Pure instant messaging — simple, fast, secure, and synced across all your devices. Over 100 million active users in two and a half years.

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 50,000 members, share large videos, documents of any type (.DOC, .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.

    The app has been cooler for me with the previous version. This recently updated version hasn't been funny for me at all. Some messages on groups just disappears after I level the group to another and sometimes takes long for those messages to come back normally. Please, fix this ASAP and I would rate more stars if fixed to be better. The new features are cool but the bugs needs to be looked into. Full Review

    Cool and great apps.. I've using it for 4 years.. Great history saving msg, voice msg, sending picture and video. The only weakness from my point of view is this apps sometimes late in receive msg and some android phone does not have badge counter at its icon. If not, 5 star for TELEGRAM. Full Review

    Amazing messenger. I just have one complaint.

    This is possibly the best messaging application out there. Seemless integration between Android, iOS, Web, Desktop, Mac etc... No nonsense, ad-free, bloat-free, secure fast messaging. Having the ability to tag chats, search all your chats really quickly, watch gifs/videos from within the app, and send pretty much any file using it are just some of the amazing features that Telegrams offers... FOR FREE! The icing on the cake are the stickers! I love them... especially the ability to make your own sticker packs. It's not for everyone though. If you want to make video calls or phone calls, go elsewhere (for now). But if you want to message... get it, get your friends on it... Full Review

    Messaging works fine, but lately image uploads are spotty and unreliable. Multiple connections, over multiple hours, and images will upload fully but won't actually 'post' to the recipient. Even with multiple attempts. Desktop this problem doesn't exist. With the same image files. Full Review

    Nate T Published date: January 5, 2018

    So many unique and thoughtful features, I want to love this app but reliably receiving notifications has ALWAYS been a problem and it seems to be getting worse rather than better. I just don't understand how this can continue to be an issue for so long when almost no other mainstream messaging app has this issue (for me, at least). Full Review

    Eileen Budojo Published date: January 8, 2018

    Telegram is my favourite messenger app but I have not been using it since November 11 of 2017. I have however kept the app and constantly updated it in hopes of having the notification bug finally fixed, but after numerous updates I still have issues with this. I do not get any notification whatsoever unless I open the application, and even if I do it may arrive several hours later or even weeks later. Disappointed. Full Review

    I got reported and blocked from sending any messages... Why can't I send messages to groups? A lot of people loved chatting to me on some groups, so why block me from groups?! Block the message from the person who reported me (if they're in the group) so I can't irritate them. App runs slow Full Review

    Excellent app, rather it's a "better whatsapp". I used for my organizational communications. However, since 15 December 2017, this app can't be used in Pakistan. My organization employees in Pakistan can't use it. I can use in Malaysia. During my visit to Pakistan I too was unable to use. However, with VPN on, I was able to use in Pakistan as well. Any explanation for this? Full Review

    It is much more better than whatsapp. It taking less space on your phone than whatsapp, and flow is faster as well. It has no video call. This may be a cons for you but for me it is okey. When you want to use whatsapp web you have to make your phone stay connected internet but telegram does not ask you to stay connected with your phone. You only need to have verification code entered and thats it. One morw time thumbs up for the Russians apps.. Full Review

    Ilya Bizyaev Published date: January 4, 2018

    After the update, notifications became "configurable" with Android notification channels; in fact, the settings have to be per chat and are NOT preserved. Once I get a new message from a configured chat, notifications for it are reset to "High priority". So before I had Telegram notifications displayed but muted, and now I effectively have an always buzzing phone and no way to disable the sound! Very annoying, please fix! Full Review

    Fix the synchronisation problem please. I read messages on my phone and some still are shown unread on desktop version or even on my other phone with same account. And add encryption to normal chats as well if you do this then what's app has no perks against telegram. Full Review

    UPDATE: For anyone experiencing notifications issues, make sure you go to settings - battery optimization and set telegram to not optimize. Other than that, I've been an avid telegram user for some time now, and it never disappoints. Telegram consistently works fluidly, and I love the cross platform capabilities. Even Linux and your Web browser can be used to send messages. Messages send fast, and the file sharing is superb. Love telegram!! Full Review

    Published date: January 3, 2018

    As much as I like Telegram, it has Questioable contact privacy / Security now. Specifically, issue with deleted contacts reappearing even after deleted from the web interface (ONLY way you can delete contacts as telegram doesn't allow deleting a contact from the app... :/) I even went as far as testing it by blocking the app from reading em and installing on a clean device with no contacts, to no avail. Old deleted contacts reappear when they join, And that raises the question Where is Telegram pulling this contact data from, it's not from my device. Full Review

    I haven't used it for long but from what I gathered this app is pretty much the best messaging app you can get right now, all the features, bots and security makes it a great platform. I had only three problems which were 1. Getting people into Telegram 2. Sending seemed slow not sure about it 3. No fingerprint lock Full Review
