Telegram, is a new message app for your mobile phone. It comes from the founders of VK, Russia’s largest social networking platform.
Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s super-fast, simple, and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any number of your phones, tablets, or computers. Telegram has over 500 million monthly active users and is one of the 10 most downloaded apps in the world.
With Telegram, you can send messages, photos, videos, and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc), as well as create groups for up to 200,000 people or channels for broadcasting to unlimited audiences. You can write to your phone contacts and find people by their usernames. As a result, Telegram is like SMS and email combined — and can take care of all your personal or business messaging needs. In addition to this, we support end-to-end encrypted voice and video calls, as well as voice chats in groups for thousands of participants.
Telegram comes with a strong promise: “taking back our right to privacy”
The messaging app is built around the concept of privacy and security. All messages sent through the app can easily be encrypted and have a self-destruct option, therefore promising to keep your messages safe from hackers or any third parties (NSA, do you hear?)
Other noticeable features are:
- Cloud-based – You can access and follow on your conversation from all your devices
- Fast & Powerful – The app promises to deliver your messages faster than any other app, and so without any limitation in size (media included)
- Free & Open – It is 100% free and it will always be, no ads guarantee! And it comes with open API and protocol free for everyone.
And if you have more questions before deciding to give Telegram a go, they have a full FAQ for you.
