Description

Pure instant messaging — simple, fast, secure, and synced across all your devices. Over 400 million active users.

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 (.DOCX, .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.

Issue with the chat history

I love this app to death, one of my favourite things to use ever. However, I am experiencing a bug where if I set a chat to have the history available for anyone, searching old messages to quote them opens up a different, glitched chat, which does not allow me to reply to the message proper.

I find the quote feature to be one of the most useful things and turning chats - that are visible to new members - into ones that can only have old messages quoted via forwarding is a very unorganised and not-sleek thing for a Telegram function. I love the rest of the app, but for this I’m not impressed; Hope it’s just a temp bug.

I also noticed that the old profile pictures of said chats were not visible upon editing.

Also members who leave chats after a while of not talking are not announced as having left the chat.

You also can’t search/count the chat messages per person once they’ve left a chat.

channels and individual threads must be segregated

Channels, bots and individual threads must be segregated as the list of chats now is a complete mess and it’s difficult to navigate through hundreds of channels to locate an individual who texted you. Sometimes I can’t answer because I don’t see who texted me until I scroll all the way down the list. As someone mentioned before, would be nice to see Read and Unread messages at the top.
All the rest seems ok, much better than whatsapp which I’m trying to get rid of. Thanks Pavel for the great app!

Delay notifications & online status

Telegram is giving delay notifications, the message will be received but the notification sound and numbers were taking too long. Sometimes a single message will not be notified at all unless opening the app. This is so uncomfortable while using the app. The online status will show green longer even after exiting the app. It will take at least a minute to show offline even after exiting the app. This two issues have to be fixed.
