Telegram


Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security. It’s superfast, simple and free.

With Telegram, you can create group chats with up to 200 people so you can stay connected with everyone at once. Plus, you can share videos up to 1GB, send multiple photos from the web, and forward any media you receive in an instant. All your messages are in the cloud, so you can easily access them from any of your devices.

For those interested in maximum privacy, we've added Secret Chats, featuring end-to-end encryption to ensure that a message can only be read by its intended recipient. When it comes to Secret Chats, nothing is logged on our servers and you can automatically program the messages to self-destruct from both devices so there is never any record of it.

We built Telegram to make messaging safe again so you can take back your right to privacy.

Why Switch to Telegram?

FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market because it uses a decentralized infrastructure with data centers positioned around the globe to connect people to the closest possible server.

SECURE: Security flaws in popular apps like WhatsApp have gotten a lot of bad press recently, so we made it our mission to provide the best security on the market.

CLOUD STORAGE: Never lose your data again! Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for all your Telegram messages and media that you can securely access from multiple devices.

GROUP CHAT & SHARING: With Telegram, you can form large group chats (up to 200 members), quickly share gigabyte size videos, and send all the photos you want to friends.

RELIABLE: Built to deliver your messages in the minimum bytes possible, Telegram is the most reliable messaging system ever made. It even works on the weakest mobile connections!

100% FREE & NO ADS: Telegram is free and will always be free. We do not plan to sell ads or introduce subscription fees.

PRIVACY: We take your privacy very seriously and will never give third parties access to your data!

User reviews of Telegram
The one and only messenger one needs: 1. opensource (everyone can check and even modify it) 2. non-commercial software 3. free forever and no ads (cause non-commercial software) 4. real end-to-end encryption (secret chat) 5. PC version (from some third party developer) 6. browser version (from some third party developer) 7. real customer support (+42449) One thing I am badly missing: INVISIBLE mode. No way to hide "last seen" time. Anyway, I am happy to leave WhatsCrap and I seriously don't care if some of my friends are still using WA only... I don't give up my privacy because of some people...

11042014 Downloaded as someone mentioned its a bit like whatsapp. Indeed certain functions and layout feels whatsapp like.Only problem is - I have zero friends using it. Might be an alternative for the future but right now?. Not for me....

Galaxy Gear Fine App.. Still need to work on Broadcast list feature. Why only 100 per list? Also It creates individual list of entries after sending message via broadcast. If I sent message to 500 recipients than it will create 500 conversation in list. Which we have to delete one by one. Big headache..!

Where is Web Image Search? I only use Telegram instead of WhatsApp because of Web Image Search. Only Telegram S supported this. Now that Telegram S has been discontinued, there's no reason to use Telegram anymore.
