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.

REQUIRES your phone number to use
Launched the app and first thing they want is your phone number. No way to skip or bypass this requirement. If apps like surespot can provide end to end encrypted and secure messaging without asking for ANY personal information like my phone number, then why can't telegram messenger? Never got past the phone number screen on this app but I'm willing to bet they also require access to all your contacts information too. I wish people would stop giving these companies that they really know nothing about access to the personal information of the people in their contacts list without those people's consent. Deleted this app.
When I used to receive voice messages and play them with the inner speaker (putting the phone on ur ear and hearing the message like a phone call), every other voice message after that was played automatically with the inner speaker. Which is a good thing when ur with other people.
However, with the new update voice messages plays automatically with the loud speaker even though the first one was played with the inner speaker.
Please bring back that feature!
Otherwise I love this app. It has replaced whatsapp on my phone.
Better than every popular messaging app, telegram is faster, lighter and reliable, I love the way it works great even on low signal wifi where the others can't connect. It's just great to sync with pc too.
