Fast and safe messaging for all

Telegram is a super-fast, simple, seamless and super-free messaging service. As a cloud-based service it means you won’t have to worry about size. Think of it as SMS and email merged to meet and please your texting, sharing and productivity needs.

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. 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 5000 people or channels for broadcasting to unlimited audiences. You can write to your phone contacts and find people by their usernames.

Not only Telegram gets you connected but it also roots for your security. You can encrypt personal and business secrets, destruct messages with a timer, store all your media in the cloud and, if you have any coding skills, you can lend your knowledge to your own tools on their API.

Telegrams’ servers are worldwide spread for security and speed, it keeps your messages safe from attacks and has no size limit for your media and chats.

Oh, and have we mentioned?
Telegram is free. Forever. No ads and no subscription fees.

Reviews From google play store

It's absolutely AMAZING❤ I love everything about it. The username function is SMART. Thank you so much for respecting your users:-) The latest features of PRIVACY like profile photo are BRILLIANT. Love them. We feel so revealed now. Thanks a million for everything and the great changes. Although I agree that the deleting chats on both sides is a bit extreme and confusing! it's a good feature just wishing it would exist only for secret chats.

I've always prefer Telegram over the typical counterpart. Never have I uninstall it since I started using it. However, dear App Developer, please do check on your latest update. I've having notification error with my Huawei Nova phone after the latest update. Kindly look into it as the only way I know someone sent me a message is by opening the app. Your assistance is highly appreciated. Keep being awesome!

I love Telegram and it's been my favourite messenger since it appeared. However, now, with people being able to delete MY messages, it's no longer a messenger, just a device for a talk. And I'll seriously consider stop using it for any business-like conversation: how can you prove that you wrote something if it's no longer there? I think, there should be an option to disallow other people remove my messages, and if one needs secrecy and security, they have secret chat for that.

I've used this app exclusively to text my boyfriend for a year, switching from Discord. Best app to use if you're cross platform (iOS/Android) and don't get all the bells and whistles that come with iMessage. Fantastic for group chats and channels as well. Additionally, the stickers are the best feature ever, along with all the fun themes and the ease of sending video and audio snippets. I love telegram!!!

Lightyears ahead of everyone else. Voice calling is OK but not great . It's beautiful BUT more transparency always welcome. Loses 2 stars because of explicit and non child safe stickers / gifs. Lots of sexual stickers makes this app not family friendly.. Still not fully open source. This reduces trust in the messenger. Easily it can be The best, most powerful and versatile, messaging app out there.

Спасибо за прекрасную программу. Видно что вы ее улучшаете с каждым днем все больше и больше. Собственно, могли бы вы добавить возможность выбора места хранения медиа данных? Например на СД карту. Т. к. удалять их каждую неделю напрягает. Спасибо. Thank you for good app. I see that you upgrade it, and every day Telegram becomes better. So, can you add an ability to change storage place of media files. E. g. to SD card. It's difficult to delete files every week. Thanks.

Hello, and thank you on behalf of all visually impaired around the world for making Telegram Messenger accessible for us. This will make Telegram Messenger one of the most widely used messengers among visually impaired. as a group of visually impaired in Iran, we came up with some points, which we believe that these points can make telegram more useful for visually impaired. Hope you pay attention to these points. these are as follows: 1. Voice message sender’s name cannot be announced by Talkback. 2. Uploading and downloading progress cannot be announced by Talkback. 3. download status cannot be announced by Talkback. 4. Message status (sent or seen) cannot be announced by Talkback. It would be better if Talkback announces it before reading message body. 5. Music and video duration cannot be announced by Talkback. 6. File size cannot be announced by Talkback. 7. Number of views in channels cannot be announced by Talkback. 8. Backward and forward seek control cannot be detected by Talkback both in music and video. A good example of detectable seek control is used in Google play music.

It seems okay so far except one feature could be improved. When inviting a contact to join it defaults to sending a text. I'm on the other side of the world from all my friends so never text, instead I email or whatever social media platform I am using to keep in touch. Can the settings default to email or am I missing something i.e the option is already there.

Best App Ever, pls pls pls, its time to separate all channels, groups, bots in unique Tab, now its growing so fast, its time to category all in the uniquely tab, so it can find easily... Some times confusing, looking for channels or bots or group's.... I know you're going to do it, but please quickly And by the way, thanks for new privacy updates, may pple don't like it at first, but give it time. Thank you so much for best, secured social app EVER.

The best messenger ceated ever. It is fast, secure, reliable and user-friend. I believe it has the potential to replace even media and some aspects of real world by adding some new features. But last two updates would impact its reliablity and good feeling. I suggest roll back the updates applied after February 2019 throughly. The changes are totally unnecessary.

Perfect app for messaging. Great personalization and fast delivery of messages and videos. I personally really like the fact it's cloud based, so I can always download old files I sent. A thing I really dislike is not being able to select a preferred emoji pack, like in the desktop version. I would love it if it were added!

Hello, thank you for making Telegram Messenger accessible for blind people. I have found some bugs in Telegram accessibility. I’ll write some of them. Please fix these bugs if it’s possible۱. It is better that the cursor automatically focus on the message editbox when someone opens a chat such as WhatsApp. ۲. If there is a link in a caption, it is not possible to click on that link. ۳. When you are moving on chat list, Talkback slows down if page is going to changed. .

I've been using Telegram for years and I've never had any problems. However, since the last update, I'm not receiving message notifications. I have to open the app, after which I receive the notification. I have tried altering both the app and the phone settings, uninstalling and re-installing the app, yet nothing seems to work. I see the messages hours after I receive them, because the lock screen (and any other) notifications don't seem to work and I rarely remember to open the app.

I love this app. It promises to be the best and most efficient messanger app ever known to man. A few things to be added though to effect that: 1. Please ADD STATUS where we can advertise or tell about our day. 2. Please ADD VIDEO calling option. Almost all messanger apps have that today, why not Telegram? 3. Please ADD REACTIONS so that we can like or show other emotions on message even while we're chatting especially on a group chat. Please add these in the next version updates. Good work!!!

Overall it's a good app. Fast and user friendly. However theres one pretty annoying thing. Whenever you've got a message and have already started replying to it via Android Notification - u might miss notification about any new messages. Especially if after sending a reply u won't chech the app. Moreover those messages are marked as Read.

I don't think any other can make better than telegram app. 👏🏻Best thing of this app is, we can use this app in more than one device. And in almost any desktop OS. I love this app. U know what is amazing thing about this app. Some features of this even whatapp could not provide.,And whatapp also copy it's features. People are not aware about that because they use whatapp a lot but they don't know it just copy paste. Keep it up telegram you are smarter than any other messaging app in android.

Its a smooth app, we have a group chat and it's quite fun but the only issue i feel it has is that it lacks a group call option please include it soon. The annoying problem I've been facing is that it shows that I'm online when im actually not Can you guys from tg creators help me solve this?

The new telegram's ability to clear messages is very awful and annoying. And even more likely to be exploited! Why should the otherone be able to erase even my messages? And this may be a waste of my right! If someone wants to delete a message, they can use the chat secret feature. But this feature is very annoying in the normal chat. If the telegram does not remove this feature, I will delete it!!

I have more than 1000 contacts. The chat history has a new entry for each contact who has joined telegram irrespective of any chat between us. Thus, soon I will have 1000 chat histories only mentioning that this person has joined telegram. this is useless and there is no way to disable it. also, to delete a chat, it needs at least 3 taps. please correct this.

Thanks for this app. I have a problem : I try to find a way to save media files downloaded from telegram DIRECTLY to sd card instead of device storage, but I can't. Please help me to fix it if there is a way for it. Thank you again. "Samsung galaxy J7 prime"

After the demise of Allo, the soon to come ads on WhatsApp, I installed Telegram to give it a try. I must say that Telegram surprised me. Clean UI, all functionality needed (sent files, voice calls, sent location even with live preview, tons of free stickers, group chats, channels) and all this for free. All this makes it the best messenger app I currently use.

Telegram is such an amazing app! i can even send voice messages and photos while i use my data outside which other apps cant do totally recommend it! BUT SADLY i can't understand why the new update gives the chance for another person to delete our chat. IT WAS A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE SO IF TELEGRAM YOU SEE THIS PLEASE HELP ME RETRIEVE IT!

The new update which allows you to delete the messages of both sides of a private chat from the beginning of the world till now is awful!! Very ridiculous!! Someone gets angry with you, they can simply delete what they or you have sent via chat! No app has ever done that and if telegram doesn't bring back the old setting, I'll definitely uninstall it.

sorry for putting up negative comment here. has been deleting and installing the apps numerous times and yet still did not receive the code. *solution: i downloaded telegram x and found out that all the codes were sent to telegram x inbox. i then install telegram and received the code in telegram x. problem solved.

So this is it. After using Telegram for a long time and loving it, we have the worst update in history at our hands. We absolutely shouldn't have to option to reach the other's device and remove messages on them. I don't want to have the power not have to feae that the other party abuses it too. This has to at best be limited on Secret Chats and not at all private chats

Ever send a text to the wrong person? Send something then immediately regret it? Worried your text will be shared with others without your knowledge or consent? TELEGRAM is the stopgap. As long as you're using the "Private Message" option, you can "unsend" anything within that private message and it will be wiped clean from both phones. you can also send up to 50 pictures in one message, or videos without sacrificing the quality/resolution.

please this latest update about privacy is very poor! and not cool.. many are complaining about it! how can you delete a conversation of the other party! its no longer an interractive app, its no longer a chat, its not secured any more, this particular act will increase fraudulent activities and not free will to chat.. please review that particular private and restore it to the previous one.. thanks

I totally like it, I always recommend my friends to use it and I personally stopped using all other messaging apps when I met this little beast TELEGRAM. I can confidently say "THIS IS THE FASTEST, MOST SECURE MESSAGING APP ON THE NET AT THE MOMENT AND PERHAPS FOR EVER".

The Best App! Almost all requirements got fulfiled. Suggestions: 1. Admin should have rights to delete the messages posted by others form the group. 2. Posted messages we can not view who has seen and read the message along with its time. 3. In the group if we have to add new member, we have to scroll down all members; then we getting the option to add new member which irritates to scroll down when you have more than 300 members in a group. "Add new" member option should have in beginning.

I don't understand that when a person report an individual before you limit an account you investigate or you just limit as long as someone complain. If you in a networking business your competitors can report you to limit you, or people with different agendas if they don't have their way may report you. So before you limit someone account please have valid proof. A person must send you the conversation before limiting someone account.

It's one of the best apps I've used. Privacy system very strong. There's game inside to play with friends and family. Ability to add stickers using our faces is rather cool!! updated as of April 2019: The connection for telegram has gone from bad to worse. The word connecting keeps appearing although I have internet signal. No problem with using internet on other apps. Only telegram shows offline status.

This new privacy focused update just sucks. Nobody had ever want this, you did it, and now people can erase memories. I no longer have mental safety when I use Telegram. And now my whole experience of Telegram is ruined. Just remove this so called feature.

Overall a good App. The option to delete messages from Private Chat should extend to Group Chats too. It is impossible to maintain conversation content when it grows a lot in group chats now. Only option which exists is to clear the whole conversation history. Instead, In both types of Chats selection of portions to delete should be present and any delete should be made applicable for that user who deletes the conversation. Meaning other parties can still have the conversation on their devices.

hi telegram teams. its a wonderful apps for my leasure & working. but since i changed my phone to samsung a30, it doesnt work really good. i cant read latest message! it like pending message. i tried to uninstall & reinstall it back but still remained the same problems. please fix it.

I am looking for an app to replace BBM and this one looked good but the settings for removing popups is complicated and it turns itself back on frequently. it is frustrating and time consuming to remove the popups again. This app could also use better stickers and a PING function.

Worst experience... . Not ever showing the download progress and you couldn't know whether the file is getting downloaded.. I tried reinstall it but never allowed me to log in. It says 'too many attempts, please try later' every time...

I love telegram, it's my main platform for talking to people and I would be out of a social life without it. the problem is that now people can delete your PM's, both on their side and your side, which can be greatly exploited. So until this gets fixed I'll keep the 2 star rating, when it does get fixed I'm giving telegram 5 stars.

why someone can delete all conversation and messages between us for me in this new update???? it's totally rediculous and awful😡i hate this ability😠it has no more privacy for me to talk to someone with this app. I had used this app since it get start and now I can't use it anymore. I wanna know who thought this ability would be a great idea???!!!!!

The telegram has gotten so bad in this last month! I have no privacy! Anyone can erase my messages! The appearance of the software is a buggy telegram😡 Please delete the ability to delete the message from the message and the message for a long time and use the old message removal rule, which lasted for 48 hours. ... Change the appearance of the sticker part as well. I am dissatisfied.😡😡😡 Just remember to apply long message restrictions!

This app was perfect untill you added the deleting anyone's messages feature. I sometimes use this app for talking about business with my customers but I'll now be taking that to a different platform. It could be so dangerous to any business if a customer used that ability to remove our messages to make it seem as if we're ignoring/not responding to them. Including that feature in the update is such a terrible(I want to say 'stupid') move and hope it gets removed as soon as.
