I have been using Telegram Messenger for almost a year now. It has now become my personal preference for instant chat messaging. Telegram has it all which most other Messenger apps in the market have and more, that most other apps do not. I have a lot of reasons why I like Telegram as much as I do, and I’d like to share them. Read on to find out!
This is one the best features of Telegram. Telegram allows users to share multiple photos, docs and other file types (which are not so large in size) to be shared through its cloud based service without users having them to download in their device storage. So, you need not to worry about storage when sharing multiple small files and photos. Also, telegram provides unlimited cloud storage for all its users. This time you might not need a backup service to watch for your back!
Telegram provides seamless synchronization for its users. As mentioned earlier, all of the users' messages from chats to files are all saved into telegram's cloud. When logged in multiple devices for Telegram, all of the chats are updated and files appear for download. Telegram has its own desktop app which can work independently without your phone being in proximity or connected to the internet.
This another big perk of Telegram services. Groups can as big as 200,000 members (public) or smaller (private). Public groups are completely transparent and can be searched for through Telegram or even search engines. Public groups also have their own customizable invite link(t.me/) which can be cited on websites or blogs for interested users to join. Public groups help user to chat with people globally sharing common interests or are there for a particular motive.
Private groups are more often used for people who know each other. Private groups are not transparent cannot be found using search. The powers which an admin in a telegram group can hold are far more interesting. Admins can have their own custom tiles (for example:the founder of this group). Admins while adding other admins can change these admins' permissions of what they will be capable to do in the group. Admins can also change the permissions of not only what chat-members in a group can do as a whole but also change a member's right individually. Moreover, they can bots which can only respond to them.
Members in a group can also be mentioned and replied and some messages can also be pinned for the extra attention of the users.
Bots are the most powerful tools Telegram has given to us. If you are programmer and good at using APIs, Telegram might have the perfect tool for you- Telegram API. Bots can:-
- welcome users in a group
- stop spams
- take anti-flood measures
- report statistics
- mark important messages
- fetch content (like news) from websites
- act a medium between two users when required
- and all other stuff you can think of! Truly, bots are handy when you are using Telegram for your business purposes or managing a large public group.
Private and normal text-chats have server-side encryption for securing users' chats. If the user still does not feel satisfied, he/she can start a secret chat for more security as secret chats provide an added level of encryption - the client-side encryption. Anyone who can crack a Telegram secret chat conversation can win a prize of $300,000 in the Cracking Contest.
Telegram has an arsenal of official and user made stickers and animated stickers, and integration with Giphy for gifs which can be used without downloading. Users can access gifs and stickers from the stickers panel or search for gifs using @gif followed by the gif they are searching for. There are also a handful of stickers created by some Telegram users which can be downloaded by the users and sent in the chats. Users can also create their own gifs using loop feature in videos.
Telegram provides another feature besides the awesome groups it provides. Telegram channels are one-way communication chats which a user can join to get useful information about their interests. There are channels in Telegram which provide web series, movies and discount coupons for e-shopping. I joined some of the telegram channels and found them very useful.
4. Sent messages can be deleted by the sender as well as the receiver in private chats, and in groups messsages can be deleted by the sender and the admins, without leaving any trace.
5. Wallpapers look more amazing when you use them in Telegram with its animated features for wallpapers.
7. To save any message for future use, one can easily forward it to the saved messages chat in Telegram.
10. Telegram has its own app lock making it unnecessary for third-party app locks to lock the application.
After all these features I have discussed, I find myself very attached to using Telegram. I just cannot imagine myself using another messaging application beside Telegram for chatting.
JUST LOVING TELEGRAM
