Discussion on: Telegram - The one Messenger app to rule them all

I've lived a bunch of places, and work with partners in a bunch of other places. My work phone has:

  • Telegram
  • WhatsApp
  • Skype
  • Skype for Business
  • Teams
  • Chime
  • WeChat
  • Xoom

Telegram is ok, but I go through phases of either hating or merely tolerating all of them. Except for Skype for Business, which I always hate.

I do like Telegram's ability to edit/delete messages and decent PC app (although I wish it had more in the way of settings). It's biggest problem is too many people aren't on it. =)

We used it briefly at one company. But it didn’t work well in China and didn’t want people to have to use VPN all the time, we dropped it.
