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 5,000 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.

Easily the best messaging platform ever
Hey guys. I never leave reviews so I felt compelled to write this one. I've always considered myself an iMessage snob where I wouldn't wanna use anything but iMessage. Even what's app was an issue for me. A friend of mine recently convinced us to join telegram and it was crazy how good it was. The interface was smoother, custom stickers, amazing voice quality on voice messages, and now video messages? Dude you guys are awesome. All other messaging platforms are behind in comparison to telegram. Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see what comes next.
The best messaging app
I gave it 4 stars because it's indeed a great messaging app, but as a content creator and podcaster, I don't see the "viral" feature on Telegram. There should be a discover tab(fully categorized based on users' preferences) in the app so that channels could benefit from their posts going viral.
In addition to that, channels don't have the ability to categorize their posts which is ridiculous. Each time that you post, you have to use hashtags which is ugly and not very helpful because members need to be familiar with all the hashtags that you frequently use which kills the whole purpose of categorizing posts.
Telegram continues to impress. It is lightweight, stable and work with even the slowest connections and has a great UI.
Calls are not as good as in Signal. They say it's going to improve due to A.I. but I don't know if that's correct. At least it is more reliable to connect but less private since Telegram doesn't relay calls.
What Telegram should do to be better is to have end-to-end encryption by default! Having to open a new chat is cumbersome.
