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 10,000 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.
What's New in Version 4.2.1
- Add emoji to a message by typing ‘:’ + keyword.
:relieved : :satisfied : :smirk :
- Search through messages of a particular user in any group. To do this, tap the group title when in a group > Search > tap the new 'Search by member' icon in the bottom right corner.
- While searching, select a user to browse all of her messages in the group or add a keyword to narrow down search results.
- Send self-destructing photos and videos to any one-on-one chats (use the clock icon in the media picker to set a timer).
- Edit photos even quicker with the improved photo editor.
- Add a bio to your profile (in Settings) so that people in large group chats know who you are.
- Download media from large public channels faster thanks to the new encrypted CDNs.
iOS Version seems to be lacking in basic features
I've not used telegram long, but I've noticed that I cannot create a group, get invite links for groups, or even utilize my admin status properly in groups, an example would be the inability to delete messages for everyone in the group.
All in all it's very frustrating to not have these features and I would love to see iOS "catch up" on the necessities for an app that has group messaging.
I hope to see these added very soon.
Stop adding features and fix the crash!
I've been trying to embrace not force closing apps. But your app crashes so much I don't know where to begin with it.
It's never really open for more than a couple minutes because it crashes. I set my phone down after sending a message. Waited for a reply, crash. Opened Telegram up again, crash.
Please stop piling on features and fix this issue, as it stands I only talk with three people with it, mostly because no one will stick through the crashes.
Months ago Telegram promised an exclusive new feature for iOS users, much needed dark mode and brand new themes; but what have we got? an unneeded "bio" option, some useless "search" functions and ridiculous ":" things!
Come oooooon:( bring us what you've promised, some REAL updates like dark mode, slide-to-reply function like WA, redesigned contacts info page, ability to archive chats, new themes, a built in file manager, categorized chats etc... .
