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.

I love Telegram but..

I am using this app since 2015, I enjoy using this app to chat with my close people. It is super fast and convenient however there have been a lot of updates so far. Some of them are I think really causing problems, personally I think the feature to be able delete whole chat without 2 parties consent is really annoying. Why would telegram allow users to delete whole chat where can be important information to other part? The chat’s data belongs to 2 people. I do not understand why someone can delete my data without my consent!!! Please remove this feature I believe it has caused many problems among other users too.

Waiting too long for bug fixes

In my opinion this is the best app ever to contact other people. Best features, best stickers, high quality calls... Although it has a few bugs that are still not fixed: audio calls being dropped for no reason on 12 Pro Max on cellular, screen is always on when using the speaker during audio call - this drains the battery and is really annoying at night. Also: when someone calls you when your screen is locked and you pick up - the every notification during that conversation will wake up your screen so you have to take the phone away from your ear and close again to get the black screen.

And this - with every update we get new features and stickers, sometimes just a new look of something... when basic bugs are still not fixed for a year.

Autoplay voice messages

Everything is perfect, BUT please add option to disable autoplay of all voice messages. For example, there is a common chat where some people are using voice messages and some using typed messages at the same time. When there are dozens of unread messages autoplay is pain in the a**, I've listened 1 message, next several messages I have to read, but autoplay starts playing next audio message which could be sent much more later.
