail and so on. In addition, you can choose whether only text messages or also media (pictures, videos, voice messages) should be saved as part of the output.
Due to new terms and conditions that are soon to come into force, many people are switching from WhatsApp to the various alternatives. For example, are multiplied WhatsApp alternatives such as Signal, Telegram and Threema used. Since there are currently no options there to import chats from other apps, the newly acquired export function does not bring that much to the Facebook offer. However, you can now save your chat history and group discussions and keep them deleting WhatsApp out - for reading, shaming, blaspheming and whatever you do with it.
