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.

The app is awesome. But I don’t like that option for others to delete our mutual conversations from their side. If they want to delete the conversation fine, but remove that option that let others to delete the conversation window on my side on my phone! Thank you

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.

Accessibility issues when using voiceover

I am a blind person and am using voiceover as my screen reader. Am using iphone se, with ios 13.4.1 and am encountering into several issues:
1. When in the chat screen of a person, the buttons on the screen are unlabeled for some reason.
2. When openning a group chat, in order to control the settings, like muting the notifications this button isn’t unlabeled, so a user like me who uses a screen reader can’t interact with this button.
3. Can’t mute or unmute channel notifications. The mute or unmute button doesn’t appear on the screen.
So, please fix those issues in order to make us a great accessibility.
