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.

If it's some kind of bug pls fix

I really love using telegram to text and aesthetic wise it's cool and fun to be able to customize the colors and everything which i love. However, i hate the fact that it takes forever to send a video and my wifi/4G is working perfectly no issue when i send media's using whatsapp/imessage. On top of that i don't receive notifications sometimes and they'll appear only like few hours later or never. Making me very dependent on making sure i enter the app itself to check if there are any new messages.

A bug and a friendly suggestion!

Hi the new version has a bug where it just auto turn my messaging background to just white even tho I changed it 3 times already. I’m using dark mode. Please fix it soon!

Also, another suggestion is for telegram to save our background image once we used it before. Maybe enable us to edit and delete the ones we added ourselves and didn’t like.

I love telegram and I’ve been using it for a long time, it has never shown problems before! It’s like the best messaging platform for me especially to my loved ones!

Notifications keep backdating

The issue that has has been persisting since yesterday afternoon. I would finish an initial conversation with my girlfriend. Her replies would slowly trickle back and give me notifications that she has just sent them. Labelling as just received in the notification center. I am so confused as I thought it was an internet issue but it is also happening on my girlfriend’s end. This has never happened before and I wish to highlight this through this review of the app. Hope this helps anyone out there with the same issues as I am.

Regards,
Tanna
