MORE ABOUT TELEGRAM
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Please fix CPU high load bug bug
Since I updated to high sierra CPU load started spiking up to 80% on my MBP late 2013 without any reason.
I have to use regular telegram app because of this bug.
Please fix it!
Not for Business
Version 3.6 of Telegram Lite is quite good at juggling multiple contact chats and managing data, but it is emphatically *not* suitable for business.
The fact that one cannot turn off the whimsical text bubbles — and thus, not display a chat as "clean" text, which makes it impossible to select and copy multiple text blocks quickly or directly — severely undercuts its useful functionality for work-related tasks.
It is otherwise a functional, streamlined alternative to the full Telegram app.
What is the point?
I downloaded this app on my mac first because someone that I really do not know wanted to chat. So why would I want the person to have my phone number? This app says NO PHONE NEEDED. Sounds good. So I downloaded it. It tells me to download on a phone first and requires my phone number. So I did that. Then I find that others contacting me through this app need my phone number. So what is the point? All cellphones have a messenger. Especially iPhone. What is the point again? I don’t do facebook nor do I have a google email and I don’t want them either. That is my point for even searching for such an app.
