Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security. It’s superfast, simple, secure and free.
Telegram seamlessly syncs across all of your devices and can be used on desktops, tablets and phones alike. You can send an unlimited amount of messages, photos, videos and files of any type (.doc, .zip, .pdf, etc.). Telegram groups and broadcast lists have up to 200 members. Be sure to check our website for a list of Telegram apps for all platforms.
We built Telegram to make messaging speedy and safe again, without the usual caveats.
Why Switch to Telegram?
FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market because it uses a distributed infrastructure with data centers positioned around the globe to connect users to the closest possible server.
SECURE: We made it our mission to provide the best security among mass messengers. Telegram is based on the MTProto protocol that is built upon time-tested algorithms to make security compatible with high speed delivery and reliability on weak connections.
CLOUD STORAGE: Telegram seamlessly syncs across all your devices, so you can always securely access your data. Your message history is stored for free in the Telegram cloud. Never lose your data again!
GROUP CHAT & SHARING: With Telegram, you can form large group chats and broadcast lists of up to 200 members, quickly share large videos, documents (.doc, .ppt, .zip, etc.), and send an unlimited amount of photos to your friends.
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.
100% FREE & NO ADS: Telegram is free and will always be free. We are not going to sell ads or introduce subscription fees.
PRIVACY: 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.
SUPPORT: For real-time support, please go to Settings in Telegram and select “Ask a Question” to send a message directly to our support volunteers. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

normally I don't write any reviews guys, but this is an exceptional situation. i must say, this is hands up and heads down THE BEST messaging app EVER. The speed, minimalistic and smooth design, very surprising and entertaining emoji pack (Steve Jobs is just stunning), the photo editing features, sound recording, secret chat, group chat and much much more!! Guys, this is just phenomenal indeed! So much work has done and free of charge! I have iphone 4s, and this app works just like fast and reliable magic. Thank you so much for this, i'm your truthful fan from now on. i would rate it 100 from 100 if i could, sorry for just 5 stars :). p.s. there is no need to add calling option at all! I can call in facetime or skype or viber if i need to. this app is perfectly brilliant itself. this is much greater and modern version of whatsapp, i guess this is outstanding and unique. thanks guys, thanks for this :), good luck to you!!!!
Excellent but requires some tinkering
I love telegram. I have used countless chat messengers and have not come across anything that fulfills all the criteria I have from messengers except Telegram. It has security, awesome stickers and the best part, it's lightweight. There is one small issue though, I have synced my telegram with the OS X Telegram application and I think there is a sync problem where I get notification badges on my app icon when I really don't have any unread messages. So please look into this as its really misleading and gets on your nerve in the long run. Other than this. Keep up the good work!
Avid user of WhatsApp
I was an avid user of WhatsApp, I used it every single day to talk to my girlfriend. Now we are using telegram because seriously the loading times are so much faster all throughout the app. Sending pictures is a breeze and lighting fast on wifi and LTE. The only thing that's missing for me is the ability to make voice calls. If I get that, WhatsApp will be deleted and will no longer take up space on my phone. This is the best messaging platform ever.
