Pros: Firstly, I love this app because it has the ability to hold a lot of contacts in a group. I remember when I started a seminar on health. I wanted to reach so many people at the same time. Telegram chat made it easy, fast and safe because I was able to reach a large number of people at a go and they were all inviting people into the group. I could remember I had over 13,000 group members and most of them were all active. This was able to change their lives and we got to learn from each other.

I also love the fact that you can call other chat members in the group without getting to know their phone numbers or they knowing yours. It keeps your contact number safe while you communicate through telegram voice call.

You are also able to create your own sticker to customize your feelings or mood. It can also be used to illustrate a particular thing you are talking about or used as a promotion tool if you are running a mini advert too.

Another good thing about Telegram is that on like other communication apps, you can import any kind of file to your telegram to your contact.

You can also block people from adding you to a group without your consent which is a very good way staying away from scam groups and unwanted individuals.

Cons: I cannot see anything wrong with Telegram from my end.

Overall: It made me reach a whole lot of people in just one group and I was able to improve a lot of people's health challenge which gave me a good boost socially. I can recommend it to anyone who would want to reach the whole world.

Pros: I have been using Telegram app for 3 years. I visited middle east countries and other popular applications are banned in those countries. I searched for a solution and found Telegram. Telegram has amazing features such as Texting, Calling, and file sharing. Compared to other application, Telegram has no limit for sharing files, photos and videos. I basically selected many photos and pictures and send them to my contacts. One of the best things for me that Telegram provides users to find channels which are created by users in many subjects to share the same interest and information. For example, I joined many economy and education channels and we had good discussion and information sharing atmosphere. Privacy is one of my concern about the application, I am able to create a secret chat room and Telegram does not allow forwarding my texts to others and deletes my text immediately when I leave the room. In addition, I am able to delete my texts whenever I want and feel safe about encryption. Moreover, my phone battery frequently dies and still needs to text, I am able to check my texts by using Telegram web function. Not like the other application, Users have access to their texts by using Telegram web even their phones have no battery or internet connection.

Cons: Telegram does not have a video call function. I have suggested Telegram to my family and friends but Telegram is not popular in some countries so not able to use with all my contacts.

Pros: Chat data synchronized with no storage limits across all devices and operating systems;

Meticulously crafted design: every button feels just in the right place and follows the design guidelines of the operating system, be it desktop, Android or iOS making Telegram feel 'native' rather than just ported from somewhere else.

Amazing performance in synchronization speed, network throughput and caching. You can see the Telegram notifications coming first on connecting to WiFi...

Full control over notifications: a killer feature is an ability to limit the number of notifications per group in a given period of time. When your team starts a discussion you'll hear that once... and only once.

Flexible security settings including end-to-end encrypted chats and message autodestruction;

Highly functional voice messages with flexible playback system and optional video recording;

Ability to edit a message by pressing an up arrow (like when you replay a command in bash...);

A lot of extra functionality like stickers, message markup, and bots (among others inline LaTeX rendering and video search);

Instant article preview for a wide range of websites;

Reply, forward and pin a message;

Cons: The contact list is based on phone numbers and requires contact permissions on mobile devices.

Overall: Using Telegram over the years I never doubted it is the best messaging app both for private and team use. In every respect it surpasses the mainstream alternatives, providing for years features that they only start to pick up now.

To give a single example, Telegram has long been the only app allowing functional message replies. Nowadays this is also possible in WhatsApp but even serious solutions like Slack have a lot to improve in that regard. It sounds like a detail but the ability to refer to past statements conveniently is a game changer in an asynchronous, remote team where important information can get lost very easily.

Its The Best Chatting Platform that i ever used.

Pros: I really Like Telegram Messenger Its User Interface looks really good, And Telegram Saves all of our chats and the media that we sent , on the server. and I really like the fact that telegram supports in all platforms like Windows,Mac,Linux,Android and iOS and they have its web version too and because of that we can access our chats anytime from anywhere. And there is no limit fro the file size that we can sent on telegram. And we can use telegram on multiple devices at the same time. And I really like the option to add and use multiple accounts in one phone. And in telegram we can do voice calls and we can manage its security features like enable and disable peer-to-peer calling ,blocking certain users, or we can add them to exceptions list. And i really like the fact that there are too many customisation in settings.

Cons: We cant make a video call on Telegram, and the voice calls are not good as the other apps when its on low signal.There is no option to add multiple account on Telegram Desktop version. When we go-to a chat we can see the photos and videos that the use sent or shared on group, but there is no option to see only videos and photos separately.

Overall: I really love Telegram the only import feature missing on telegram is video calling. but i really don't use video calls , so i really like telegram for messaging and sending files.And i Use Telegram on multiple devices on my Laptop, Desktop PC, and in my phones too and i really like that i can use it on all devices at the same time and i can logout from all other devices fro one device. so overall i my experience with telegram is great and i still use it.

Pros: I've been using Telegram since day 1 when it was introduced as an iOS app in August of 2013. It is my default messenger app. I don't even know if I'll be able to list all the pros of this awesome app.

1) Absolutely free, no ads, no in app purchases, no spams.

2) Available across all devices, including desktop, Android, iOS, Windows phone.

3) Unlimited cloud storage. All the messages are stored online and once you login every single message is synced across all of your devices.

4) Integration with IFTTT that is ideal for task automation.

5) Bots. There are tons wide range of bots that will increase your productivity.

6) Native photo/video editor. You can crop, change color, size of your photos. You can also trim, change the resolution of your video file before sending them. All of these are done within the app, absolutely no need for 3rd party applications.

7) Telegram has channels for variety of topics/updates/news. I read daily news within the app. A lot of news agencies have their official telegram channels.

8) Wide variety of high quality stickers for any occasion and reason.

9) Theme support. You can easily change the appearance of the messenger according to your tastes.

10) It has built in audio/video player.

11) Supports multiple profiles and you can easily switch between them.

12) Crystal clear audio calls.

13) Application runs lightening fast compared to any popular instant messaging app.

Cons: 1) Application does not support video calls yet. If developer implements video calling then app will be complete and include all essential communication tools.

Overall: Overall very satisfied with this application. It is my default messaging application that I use on daily basis.

Simple, fast and secure communication.

Pros: This application is free and consumes less data than other messaging options. Another remarkable aspect is that it allows sending large files, and supports a variety of formats; which is definitely useful, because you do not have to worry about the size of the file, or what format it is in, you just share it and that's it. It can be used in various devices: mobile phone, tablet, PC, which makes it more convenient to use because you do not have to depend on the phone. In addition, the application allows the recording and sending of messages in video format, obviously adding the advantage of adding image; it also has a varied gallery of stickers, which allows you to add creativity, emotions, to the message, in order to make it more attractive. One of its most interesting features is the possibility of participating in massive groups, thus transmitting the messages to a large number of people, in addition Chats Bots can be created, which can give a predefined response to certain messages, thus facilitating the tasks to the Business. Finally, this application stands out in the field of security because the messages are encrypted from device to device.

Cons: One of the aspects that could be objected to Telegram are the few options of customization of the user interface, as it offers the typical as backgrounds, colors and photos. It would be very nice if users could adapt this interface to our liking. Another thing that should improve is the search engine in terms of channels and groups, since sometimes the search is not effective or becomes tedious, unless you have a link to that group.

Overall: As indicated above one of the advantages of Telegram is that you can send large files of various formats, in addition information can be shared through channels and thus prevent chat groups from collapsing with different conversations and lost shared documents . To which we must add that because it is multi-device it is possible to use several at the same time. On the other hand, the possibility of creating private chats guarantees that the security of the conversations will be compromised.

Stay connected with Telegram, it's free and versatile.

Comments: Telegram has a very comfortable and friendly interface, is easy to use and has nothing to envy to other instant messaging services. Telegram is an application that offers to keep us communicated with our friends, relatives, partners, employees or with any person in general as long as they also have the application. One of the things that has been most useful to me is to be able to have several telegram accounts in the same device and this is something that not all messaging can offer us.

Pros: Telegram is a free and safe fast messaging application. In addition to having no space limit for multimedia files or chats. Allows access to messages from several different devices. It allows third party applications to connect with the network and this has as a consequence that there are unofficial clients such as the Windows, Mac, Linux and web versions. One of the best things about Telegram is that there is no intention to offer advertisements and also offers bots or applications programmed to perform commands.

Cons: One of the most influential negative aspects is that this application does not have video calls, which makes its competitors look more attractive. On the other hand, it does not hide the last hour of connection, this fact is a very requested aspect since for our convenience the majority of its users prefer not to show the last hour of connection. And finally, Telegram does not allow the information or status message to be established, which for the personal is very important because when entering a meeting I want my contacts to know that I am not available.

Pros: Telegram ensures that a user can still access chats that were created even before they opened an account, giving a user the chance to catch up with the conversation.

Using Telegram has also proven very easy, as the app is very easy to install and use, where the user is able to navigate through with much ease.

Further, the Software offers the user a chance to not only share text messages but also make video messages and calls.

To ensure control of information flow in Telegram, the app has a feature to allow group creators to decide who to have the power to share messages.....

Lastly, Telegram allows the user to share group messages, which is time-saving.

Upon leaving Telegram, the user can rejoin at any time they are ready, and still find the groups they had joined intact, and the messages and files they had shared intact.

Telegram also allows quick file sharing which enhances communication.

The software is very cheap to buy, install, maintain and use.

Cons: Unfortunately, Telegram requires an internet connection to be usable, unless the user is only reviewing that which was shared when there was internet connection

Overall: Telegram has reduced the hustles of having to catch up with past conversations. It also ensures that I can share messages with groups of people at once

Pros: I just love Telegram! It works all the time, never seems to go down. Its saves all your history and media, so you don't need to worry about formatting your phone or uninstalling the app from a device to install it on another. All your messages, quotes, groups, photos, links, audios, all of them are there, wherever you are. I use it for personal conversations and also to talk with work colleagues, you can search messages since the beginning of a group or conversation and it will be there. Its very easy and productive to use Telegram in the work environment.

Cons: A little time ago, it had a bug in the groups that when you have been removed and added back later, you lose the ability to search old messages and open old media, even if the option "allow all history access" was checked by an administrator when adding you back. I haven't seen this recently so I don't know if the bug persists.

Overall: I'm using it right now on my Desktop and my phone is telling me about notifications. Its integration between different devices is awesome. I don't need to be in the same network and I don't need my phone to use it on Desktop, this is great. My phone can die, run out of battery, explode or do whatever it want and I will still be able to keep my conversation on this PC.

Pros: Telegram works on multiple platforms including, Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android and the data synchronizes between all of the platforms. The interface of the application is incredible, every single feature is easily accessible. One of the best features of the application is that you have full control over the notification system. You can not only mute chats but also limit the number of notifications in a given period. Another feature of the application that makes it stand out compared to the others is the ability of editing and deleting your own messages. Telegram provides an easy way of file sharing and the best part of it is that you can share your images and videos without compressing them, which means that the files will not lose quality. Telegram has its own sticker system which gives the user easy way for expressing emotions with just a single tap. Another extra functionality of the application is the boy system.

Cons: I don't think the Telegram application has any Cons.

Overall: I have been using Telegram for many years to talk and to connect with friends and family. It is an excellent software when it comes to both private and team use.

Pros: I uses telegram for more than one year, which makes my personal and professional life easier. I like its secrete chat feature, it helps me to carry my personal and professional commutations in one platform. I do my personal close chats in secrete chat, so I feel safe.

There is an option to delete our account and all the messages & contacts automatically even if we have not access the account for a certain period of time. This feature called account self destruction, will delete my all chats and call history after 3 moths (we can select the period between 1, 3, 6, 12 months). Whatever happens to my life in future, all those chats and secrets will vanish with me. That's why I feel this is my secured messenger of my life.

Cons: I feel uncomfortable as I couldn't make video calls from telegram. If I want to do video calls, then I have to keep some other software in my mobile to do. I like to have less number of apps in my mobile as they kill storage of the mobile.

Overall: As overall, I feel happy to have telegram in my life which helps me to do clear voice calls and send images, audios, videos, files and location. And I feel telegram consume less amount of storage space in mobile compare to other messenger apps. Moreover secured communication through this make my life happier. I am expecting to have video call feature in upcoming updates of telegram

- Electronic mail management

- telegram is suitable for android application, within the web browser, or even a desktop application, and best of all you do not need to have your phone connected to the network for it to work, so whatsapp is left behind by this functionality

- You can make a development or a bot in telegram to integrate it with a web application, and have multidiversity

- Large file transfers without any limete, regardless of the file type

Cons: I consider until now an application very well developed and applied at the moment for what I consider that it does not have any disadvantage from my perspective, between the applications oriented to the world of the comunication this one has all my support.

Pros: The telegram performs a great instant messaging service that greatly helps users to find solutions to short, easy-to-resolve problems. It has several features for sending messages such as chat messages (where we avoid using emails to perform the same type of service and we save time with it), voice messages, which we can record and send. This application is also available for desktop mode, but it is most commonly used on mobile devices such as mobile phones and tablets.

Cons: The product is very good, meets what is expected by it. But the lack of having functions like connections through the voip technology, for any cell phone, and especially the voice calls to the other users of the same program are much needed. Other Telegram-like products already provide these services, as well as videoconferencing, and it is a very important point for Telegram to also look for these features to stay on top of talk programs.

Overall: The Software has other features to make its use even more interesting, such as sending photos, videos and various types of files to other users. And as it has its cloud-based server, it is very safe for the situation in which to occur an accident and you lose your device with several important messages within it. For this occasion, just install on other equipment, enter your number and all messages returned normally.

Pros: From my personal experience, I rate it as one of the best social Apps for messaging and online interaction.

It cloud saves your chats so one can easily get right back to chatting when one is getting a new device.

A very awesome App as my friends and family have benefited immensely through the various channels' that one can engage in on the App especially the educational channels.

It has a wide range of customizable features and simple but boundless interface. It's awesome and I highly recommend it.

Cons: I noticed the recent update leaks my mobile number to all of my contacts despite setting it to remain anonymous, it isn't cool though.

Also the notifications keep resetting by default to sound and pop up no matter how many times I change it to silent. I don't like pop ups. In overall, the App is great.

Overall: I remember creating a channel on this spectacular App to give a lecture series during my days as an undergraduate.

It was seamless to use and the participants mostly students were truly amazed by how easy it was to join a telegram channel and benefit immensely.

I was commended greatly for using the platform.

Pros: Telegram gives the users an opportunity to create Channels that can carry upto 1 million plus subscribers. Here, dissemination of information is made easier and real time.

Telegram users can communicate via secret chats after which they can disappear after some time. This ensures security of users information.

Lastly, The use of username on telegram eliminates the need to physically get a users contacts in order to communicate to him of her. Usernames ensures that privacy is maintained and personal information is only shared after a deliberate decision to do so is made

Cons: Telegram needs a very stable and strong internet connection to work optimally. This is sometimes difficult making it not compatible for use in poorly networked areas.

Overall: Telegram Channel gives people a chance to address a very large audience from different parts and regions at a go. Business have grown because of Telegram, online business is now thriving and more people are turning to telegram because of its ability to sustain a heavy traffic of messages without crushing or hanging. Also, telegram is safe thanks to the end to end encryption that ensures that no other person can access users private data on finances and so on. Telegam is an advancement of all the other messaging applications available now. It is just awesome.

Pros: Have you ever taught of losing important files when your phone is stolen or when it gets damaged or attacked by virus. All you need is to open your own chat number on telegram and type in all your files, when you get a new phone, download telegram and see the wonders, all your files will appear just as you typed it , provided its the same number.you definitely need this application , you can create a group chat and add over 500 persons in it, the features are really unquestionable and it keeps improving day by day based on users feed back. So so great

Cons: I just found out that telegram deletes chat after they have stayed for a long time, i dont know if its an automatic process or thats how it was designed, but some files remain fresh forever and we users never need them to be deleted ,i think Telegram should work on that. I trust they will, because they waste no time in users reply

Overall: Telegram has been great, chat has been modernized , communication made easy, file transfer remain same as sent, thanks to the team for the hard work behind this application

Pros: Telegram is good in many regards for simple messaging tasks and creating groups/channels to communicate with others. It seems to be a "must-have" for the blockchain community.

Cons: You can only pin 5 chats/contacts to the top for some reason.

It takes a while to load as it constantly pulls data from every single chat or group you've been in even when you're not active in them.

Their "spam flagging" is ridiculous. If you reach out to individuals in PM for group moderation duties or otherwise they can easily flag you as spam if they don't like you. The result is getting banned from the platform for a week or more. There is no disputing this, you simply get a chat-bot interface that tells you no specifics other than how long you're banned for.

Overall: Telegram has been a great tool for managing chats and channels in the crypto community. But extremely frustrating at many times due to the lack of customer support, inability to pin more than 5 chats, and loading data you don't need.

I see it as a somewhat necessary evil I wish I could avoid, but still have to use due to it's popularity.

Pros: I design my own messaging channel where I publish daily information about my business.

The application is simple to install on mobile phone and desktop.

I can use it in the PC desktop version without installing it on my mobile.

It has several options for administrators invited to participate in my channel.

It's simple to edit my journalistic works.

You can have a large number of members in a single channel.

Cons: Updates are usually not translated into Spanish.

The configuration options are not easy to achieve.

It is not possible to attach files and documents in the edition without URL.

Overall: I keep my news channel updated daily, with a lot of informative and photographic content. Telegram supports my data in the cloud, which saves me space on my local storage hard drives. I can create supergroups and best of all, it's free.

For journalism, which is my current business, it is a fairly complete, safe and dynamic application. The wide option of bots allows me to publish, make payments, calls online. In short, I recommend it to promote creative ideas in the world of journalism 2.0.

A complete communication tool.

Pros: Telegram has a very practical and user-friendly interface, it is relatively easy to use since its design is similar to products of this category, in terms of security it is very high since it is possible to establish extreme encryption chats which avoids possible information leakage, visualization of images, videos, text is organized and adapted in terms of deployment and interface, it is multiplatform although its use is more applied in mobile devices but it can also be used in PC through a desktop application, light or simply entering the Telegram website, so you only need to confirm via sms the security code and provide access, the rest of both calls and video calls are of quality.

Cons: A good satisfaction I have obtained its use, nothing negative about it works properly and stably.

Overall: It is applied as a communication tool that provides security in terms of its use, quality, easy use and interface adapted to the majority of the members of the organization.

Pros: Telegram is not only a chat solution it also allows for chat programming, and also allows you to configure or subscribe to a channel (which is like a feed of updates).

Telegram is big on privacy. For example, chats can be password protected and screenshots can be disallowed. These features are opt-in.

Telegram allows for texts to be deleted at any time. Also, you can draft texts.

Stickers and emojis are connected, so a search for a word will provide suggestions for both. This also happens on autocorrect.

Telegram can be used in the web without the need of always having your phone nearby as long as your session is active.

Cons: The web application is ugly. Useful, but ugly. Other than that it's hard for me to think of features or functionalities that I dislike.

Overall: Telegram is a great communication tool. It's a bit of a shame that the Telegram universe is so limited as a Telegram user you're very likely to also use WhatsApp or other chatting applications.

Pros: Its security settings are very flexible. End to end encrypted chats and message auto destruction can be authorized.

Well designed and easy to use. Each key were properly placed and works in line with the design guidelines of any type of device. That makes Telegram feel homely.

Chat records has no storage limits irrespective of the type of device or operating systems.

Synchronization speed, caching and network throughput operates at a very fast rate. Telegram notifications pops up first immediately there is data connection.

Ability to out an end to incessant notifications. Limitations to number of notifications that can pop up in a group within a specific period.

Ability to modify a message by simply clicking the arrow pointing up.

Added features like stickers, bots, instant article preview, the reply forward and pin message.

Pinned messages are still visible to new members that are added to groups.

Cons: The contact list is restricted to phone numbers registered on the device and request for access to contacts on mobile devices.

Overall: Generally, Telegram is a great app suitable for private and group chats. Infact. telegram is more suitable for group communication because pinned messages can be accessed by new members that are added to the group.

Excellent communication tool.

Pros: Telegram offers a very practical interface in which it allows to establish an adequate and quality communication, it has an end-to-end encryption, which protects the information contained in the chat as well as the shared documents, the quality of the calls is very good and has nothing to envy to other products with similar characteristics, without any doubt I think is one of the best products in its category and not only that most similar products are limited to use only on the mobile and if you need to use it on the pc you have to access an external resource that is usually slower, Telegram can be used on any device just by accessing the internet and receiving the authentication code we can obtain the same quality and necessary features.

Cons: Nothing to say very satisfied with the use of this product in both quality and functions

Overall: An excellent communication and collaboration tool, offering security, confidence and quality.

Pros: I have become a big Telegram fan for several reasons;

-Unlike most messaging apps, Telegram chat groups can hold a huge number of members.

-It is available on all platforms; desktop, IOS, Android and Windows. The privacy in Telegram reduces the stalking mode since one cannot get my number automatically.

-The Audio quality is also pretty good especially with good internet connection.

-One is also able to share files with a large size

Cons: Unfortunately, Telegram does not support video calls a very crucial tool for communication.

In addition to this most people haven't installed Telegram app and this makes it hard to reach them you must use other messaging apps. The marketing team should do something about this.

Overall: I started using Telegram when a messaging app I was using for group chats reached its maximum members limit. So we moved our group to Telegram and added more members. It is a simple app with a user friendly interface. I can use it on my Android mobile phone and Windows desktop in the office. In addition to this, nobody gets my number unless I want them to have it. And the best part is that I keep in touch with my friends who live abroad.

Pros: I primarily use this messenger for keeping in touch with my family in remote countries. This is the only app that has not been blocked by the governments and tends to work without failure. I especially like "Shared Media" when searching for the history of the chat. The app allows users to search history by media, docs, links, or audio!!! It is all broken down for you. Unlike other messengers that make it a complete paint to search a chat history. Additionally, This app allows you to select and directly reply to a selected message - handy when talking in a big group chat room. Also, it allows you to edit or delete messages.

Cons: No video calls. Alas, this option is missing in the app. I wish they could add it. Also, when muting the chat, it still shows a notification and number of messages. I wish there was no notifications at all when putting a chat on mute

Pros: Telegram quickly became my go-to for all things IM after Google decided to start sunsetting Google Hangouts. It is incredibly easy to use, has an accompanying app, and rather robust for IM. I've found their selection of GIFs to be second to none. Creating groups is easy as can be. I love that you can pin messages or even add fun little bots such as "Roll 'em Bot", because who doesn't want to be able to roll 2d10 in chat to help settle an argument?

Cons: I wish that they had the Google Hangouts equivalent of "floating head" chat, but that is very minor. There was also a time when the admin of one of my chat groups accidentally deleted all of the messages from one user in the group and we were unable to recover it. It seemed a little too easy to delete everything, which sometimes can be a bad thing. Besides that, I have no complaints at all about Telegram.

Pros: As a Coach and tutor, I do hold lots of training programs online,with Telegram, a great number of my students can participate in the training while also inviting other interested persons to join our Telegram group. Telegram can accommodate a good number of people as compared to whatsap.

I like the fact that once I open it with my Laptop, I can always access it anytime even if my phone is switched off unlike Facebook.

It supports large Files and different File formats and it has great security features we ensures that my chats and files are safe.

Cons: The application is not user friendly when compared to whatsap and the likes.

Also, one can't make a Video call with it.

Overall: Overall, I like the app. I hold most of my Business meetings on the platform and connect with International clients via the app .

it is one of the best IM apps around

Telegram is free of charge and i require no monthly subscriptions using it.

Telegram has a cloud storage server that offer me an opportunity to store my huge data files and easily access them any time.

Cons: I actually find nothing to dislike about such a perfect secure tool for messaging. It is easy to use and always meets my needs.

Overall: My overall experience with Telegram has been awesome and excellent. More than been easy to use, it has very efficient modern features making my navigation process quite enjoyable.

Pros: Allows to send messages, audio, gifs, video, images, all kinds of files in general, edit and delete messages, create broadcast channels and groups, give privileges to users of a group. You can create customized stickers packs, also has bot systems that allow the automation of thousands of tasks and any user can create yours or use a public one. It has storage in the cloud, it is very easy to share media between all your devices connected to your telegram account.

Cons: It really is difficult for me to find weaknesses in this wonderful application, maybe one fact is that not many users know it or use it as their default messaging application

Overall: I love it is application, I use it every day to talk with my contacts, also to share files between all my devices in a quick and easy way, I love all the functions that it has and always seeks to innovate

Pros: I like the UI, it's simple and easy to use, it's also a cloud-based service so the files sent don't take up space on my phone and this is great. I also like end-to-end encryption because it makes me feel confident that my conversations will not be seen by someone external. The desktop application is separated from the mobile application, it's a great advantage since they don't depend on each other. The messages are self-destructing, and the account may or may not be linked to the phone number which gives me more security. The bots are great and there're many functions and group chat allows a large number of users.

Cons: I don't like that it doesn't have video calls, it should be a mandatory service for any instant messaging platform because it's very useful. Something that I dislike a lot is that in my list of Telegram contacts there're people that I already deleted from my phone. It's assumed that if I deleted them from the contacts of my phone it's because I don't want to communicate with them however they appear in my Telegram.

Overall: I likeTelegram a lot because of the number of users that can be in the groups, since it allows me to interact with a large number of people and meet new people what is important in my work to attract clients. I really like the option of not registering my phone number because it gives me more security and privacy, it's something I appreciate a lot. Telegram is growing every day, is a great application whose users are growing little by little. Too bad it's still not as well known as other instant messaging platforms.

Pros: I like Telegram because it is a free app that offers a lot of features that other apps do not offer. One of the most interesting features is that I can have bots that can help me perform certain tasks such as downloading multimedia files. I can also take a look through the Telegram channels to observe news and certain updates. I can customize my app, use stickers and more configuration options.

Cons: Telegram has a quite optimal functioning. I have almost no problems, however, unfortunately Telegram does not support video calls and that leaves it very out. Additionally, it requires more privacy options in my opinion

Overall: Telegram is my alternative application to keep me communicated inside and outside of my organization. I think it deserves to be more recognized, since it has more advantages than other usual communication channels.

Pros: Telegram is stable chat app with many features. It's not owned by a company that "has to make money" from the users and is not connected to ad networks like most other chat apps. Something you talk on Telegram does not became a targeted ad for you.

Bots are easy to create and it can be used as an internal chat app for companies (like Slack).

There's a client for every platform (Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android and even Windows phone!)

Cons: If you use Telegram for a company chat, stickers can be a burden as users tend to overuse them. :)

Telegram uses your phone number as the main identifier. That can create some problems with work accounts where people don't have a work number and don't want to use their personal one.

You really don't know what happens with your data on Telegram. There is no option to delete it from their servers after 48 hours.

Overall: Very smooth. The best communication tool I've used and I used a lot of them. :)

Pros: The best part is you can use the app on your computer WITHOUT having to download it on your phone. It is top security with end-to-end encryption. There are many nice security and privacy features including "Secret Chats" or "Self Destructing Messages". It is very easy to install and it is a very light weight program (at least for the P.C.). Plus, it is totally free! I would say it is the best of WhatsApp and Skype combined, making it superior to both.

Cons: I have no complaints. The only problem is that not enough people are using Telegram yet so you probably still have to download the competitor's app :(

Overall: Telegram is a little bit of the best of all the communications apps with good security making it the best all around app of it's kind. I will continue to use and recommend this app.

Pros: Telegram provides a lot - security, online storage, and whole other functionalities. But, what I like most about it is their concern for keeping data of their users safe. It is one key thing that drew me to use Telegram and it still does.

Cons: The only thing can be shown as a drawback of Telegram is that there is read message sign in the application. After your message reaches the other user, there is no way to tell whether the other person has read the sent message or not. However, I believe they will come up with the solution for this matter in their own unique way as well.

Overall: Overall, I am very satisfied with Telegram. They are very sensitive with and never sell their user's data, they provide online cloud storage and it is available as a desktop application on Linux systems as well. What more can a user want?

Pros: Telegram is the best messaging application that I have used. It's very easy to set-up and use, the interface is intuitive and eye-pleasing. Moreover, it's very customizable, both in terms of UI and notifications. Telegram is relatively secure when compared to other messaging platforms. It allows for two-step verification, has encryption and secret chats. It can be used simultaneously on PC and mobile, as well as through web interface. The call quality is also very good compared to other applications.

Cons: I do not have anything negative to say as I am very satisfied with this application.

Overall: Telegram is my main messaging app. It is free, easy to use and secure. I use it for personal messaging, in the context of my job as well as for following different channels.

Pros: Telegram beats text messaging and all other messaging apps out there by a mile. Some of my favourite things about it are;

Channels - As a recruiter this is invaluable to me. I have created a channel where I share my job postings and share relevant content, all for free!

Mega Groups - You can have a group with as many as 1000 members

Secret Chat - For when you don't need a record

Privacy - Just because I am in a group with someone doesn't mean they can automatically get my number.

I also love that it lets me know when my friends join so I can send them a shout.

Cons: They only thing I don't like about Telegram is that not that many people are on it, I wish they marketed more.

Overall: Communicating across groups, sharing content...it's amazing.

Pros: Telegram is a simple messaging app with military grade security features. The user interface is sleek and very easy to use. It has end to end encryption, making it one of the most secure messaging apps out there.

Telegram can be accessed through the mobile app or through web browser on a PC. This is a very nice feature which makes messages accessible whether on my phone or desktop.

Collaboration using Telegram is easy because of the ease of creating groups and seamlessly sharing large files.

Telegram offers the ability to create bots which can help increase productivity.

Cons: One big issue with Telegram is that it doesn't have video calling feature.

It also doesn't allow multiple file uploads at the same time.

Pros: As a person who is using telegram, WhatsApp, and similar mobile apps, I should say telegram has noticeable advantages over other apps . Ease of installation, uploading and transferring any sort of files, managing the groups, editing and deleting the messages, all and all are perfect. As an example, in WhatsApp when you forward some message by mistake to a group, you can delete it. But still, others can realize you sent something; however, in telegram, you can delete your message even after 24 hours you sent it.

Cons: Comparing to WhatsApp, telegram voice calls have lower quality. Besides, you can not make video calls by this app.

Overall: Overally, I'd rather use telegram for my daily communications and file transfers to my friends and family.

Pros: Very easy to use, set up, secure, allows for password security as well as 2 step verification - and has encryption. On top of this, has numerous features like group chats and phone calls, and is backed up online so whatever device you use to access it, your chat history is retained. Also allows for secret chats and on top of this it can be accessed on a desktop natively rather than through a web interface.

Cons: Misses the common feature of video calling, and has limited appeal at the moment among most IM users, being overshadowed by programs such as WhatsApp.

Overall: I have used Telegram for years, for both personal social needs as well as professional group chats, and it has been a reliable service that is able to be run on multiple platforms and works rather seamlessly.

Pros: If you are worried about the security of your conversation you need to use Telegram, this tool provides end to end security for the users and no one else can see your messages. This tool available on any platform and you can access from web, pc or mobile. Moreover, telegram provides api for the developers where they can create their channels and it is useful for both developers and for the people who are using it.

Cons: If you do not open unread message you will get notification about that message many times and it is annoying because sometimes people do not want to open a message from others. Moreover, on the pc version you cannot at more than one mobile phone number.

Overall: I am using this tool for daily communications with my friends.

Cons: Most of the time I'm stuck with deleting problem of group of image and video. I believe it's very helpful to remove image or a video from group before download. Because in a group chat users post same thing in multiple times. I don't want them in my telegram chat. So I believe If there is a delete option before download, It's quite good feature to users.

Overall: Most of the time I'm using telegram for group chat purpose. I love that app. I believe that it can modify with the delete function as I mentioned above.

Cons: The most important problem is that it does not support video call. So because of that, we should use other software along with this one. the other important problem is when you change a group to a super group and you cannot turn it back. the other problem is when you want to have a voice call with others

This app is one of the best messaging platforms I have ever used - it has clear design, highly functional interface, many useful features, such as saving the messages (so you don't have to message yourself every time you want to save an interesting message/link), replying to specific messages, deleting your messages for yourself or for everyone in the chat, making custom stickers, sending images as files, changing backgrounds and color schemes, following message channels, etc.

The desktop app works just as good as the mobile app and has the same functionality.

Cons: I have used Telegram for a couple of years now and so far I haven't had a single issue with it. I don't see any shortcomings in this platform.

Pros: The best messaging app there is!

Clean design makes the app understandable right away and very easy to use. It automatically adds your phone contacts and allows to create group chats and secret chats.

The main reason I love Telegram is that there are hundreds of interesting and useful channels you can follow to learn new things or to stay up to date in your professional field.

Developers also update Telegram almost every week, which makes me think they care about quality and efficiency a lot.

Plus, there are no ads.

Plus, they just added animated stickers.

Cons: Telegram crops the size of photos you send through the messenger, and sometimes you need exactly opposite.

Overall: The best messenger!

Pros: Telegram is really privacy focused and is free to use. They are also getting in the blockchain era and I support that. All conversations are encrypted and you can choose to even make a more private conversation which you can destroy when you don't need it anymore.

Cons: I don't really see any big cons in Telegram, they are free to use and work on different platforms. Never had any crash issues either. Maybe the only con is that not a lot of people use it yet so what is privacy if you can't talk to others on it cause they don't use it.

Overall: I hope more and more people will start to use Telegram so I could ditch other messaging apps like Messenger who don't care about your privacy. Untill then I will use it moderatly with the people I know have it.

it's very good to have desktop version of this software. It's very useful and fast. I even use it for transfering files form desktop to phone.

I can transfer photos without compression. Some services like Telegam transfer photos only with compression, but telegram have both options, which is very useful as well.

Cons: Photo copression bug may be.

I drag and drop photos from desktop to telegram with choosing don't compress. But if i select send them as photo (after selecting without copression) it still compress the images, that is why I have to select send them as file option

Overall: Our company have Telegram group, that we send client details on it. The program is very useful.

The best messaging app I have ever used.

Pros: The consistent updates that the app gets with more and more features being added, all the functionality that bots offer (too many to count), secret chats, the app is truly multi-platform and blazingly fast, loads of integration options with services online and the cloud storage that is offered on the app.

Cons: Calls can be a bit choppy from time to time, but not that bad to be honest. I can't think of anything else to complain about with this app, I love it.

Overall: I have been using telegram as my primary source of keeping in touch with friends and family, privately and securely, as well as general communities. Moreover, telegram is the fastest way to save anything and everything across multiple platforms since it is on everything.
