Many users have already started switching to the Signal app, which was recently considered the best free app on the App Store and Google Play Store in India, bypassing WhatsApp.
Here’s how to switch to Signal groups from WhatsApp groups as presented by the Signal application developers who have published a very easy method that allows easy and simple transition in a few steps:
A lot of people have been asking how to move their group chats from other apps to Signal, and Signal group links are a great way to get started. Drop a group link into your former chat app of choice like you’re dropping the mic on the way out. pic.twitter.com/q49DeZufBG

Install the Signal app on your phone, and it is available free of charge for iPhone and iPad users in the App Store, and for Android users in Google Play.
After installing the app on your phone, open it, then tap the three dots in the top right corner of the app screen. From the menu that appears, click Create a Group. Give a name to the created group and add the required contacts.
Now open the group that you created, then tap the three dots on the top right of the app screen. From the menu that appears, click on the “Settings” option.
In the window that appears, click on the “Group Link” option.
Toggle the button next to the group link option on.
In the same window, after switching the button, click on the Share option below.
In WhatsApp, open the group you want and paste the link you copied into the text box.
Now anyone with access to this link can directly join the group you created in Signal.
Note: The group creator can stop sharing the link at any time by toggling the previous button to Off. In addition, you can share the link in any other messaging application and invite others to join the Signal application.
