Pure instant messaging — simple, fast, secure, and synced across all your devices. One of the world's top 10 most downloaded apps with over 500 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.

Great app but a very bad battery eater

The app is great but please fix de bugs related to background refresh. App is removed totally from notifications and background refresh but its still eating battery and it refreshes in the background.
Also add sort for private messages. When you have a lot of channels the private message you see it very late.

We need it romanian language! Not all know English! Notifications is not working so great. We need it status for videos, pictures, test, links. You need it to remove the option like when I receive a video or link ... I like to have a option on/off to showing contact picture from my contacts from phone to on telegram easy sometimes when you see there pictures is more useful(use system contact photos:)! We need custom alerts for calling and notifications! We need it in contacts a option to see it how many people are in the list a count number! We need it in our channels & in chats comments not showing from who is forwarding the link pictures, videos & more, when is reply in channel not open another page only for reply’s comments, if we have many channels open many pages for replys too we need space in chats page too! I like to have more options to choose in the poll/quiz mode/poll options more corect answers to choose more then one , I play a game with my people and I can’t choose check mark of 3 correctly answers from the questions!
I want it to have a option to see it who is answered in poll/quiz mode!
More futures more people will join in your platform, please add status bar many people love this option me too!

Best messaging app, period.

Honestly, I’ve searched for “the best messaging app” for a very long time, and I am happy to report that after using telegram for over one year, My conclusion is that no other messaging app comes even close. It’s very fast, reliable, incredibly customizable, works over multiple platforms (like my pc for example) and it’s very stable. I’ve recommended this app to everyone I mesaage on a daily, and you should make the switch to this one without a second thought. Great job, Telegram team!
