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 100,000 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.
• Autoplay videos. Videos in chats will start playing automatically, hover to enable sound.
• Logout alternatives. The logout menu now show alternative options to logging out.
• Bug fixes and other minor improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Separated drawers for groups
I am part of many groups on Telegram, many of which I don't really check all the time, only once a week or less, but they keep poping up contantly in my contacts list every time one of the thousands of members write a message, getting in the way of the contacts and small groups that I do want to see all the time.
My suggestion is to be able to hide some groups or put them inside a folder.
Maybe also a functionality for "grouping groups" also.
very important feature that missed in macOS version
you guys doing excellent! Thanks for this clean design! i really appreciate that. but i just wanna one more option to make this app perfect! please add an option that users can turn off automatic downloads for images videos and … just like mobile versions. i think everyone has my point too and we can use less internet charge! cause we are force to download unwanted stuffs! please add this feature.
Thanks for reading.❤️
Better than Telegram Desktop
Telegram for macOS is a good attempt. It has a much smaller binary size than Telegram Desktop, it uses native AppKit UI components, and it runs much lighter on resources.
However, it seems to be designed to match the iOS interface, right down to the navigation paradigm :/ It shirks macOS interface conventions left and right, leaving long-time Mac users somewhat disappointed. I look forward to future updates where the developer works toward a more Mac-like interface!
