Pure instant messaging — simple, fast, secure, and synced across all your devices. One of the world's top 10 most downloaded apps with over 800 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 phones, tablets and computers at once. Telegram apps are standalone, so you don’t need to keep your phone connected. Start typing on one device and finish the message from another. 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.

100% FREE & OPEN: Telegram has a fully documented and free API for developers, open source apps and verifiable builds to prove the app you download is built from the exact same source code that is published.

POWERFUL: You can create group chats with up to 200,000 members, share large videos, documents of any type (.DOCX, .MP3, .ZIP, etc.) up to 2 GB each, and even set up bots for specific tasks. Telegram is the perfect tool for hosting online communities and coordinating teamwork.

RELIABLE: Built to deliver your messages using as little data as 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, animated stickers and emoji, fully customizable themes to change the appearance of your app, and an open sticker/GIF platform to cater to all your expressive needs.

SIMPLE: While providing an unprecedented array of features, we take great care to keep the interface clean. Telegram is so simple you already know how to use it.

PRIVATE: We take your privacy seriously and will never give any third parties access to your data. You can delete any message you ever sent or received for both sides, at any time and without a trace. Telegram will never use your data to show you ads.

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.

The Send button lags and turns you into a “spammer”

The Send button lags, tempting you to hit the button multiple times in an attempt to send your message. However, the end result is that your message will in fact be delivered as many times as you hit the Send button. Now, it doesn’t seem too problematic in a private chat. However, in a group chat, when that happens, Telegram’s own spam bot will kick in and restrict your account functionalities, claiming you are sending spam or sending unsolicited messages.

In my case, the message — and all iterations — was instantly deleted, and I was prevented from posting in the group for three days by the spam bot. There’s also nothing you can do about it except wait it out. It was a very frustrating experience, and worse is that there is no available update to correct this annoyance.

Could be so good...

If only there weren’t so many buggy things in it! Being part of a huge group where on some days, thousands of messages come in, we should be able to select those that we want to delete from OUR side only. Not only messages that we’ve sent, but messages others have sent. But no, that’s not possible. When you click on the message, it does’ show’ the option of deleting, but alas when you choose the trash can, it brings up a helpful (NOT!!) message saying you don’t have to delete as there’s plenty of space given everything gets stored on the cloud. THAT’S NOT THE POINT!! SOME OF US JUST WANT TO KEEP RELEVANT MESSAGES and NOT have to trawl through all the others. Why is that difficult to grasp? Every other platform you can delete things you don’t want to keep. But oh no, not here.

There’s more I would feedback, if only I knew someone was listening. But no one is. From this app, we just get crickets. Who makes an app and then ignores the people using it? Doesn’t make sense to me. But then I’m only a consumer.

Hours searching for a solution results in nothing. Messages to the ‘support team’ (in app) results in deafening silence. Reaching out on social media - nada. Should I send a carrier pigeon?

Very good app but can be improved

I really like telegram but I have one problem. Once you subscribe to a lot of channels, then it becomes quite possible to not notice a message from some person (this happened to me already and to many of the other telegram users I know).

I have a suggestion how to fix this, which will also make an app more user friendly. Why not introduce an interface in the “chats” section which will allow users to switch between “regular chats” mode and “channels” mode? Or maybe go even further and let users decide how they want to distribute their chats and channels by letting users create folders with different chats/channels. I feel like it will make the app much more comfortable to use, as having all chats and content at one place is a bit chaotic.

I hope telegram team will notice this. Thank you !
