Description

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 30,000 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.

Buggy

Overall in theory the messenger is great. However I got really tired of some issues. There is this annoying bug, that when you type a message and in the middle of it you press dictation key it will move the cursor couple of spaces to the right and you can’t erase this blank space unless deleting whole message. Also an app crashes frequently especially in the big group chats, if you scroll up couple of pages of messages. Also sometimes the place in which you type your message falls behind the keyboard, so you can’t see what you type. And lastly, I am completely indifferent if some people in my contacts started using telegram, I would like to have an option to stop those notifications and stop opening new chat window with those people. It would all be forgivable, if those bugs were new, however they are as old as an app and nobody addressed them for many years. I always use the newest version of devices and software, so problems can’t be on me.

Woo Apple Watch support has returned!

I love Telegram! I had an old Apple watch in the past and I enjoyed being able to go through all my messages and read/respond to them on the watch app. I just recently got a new Apple watch and was excited to use telegram with it only to find they removed Apple watch support - meaning I could only see notifications and often couldn't see the whole convo. Was mega disappointed but glad to see it has returned!

It's extremely useful being able to have access to all your conversations on the watch and being able to read and respond to people as well as use stickers and such! Great job Telegram, thanks for bringing it back!

Developer Response

The Apple Watch app is now available in 5.0.13 version. Please, update the app.

My favourite app

I use this app constantly to communicate with my family in Iran and it is amazing! It has channels which keeps me entertained, music, stickers, GIF’s everything! And believe me when I say I use it the most out of all social media app, it is my absolute favourite, it has many features likes video recording, voice recording, etc. I love the fact you can have many profile pictures up. With each update Telegram provides amazing new features. HOWEVER, I have one request. Will it be possible if telegram add a story feature? Like the one on Instagram and Snapchat?
