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.

Telegram is very reliable in terms of messaging, sending videos or photos. There's so many groups and bots that is useful where you can download any kinds of ebooks, songs and videos like movies. My only concern is regarding the files I downloaded. Saving a song, takes several attempts to save it on my phone coz' it didn't save it's actual size in first try. In saving videos, most of the time, there is no option where I can save it to my phone, I have to manually find it on my phone data.

Telegram is the best messaging apps in my opinion. Better than anything else. What I like about it is because it can share a much better pic resolution. I even have the option to select a specific pictures(out of thousands sent to me) to be saved in to my memory card. Save me a lot of hassle. Plus the privacy in this app is very good, if not great. The interface is smooth, and look professional.

Honestly, the app was pretty amazing but with each update things get worse and over time nothing seems to work right. For example, before when you'd download a video, you could pause the download midway and and get back to it later. Now, if you pause the download, all data is lost and you have to start from zero. Additionally, the app takes up too much storage even with continuous deleting and reinstalling. Something needs to be done about some of these things cause the app is becoming nuisance
