About this app

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.

The app is good. But has some problem. The most annoying one is the voice call. No matter how good both of our connections are after 2-3 minutes it will show "Reconnecting" and I would hear some beeps. But it never reconnects. So I have to end the call and make it again and again after 2-3 mins. And another problem is "last seen recently". It's so annoying. Why can't you just show the exact time like other apps? Like " last scene X minutes/hours ago". I hope you will fix these bugs in future.

It's a great app that has many useful tools and, in my opinion, one year ago was the best instant messaging application. Right now it has a few problems like: audios take about 4-5 minutes to send, even if it is an audio of only 10 seconds; a 100kb image also takes a long time about 4-5 minutes to send and even if it's just 100kb. I have good internet speed, that's not the problem. Images that are sended with self-autodestructi don't load correctly, they stay blurred.

Absolutely perfect messaging experience. I have been using Telegram for many years with friends and family, and I highly recommend to any users looking for 100% free simple, functional, respecting, and secure messaging on every platform (including community supported ones!) or wanting to switch from other similar apps. However, a valid phone number is required for sign up which is a downside for those who might not be as fortunate or trusting, but does help against bad actors/spam.
