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.

About Telegram 8.4

I love Telegram with all my heart. I was pleased with the updates all the time, when you changed the settings to smoother corners, when you added customization functions for the application itself and its icons. But the latest update is disappointing enough. I hate instagram, but now I understand that telegram is turning into it. Quick reactions that interfere, it would be cool if it was possible to turn them off, and then, when I decide that I need them, turn them on. The calendar search is simply taken from the search for stories on Instagram, and I would not say that this is cool, it would be cool to have the right to choose here, because someone may like it when the whole screen is covered by another window, but someone does not. I do not want to hate Telegram, this cool application, after all, remains basic for me to use, but I think it would be good if Telegram remained unique from other applications :)

The default cache setting eats all memory

I encountered such an issue once, that all my memory was consumed by telegram cache and since then changed my settings to a minimum available cache of 5GB and keep media time to 3 days.
A few days ago I started again to experience the lack of memory and Telegram was not even showed as an app, which consumes a lot of memory. Only having this issue in past helped me to understand the cause and solve it by temporarily removing the app. Now the cache is being cleaned slowly by iOS.

Please, remove these unlimited settings or at least don’t set them as default ones!

Non-intuitive interface is some cases

Dear telegram team, as you progress your great app, I see some places, that confuses people and worsen User Experience in general. I hope that you find my feedback useful and continue to bring amazing UX to people:

1. When I create a chat-bot and distribute across a group of 100+ people chat-bot starts with delays which might take up to 5-10 minutes, when many people are actively using it. Without any “loading” icon or “please wait” message it is really confusing as I cannot understand what is going on and what should be my next step on this screen.

2. When chat-bot is being referenced as a part of message in another chat-room (where chat-bot is not functioning) and I click on its reference link - instead of transferring me to the appropriate chat room, where chat-bot is able to respond I just repeat the same message in the current chat room. This confuses people as being non-intuitive and spams chat-rooms (where chat-bot is not functioning, but a link like /items-list is being referenced) with unnecessary messages.
