Fast and secure cross-platform messaging app

Overview

Telegram is a desktop messaging app with a focus on security and speed, it’s fast, responsive, easy to use, and free. You can use Telegram on a range of devices simultaneously— your messages sync across your phone, tablet, or computer seamlessly.

Telegram lets you send direct messages, photos, videos, and various files (doc, zip, mp3, etc.). It also allows you to create groups for up a thousand people or channels for broadcasting to unlimited audiences.

Moreover, you can write to all your phone contacts and find people using their handles. This is why Telegram works like SMS and email combined; all your personal/ business messaging needs are taken care of. You can download the program on your PC and it will only take a few minutes to set things up.

As mentioned, Telegram is focused on speed. Sending multiple photos is a breeze, while audio and video are extremely easy and quick to upload & send.

The desktop program may be lacking functionality of its mobile sisters (voice messaging, secret chats, and group chats), but it is still a great messaging service. Messages tend to sync seamlessly across all your devices. Once you've read something on one of your devices, it's marked as “read” on the other. This means you no longer have to deal with a bazillion notifications.

Security is another major plus of Telegram. Your messages are encrypted in the cloud, Telegram for Desktop takes things a bit further by including 2-factor authentication, so you can prevent unauthorized logins. You can also review the many places or devices you’re logged in and stop individual sessions.

Here are the key features of Telegram
