You’ve heard of Telegram messenger, but have you actually tried it? Telegram is a freemium cross-platform cloud-based instant messaging service. In addition to the standard messaging feature, it offers file sharing, end-to-end encrypted video calling, and VoIP. The app was first launched on 14 August 2013, but recently became available for Android users. If you’d like to learn more about it, read on! Here are a few things you should know before you download it.
Adding more members: Telegram lets you create groups for your friends or colleagues. Groups are a great way to collaborate and share information. You can create groups for unlimited number of members and toggle persistent history. You can also appoint administrators with granular permissions, or pin important messages to the top of your screen. It’s important to note that groups on Telegram have more privacy settings than Facebook or Twitter, so it may not be suitable for group chats.
Secure communications: The application boasts two layers of encryption. In private and group cloud chats, you can choose to send messages encrypted with AES. When you send a media file, you can set a self-destruct timer to ensure that your message remains private. End-to-end encryption also ensures that no one can read the contents of your communications. Its privacy-friendly security measures are another attractive feature. The app allows you to store media files up to 2GB in size.
