Customer Reviews

Great Chat app

Awesome chat app whatsapp has just got popular due to its early appearance and now its service has fallen a lot. Telegram is much better than whatsapp it also support secret chat which is awesome feature. Photos videos download faster than that of whatsapp. Overall a great app for messaging and it has its official desktop client which works seamlessly that of iMessage on cross platform except for the secret chat which makes it a great app

Several photos at once

I am very happy to use Telegram. But I have a small request, can you add to Telegram for Mac function select several photos at once? For example, holding down Cmd button.

Some issues

From version to version it cannot download files. So if someboy sends me any file I cant download it. It starts download and shows the «Download» button again.
