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.

Have been using telegram all the while, everything seems to be smooth and all. However if the bugs can be fixed asap it would be even better.
1: notification was alerted few minutes after i have read the messages and replied.
2: there is a lagging on sending out messages to friends
3: telegram app is missing from CarPlay. It’s a little inconvenient as i have been using telegram more than whatsapp but whenever i was driving and i have notifications from telegram, i will need to check through my phone manually which is very dangerous.
Please do some enhancements!! Thank youuu

Slow Loading Time

Hey Telegram!

I’ve been using your app for the past 5 years and things have been going well, except for this year. I still love the features that Telegram provides - cute stickers, easy to save sticker package, video messages, text editing, well-thought privacy settings, etc.

Have had no issues except for this year. Video messages that i receive takes a LONG time to load. Initially i thought it was due to my phone as I’ve been using the same phone for 6 years. Makes sense for my old phone to lag. But even after I’ve changed to a new phone and update telegram, I still am dealing with the same issue.

To my surprise, I am not the only one dealing with this problem. Every one of my friends share that they too hate how slow it takes for video messages to load. We also hate how long it takes for telegram to connect. The word ‘Reconnecting’ can be found at the top of the app for awhile, and it gets frustrating when communication gets delayed.

A short 5 seconds video takes 30-60 seconds to load before the preview starts playing. Same goes for how long it takes the app to ‘connect’.

Would appreciate it if something can be done about this. Thanks

Overall Better Features Than WhatsApp

I like Telegram with its superior features like polls, how new members to groups/channels can see previous messages before they join, editing of messages and deleting of all messages which has its pros and cons too. It’s somehow been a bit buggy for me. I can’t see all my older messages unless I reopen the app. I hope I don’t have issues with removing people from folders as well which I had before.

To all those people complaining about getting added to spam groups, you just need to change your security setting to allow only your contacts who can add you to channels and groups.
