Powerful Powerful and secure, ad free replacement for messaging apps like WhatsApp. It even steps up to IRC as you can create channels, assign mods and you can use bots! Send notifications from other apps or services using the API (like PushBullet). Install on your PC. Create a handle so ppl can find you without knowing you number. Use secret chats. And the stickers! Play or build games! New amazing features are introduced regularly, without making the basic UI and settings confusing! I'm so happy I found this!
Best on the store It's better than any other messaging app in any aspect. It's fast, light, you can make your own bit and your own stickers. Everything's free, and it'll never bombard you with click bait ads, I mean, no ads at all. Makes me wonder how long they will keep it this good... Since a free stuff this good will soon get unwanted attention...
Custom, unverified "security" and deleting accounts at will Just remember, people, in case some Telegram's algorithm decides to delete your year or two old account - without my request or consent - it will just delete, eradicate it completely, locking you out on all your devices, without warning, just wiping all the history completely and irreversibly. Kind of... hard to trust them with anything and "reliability" is the last word I would use. F-word was the first one. For me it just dropped on the last place on the list of the IMs, below Snapchat and Kik. Well done!
Indeed a new era of messaging Yes .it's is. The secret chat holds the soul purpose of this app. Well done developers. The only thing which ticked me was that in secret chat servers won't see any of our chat. Then what about groups and other talks...?this app will be a flagship of messaging.keep it up guys may this app succeed in its mission :)
A recent update changed how we saw when others had checked last. Before, "last checked" showed an actual time. Now it says "recently." Really? Just exactly how long is RECENTLY? This needs to go back to an actual time so that I can tell if it's a minute or 5 minutes. Recently is just too vague.
If you value your privacy for its own sake! Telegram SO much better than the buggy SMS app I was saddled with...doesn't have to break messages apart, let's you transfer full photo files if that is what you want to do. So many features and the most important of all....YOUR stuff remains protected and private, as it should be.
- Major update to Telegram's Bot Platform: Bots can now offer you rich HTML5 experiences, like games.
- Check out @gamebot for examples of what's coming.
- You can use these bots in inline mode in any of your chats to share a game and compete with friends.
- All games are loaded as ordinary web pages, so this update won't add a single byte to the size of our apps.
- Added many small improvements to the sticker panel.
