Description

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 200,000 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.

Unstable Connectivity

Am in so much love with this App, as it keeps more privacy than WhatsApp and other messengers.
Only problem am facing is the unstable Connectivity. Sometimes my friends have send some important messages, and I couldn't read it on time because of this issue. Initially one or two times restart use to help. But now it is still searching for connection, meanwhile all other applications are working perfectly. I afraid, A reinstallation will lose all my chats and all other details.
I really appreciate if anyone can from the team can help me on this.
Thank you🙂

Recent Update

As for the recent updates, when I have my ‘ last seen ‘ set to anyone, I can’t see the online people in a group organized properly. For instance, it used to list the online people on the top of the list, then sort out the rest by their last activity. But, for now it’s showing the online people in random spots in the group.
Please fix, Thanks!

“Updating” issue

This app is great, I’ve been using it since the very beginning, however it’s really annoying to use it lately with all the connectivity issues. The app shows a notification and when you login, you can’t even see a preview of the message because the “connecting/updating” messages keeps coming through and it take hours till it’s solved. Can this be looked into, because it really is the only downside of it and it gets really frustrating when you’re discussing important things and have to switch to a different app to get an answer. Thank you!
