Description from store Perhaps, many of us like Telegram messenger and use it for conversations with friends. However, we were a bit disappointed by the absence of any sort of easy-accessible "Save Conversation" feature in the messenger. Therefore, we've written a Chrome extension for it!

  • (2019-06-22) Omisile Kehinde Olugbenga: I think you guys have done us a world of good by thinking of this extension. I love to create analytics for chat groups, which was pretty easy with WhatsApp but it was very difficult with Telegram. This extension has saved me several hours of data wrangling....
  • (2019-06-13) Swapnil Bagul: Thank you Please make sure adblock, popup blocker is disabled. Working 100%
  • (2019-02-12) Luuk: Just works. Even very big chats and downloads the chat in the background while you do other stuff.
  • (2019-01-17) Ivan Popov: Без проблем за 70 секунд собрал переписку за полтора месяца. Спасибо!
  • (2018-09-29) Angel Naling: Very great extension. Helped me a lot. Would be nice to be able to save it in another file format.
  • (2018-09-16) Willem Kat: Wauw!!! Werkt perfect.
  • (2018-06-28) Shiva Kumar: Good
  • (2018-04-16) Gaurav ntpc: GOOD WAY
  • (2018-04-13) Data Dachshund: Thank you so much for this plugin. I downloaded four years worth of messages today. By they way: Could you explain how you retrieve all the messages? Do you use some kind of Telegram API or how does it work (without scrolling)?
  • (2018-03-28) Alex Ikon: Finally a good way to export history. Looking forward to see file export also
  • (2018-02-10) Andrey Martynenko: Супер! Спасло пол дня времени!!
  • (2018-01-08) Mark Leci: Agree with other reviews - definitely too slow to be practical. Viewing 1000 messages took 24 seconds, as soon as I changed to 2000 it took.. well I waited ten minutes then uninstalled. Useless.
  • (2018-01-08) محمدحسین تکین: please consider it Arabic languages and ... do not know. Does not save as PDF. Do not display photos in text.
  • (2017-12-22) Fa Rid: I dont get all these low rating reviews. There is no official way to export telegram chat history and this is the best and easiest to use I've come around! Good job!
  • (2017-11-27) Giulio Petrucci: Lancio il backup e la finestra che indica lo stato scompare se la tab di chrome perde il focus. Inoltre sembra non renderizare le risposte ai messaggi. Non è da una stella, ma nemmeno da tre.
  • (2017-11-03) Ironclad Ken: Only seems to load the messages to the beginning of the month. After the first few hundred messages, loading more takes forever and takes around 20 minutes to load another 100. When I save the text, it just saves starting from the current month and the file contains paragraphs repeated over and over again. Complete waste of time. No responses or help on the issues page either.
  • (2017-10-13) Максим: Глючит: при выборе, например, 100 сообщений - то быстро загружает, то задумается на много минут, останавливаю. Окно нужно держать в фокусе, иначе слетает загрузка. Заставка на экране также сбивает загрузку, не говоря о переключении на другую вкладку/приложение. Ждал 20 минут (выбрал all), процесс не заканчивался, и я хотел сохранить что загрузилось, но такой функции нет, только close.
  • (2017-09-02) Dario Bonaretti: Not useful if you want to scrape >50 messages, and you won't be able to use your computer while the scraper is running because anything you do will shut down the scraper. Incredibly slow, to the point I am not even sure that it's actually loading new messages (ran for >2mins and still couldn't scrape 100 messages).
  • (2017-08-20) Alexey Lisov: Cannot save more than 2k messages
  • (2017-08-11) Emre Güllüce: Super!
  • (2017-06-26) Ilia Nedoluzhko: I tried to save a chat with 10 short messages but tired of waiting.
  • (2017-06-20) Kuldeep Sisodia: amazing
  • (2017-05-25) Fereidoon Azadmanesh: Very Useful for saving text, but not for photos...
  • (2017-03-23) Zubin SP: I have been trying since 2 days now, does not load messages beyond the default loaded. There is a countdown at the bottom...like a timer....

  • (2018-08-18, v:2.2.7) Moppity: downloading
    Am not sure why, but when i try to download there's a time stamp, but no texts appear on it so i get the impression nothing is downloading (even after leaving it there for 5 mins). there's no blue tick, and everytime i switch windows it closes & restarts. Anything i can do about this? (:

  • (2018-05-05, v:2.2.7) Data Dachshund: Interested in collaboration?
    Hello, I am currently developing a platform where you can analyze your telegram chat history (when did you send how many messages, which week day, what are the moste common words/emojis, who writes how much,...) and I used the backup retrieved through your extension as basis. Would you have some time to explain to me how you managed to backup the logs? Do you think there is any easier way that people could do it? Kind regards Thank you

  • (2018-04-01, v:2.2.5) Todd Andrews: Date and time format
    Hi, 1. How do I change the date format from dd.mm.yyyy to something else, say, yyyy.mm.dd? 2. How do I change the separator from a period to some other character? 3. How can I set the time format to be 12-hour with AM/PM instead of 24-hour? 4. Any chance you could allow C language style strftime() formatting for maximum flexibility?
  • (2018-03-27, v:2.2.5) Issues with Save to Text
    Starting about a week ago, the save to text button no longer works for me. I click on it, and nothing happens. Has anyone else been having this issue?
  • (2018-02-25, v:2.2.5) Tea G: Taking forever to render as text
    The icon is now the normal one, indicating that everything has been downloaded already. However. it's been running for nearly 9h since it first finished downloading all the text, and is still rendering everything. Since it is already downloaded, couldn't I just download everything directly? I also wonder if this could have been caused by new messages in the chat (which aren't that many; less than 20 new lines).
  • (2018-02-13, v:2.2.4) haloswarm: Cannot get all my messages large chat
    I have a chat that's almost 200k messages and sometimes when it loads it all the save as text option only saves not even half and it stops at a point leaving me missing chunks of my history.
