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.
What's New in Version 2.13
Telegram for iOS has been updated. New in version 2.13:
- Places in locations (venues, landmarks)
- Smart notifications
- Invite links for group chats
- Captions for photos
- 'Listened' status for voice messages
I cannot say enough good things about telegram. It keeps getting better with every update. This app is insanely fast (under one second send time). Because of all it's features it is extremely versatile. I personally use it to chat with friends instead of text messages, and also use it as a primary method of communications in a couple different organizations I am part of. Previously used group me, love telegram. Strongly recommend, keep up the good work!
Fantastic and full featured messenger that is flexible and respects your privacy too!
There's not much to say other than this is an amazing messaging app with a wide variety of features and some great privacy tools.
Another perk is that they have a client for every platform, including web. So you can reply from your pc or web browser, unlike some other messaging apps.
Notifications seem to be hit and miss
I've been a big fan of Telegram since it was first launched. It's simple and effective. However in the last 3-6 months I've noticed I often don't get notifications. I only realise when I open the app that messages have been sitting there for days. Often my friends use other apps to contact me when the don't get a response from me. Hope this gets better.
