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.

Can’t make “automatic saving incoming photos” to work, no matter what I do.

Despite the option enabled for all contacts and downloading option is on max - no photos are saved… and no option to choose which chats to save from is present as well (I believe, it was there before, but not anymore… is it possible that old but unreachable options prevents this feature from working?)

Turn off the contact joining notification !!

This app is nice and all.. I really would like to use it more and replace my usage of whatsapp. But! The thing with the update for each contact joining is just crazy!
Every time I try to use it and see this issue... I think well maybe it can be changed already - so no. I think - maybe it won’t be so annoying this time - so again no.
In a world built on notifications not being able to turn this off - and I mean even the badge and the chat with this person appearing until I delete it (with 2 clicks!!!). This is super annoying. Many users ask for it. Just do it already! It’s been years.
My contacts are not usually my friends. I don’t care if my friend from 10 years ago joined or if my aunt joined. Let me decide if I want to see this or not.

I already had a telegram for almost a year and for this almost a year it’s clear that I have accumulated a lot of important information for me, contacts and much more, and then my number is simply blocked, although I didn’t do anything like that and I communicated there only with the closest friends and sat only on the channels of bloggers that I liked, which means that no one could throw complaints at me. and okay, if my account was simply demolished and I would make a new one, but my telegram number was blocked and without explaining what I did, and when I send a request for help, nothing happens, and a week has passed since my number was blocked and I just there is no connection with the only friends and requests do nothing. I hope they notice this post and do something about it.
