Telegram is an instant messaging service used mainly to hold person-to-person or group conversations safely and securely. While you can enjoy all of the standard messaging app features that other apps offer, including text, audio, photo, and video messages, the app also allows users to make video calls and send files and songs.
Available on all major platforms (iOS, Android, tablets, and even desktop computers), Telegram is better than other messaging apps due to its privacy offerings. Conversations are encrypted using a proprietary algorithm. In addition to this, users can protect their conversations by using an access code or PIN, which must be entered before entering a specific chat.
When comparing Telegram vs. WhatsApp, for example, Telegram’s safety features outnumber WhatsApp’s, but so do the other benefits of the messaging app. To begin with, Telegram is a cloud-based messaging app, which means your information is being continuously synced to the cloud. This allows you to access your messages on different devices while sharing photos, videos, and files up to 2GB each, ultimately allowing for a more seamless user experience in terms of storage and safety.
Don’t want your photos stored on the cloud? With Telegram, it’s simple! The app allows you to send self-destructing images and files so that they’re only available to be viewed temporarily. After that, they disappear completely from your chats and your account. The same applies to text messages.
