Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed. It’s fast, 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.

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

Fast and a great interface

This desktop version makes responding easier than reaching for the phone/mobile device. Great to have the same function as mobile of sending voice messages with just a click, extremely useful, even if people around you at the office think you’re oddly, sporadically saying things to your computer.
