By Telegram LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Pure instant messaging — simple, fast, secure, and synced across all your devices. Over 100 million active users in two and a half years.
FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market, connecting people via a unique, distributed network of data centers around the globe.
SYNCED: You can access your messages from all your devices at once. Start typing on your phone and finish the message from your tablet or laptop. Never lose your data again.
UNLIMITED: You can send media and files, without any limits on their type and size. Your entire chat history will require no disk space on your device, and will be securely stored in the Telegram cloud for as long as you need it.
SECURE: We made it our mission to provide the best security combined with ease of use. Everything on Telegram, including chats, groups, media, etc. is encrypted using a combination of 256-bit symmetric AES encryption, 2048-bit RSA encryption, and Diffie–Hellman secure key exchange.
POWERFUL: You can create group chats for up to 10,000 members, share large videos, documents of any type (.DOC, .MP3, .ZIP, etc.), and even set up bots for specific tasks. It's the perfect tool for hosting online communities and coordinating teamwork.
RELIABLE: Built to deliver your messages in the minimum bytes possible, Telegram is the most reliable messaging system ever made. It works even on the weakest mobile connections.
FUN: Telegram has powerful photo and video editing tools and an open sticker/GIF platform to cater to all your expressive needs.
SIMPLE: While providing an unprecedented array of features, we are taking great care to keep the interface clean. With its minimalist design, Telegram is lean and easy to use.
100% FREE & NO ADS: Telegram is free and will always be free. We are not going to sell ads or introduce subscription fees.
PRIVATE: We take your privacy seriously and will never give third parties access to your data.
For those interested in maximum privacy, Telegram offers Secret Chats. Secret Chat messages can be programmed to self-destruct automatically from both participating devices. This way you can send all types of disappearing content — messages, photos, videos, and even files. Secret Chats use end-to-end encryption to ensure that a message can only be read by its intended recipient.
We keep expanding the boundaries of what you can do with a messaging app. Don’t wait years for older messengers to catch up with Telegram — join the revolution today.

Could be much better
1st, all messages should be E2E,and have the option to delete sent msg on sender and recipient phone, NOT JUST IN PRIVATE CHAT. 2nd,its not competitive without video calls( which also should be e2e). 3rd, IOS USERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET A CALL OVER WIFI FOR CODES OUT OF CELL TOWER RANGE, AS LONG AS THEY ARE ON WIFI, IMESSAGE CAN BE USED BETWEEN IOS USERS, SO SURELY A MAC CAN BE USED TO SEND SMS CONFIRMATION CODES, AND THE LACK OF THESE SHOWS THAT TELEGRAM MAY BE FALLING BEHIND OTHER APPS, MAKING US QUESTION THE ENCRYPTION STRENGTH, I WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY FOR AN APP WITH E2E VIDEO CALLS THAT EXCEED IOS VIDEO OVER IP, SECURITY IS THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO MANY TODAY, KEEP UP WITH YOUR COMPETITION GUYS. BTW, I like the app in private chat,(Id suggest that all of it be like private chat options) and I like the option of fingerprint authentication, but the issue was i reinstalled it, and didnt realize I was screwed bc Im out of mins,and it wont call or txt ios users on imessage phone number online, many other people in poor service areas in rural areas rely on imessage for calls and txts, and I would think that the ios version would atleast have the capability to call or send an sms over ip, it should be simple, just use a mac system for setup with ios users, and please, ADD E2E VIDEO CALLS!!!
I like it
I use Telegram to keep in contact with lovely people I met through tumblr but who live overseas, so regular texting wouldn't work without racking up huge fees. Telegram makes conversations easy, and I love being able to see when my friends have been online last. And the ability to send gifs is wonderful! I do, however, have some suggestions: When a gif is received from someone else, it would be nice to be able to save that gif to my phone. Also, being able to customise notification sounds by importing them from my phone or Zedge or other ringtone apps like that.
Phone call notification
Been using Telegram for years. Love it. Got really excited about the new voice call feature. However, the only notification you're receiving a call is a single text notification. That's it. If you don't hear it, your caller gets to hear a ring back until they give up. Meanwhile, WhatsApp calls come right up on your screen like regular phone calls. Yikes!
UPDATE: it's been fixed! Thanks!
