By Telegram LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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 20,000 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.

A few issues, otherwise good.
A couple of glitches I’ve experienced lately...it’s automatically saving every picture I receive. I can turn it off, but the only difference is I can’t see it unless I click on it, then it saves it anyways. Also, sometimes it’ll show someone going offline, when they clearly haven’t because messages are read or they’ll reply. Lastly, when replying with quick reply (outside the app) sometimes I’ll send a duplicate message that never sends and I have to delete it myself. Hopefully these issues get fixed because otherwise the app is pretty good to use. Best messenger that isn’t popular.
Listening to voice messages while listening to music
When we listen to music with Telegram media player ( music in Telegram chats ) and wanting to listen to a voice message, it will stop the music and we must find the music again and play it after listening to voice message! It’s annoying, you can separate the media player of music and voice message and when we play a voice message, the music pauses and after the voice message, the music resumes.
Please look for a solution ASAP.
Needs more VoiceOver accessibility
I am blind and use the VoiceOver screen reader on IOS. I am able to use the app, but it is difficult because some of the buttons are unlabeled. An example is the button to do an audio chat. It took me 10 minutes to figure out where it was because VoiceOver just says “button.” I like the idea of this app, so I hope the buttons get labeled for VoiceOver users. I would love to be able to share this app with all my FaceBook friends, but I shouldn’t do this until my friends who are VoiceOver users can easily use the app. I apologize if this is too harsh.
