Telegram: The Swiss Army Knife of Messaging Software

Reviewed a month ago

Telegram has helped a lot in my graphics business. I was able to join channels that allow me to find freelance graphic design jobs. I was able to deliver most of the paid works on Telegram because I could send documents in their actual, uncompressed sizes. And because Telegram's local and cloud backup feature was so efficient, most of my work, messages with clients and sent and/or received files were always saved across all devices.

Pros

The main thing about Telegram, of course, is too many features! For messaging software, Telegram offers more and does more. I can delete messages at any point in time for both me and the person I'm messaging. I can customize my interface with my preferred colour schemes (I am a huge fan of customization). I can search for channels that offer services on anything ranging from Movies, games, news about new trends and the latest graphic designs. And that is just the tip of the iceberg!

Cons

The irony is, that what I like most about Telegram is also what I like least. It has so many features that I forget it's primarily a messaging app. Also, the UI customization is quite complicated and hard to grasp, it took me quite some time to work my way around it. The PC app also does not have the feature to automatically resume downloads when they are cancelled for some reason. And the most common grouse almost every Telegram user has. It is not visually appealing.

Interactive app for Team communication

Reviewed a month ago

Till date my experience has been satisfactory, for my professional task I shifted from whatsapp to telegram because I can search for target groups and join them, every app has some pros n cons but at user level my overall experience is good.

Pros

You can add any number of participants in Team groups, that what makes it different from other chat apps, communications is easy, creating a group is easy with contacts, search options works amazing and can connect with target work groups globally.

Cons

The look and feel, customization should be there, only two themes are there dark and light. security is enabled but too many spam groups are there, at time it become tough to understand which one is the safest one. Chances of hacking is there, I saved few messages in past but 2-3 months back after an update I am unable to view those messages, also after update app it was working bit crazy, no code was been send, had to switch off my device and then it worked fine.

Telegram doesn't look like any social media app, it helps me to be productive and focused. I have a lot of educational channels inside it that give me tons of information daily or weekly. Another amazing thing is that it's very customizable, I can adjust every small detail to fulfill my taste.

Cons

Most of my friends always complain that the notifications appear very late on their phones, which makes it difficult to communicate with them fastly.

Safe and Secure Chatting App

Reviewed 7 months ago

Really amazing experience with Telegram. In short, the program provided me with all the features I needed, such as sharing files of various formats and sizes. Full control over privacy and security settings. It also enabled me to create interactive channels and take advantage of the bot to provide services to my clients. All this and more for free, I am completely satisfied with this program and highly recommend it

Pros

Telegram is one of the best social media programs I have used I really like the protection of privacy data and this is very important to me. I can customize data sharing, information, appearance status, etc. very nicely. The most important thing that I love about Telegram is the ability to easily share files of very large sizes, up to two gigabytes. When you share photos with friends, the photos keep their original quality, unlike some other chat programs that reduce the quality of the photos.

Cons

I always struggle with the quality of voice and video calls. I am experiencing a lot of stuttering and sound delay even though I am using a very fast internet.

It is a really awesome app. I love it so much that it is in my most favorite and most used apps. I use it for anything and everything.

Pros

It is cross-device compatible. It works great on all devices with really awesome features. The search engine is quite handy as it gives me multiple results almost seems universal. I probably use it more than Google. The ability to send large files is definitely one of my most favorite features

Cons

I'll begin by saying nothing is perfect in this world and this applies here. Having said that I feel like it is almost perfect except for just a few things. It lacks the blocking feature for blocking people I want to ignore. The user interface could be better organized especially the settings. I really to struggle to find some of the settings eg when I want to clear data to free up my storage. It took me a while to get to it. Sometimes the search engine doesn't show me all available searches while if I use another persons account it brings different searches than mine.

Telegram Review

Reviewed 7 months ago

Telegram offers a number of features that set it apart from other apps. The application's registration process is simple, and it provides a number of security features. Text conversations can also include Emojis and stickers, and voice calls are of high quality. It is the best chatting application in the world!! It has excellent and fast voice access between the two parties, video calls are of high quality up to FHD with sound consistency with the picture, privacy settings have many options, the processing menu offers many operations that make it easier for the user to use the application, and it is the best chatting application in the world!

Pros

Telegram boasts more security features than any other chat software, with the Secret chat encryption feature demonstrating its privacy and security the finest. It's quick and secure, and the recipient receives data quickly. We can share up to 1 GB of video as well as many photographs and photos. It also includes a vast cloud-based storage memory, allowing us to save our cellphone's memory capacity while storing data in the cloud. We may share the actual-size file over Telegram. Animation and stickers are attractive and appealing.

Cons

As with everything, there is a counter-argument. Despite the fact that Telegram is an application that gets better with each version. It lacks some of the details that other similar apps, like as Stories, include. As a user, I've seen people say that they don't use Telegram because it doesn't allow them to post tales; if it did, Telegram would be their preferred messaging service. To make it easier or more intuitive for some people, I'd like the call and video call buttons to be combined.

Animation and stickers are fancy and favorable.

Cons

Telegram does not have the short story feature as most of the users like to share what they are doing through short clips or pics. it does not support video calls and we know due to the Covid pandemic most of the world is shited to video calls rather than physical conferences or meetings. the sender can delete the message from chats which creates confusion of what thing was talked about in between.

Best Small Office Communications Tool For Us

Telegram has been a great tool since the first day we started using it. It has almost completely replaced email for all internal uses. The native desktop app has always been treated well and has had great compatibility with the mobile and web versions. Fast sharing of large files remotely that are stored server side has been in invaluable tool countless times, searching history for tidbits of information has saved countless hours of head ache, and best of all for the six years we've been using it we've had no major issues or outages.

Pros

- Forever history, with good search tools. - Local backups. - Geraniums file limits and storage. - Great UI customization. - Spell checking. - Group chat - Channels

Cons

- Stickers and GIFs can be distracting in a professional tool. - Not a huge market share for social notifications, but the followers you do get are more dedicated. - Contacts can delete history with you, and it will delete your history of them as well.

The Perfect All-in-One Messaging Platform

Reviewed 8 months ago

Email is a bit outdated nowadays. For a digital marketing agency owner like me, it's very important to use a secured instant messaging service. I am always concerned about my data privacy and I was looking for a platform that doesn't lack any features also, which proves me a good privacy option. Telegram does the best in both cases. So I am quite satisfied with Telegram and the fun fact is that I have convinced some of my clients and friends to shift to Telegram. They are also satisfied with the overall service. The Saved Messages option in this app lets you use your Telegram account just like cloud storage. This is very convenient when I want to collect a file on the go for future use.

Pros

Telegram is undoubtedly the best instant messaging service out there. In every aspect, this tool crushes its competitors. But if I have to mention the thing that I like most about this platform, I will mention the ability to send large files. I use this tool to communicate with my team members. Sometimes, I have to send files of different formats to have quick feedback from the people. Telegram helps me to do this in an intuitive way. Also, I can use Telegram Web on my desktop browser without even installing the app. This is very convenient while working on the go. Moreover, all the chatting features are available on this just like other regular messaging apps.

Cons

Nothing is perfect in this imperfect world. But honestly speaking, Telegram messenger is almost perfect. But there are a few things that I don't like about this app. For example, the user interface could have been a bit more organized. Sometimes, I have to struggle a bit to find some settings from the menu itself. But other than that there is nothing that I hate actually.

Perfect substitute for WhatsApp

Reviewed 8 months ago

We are a distributed organization with employees from different time zones and by switching to Telegram we have our communications organized by topic, use hashtags for easy reference, pin messages to highlight useful information, create polls that help decision making, integrate with other services for holiday notifications, automate important notifications, etc.

Pros

It's free and that makes it perfect in the value-cost ratio, since you would need a paid plan in other services to get similar features. The transition from WhatsApp was really easy... you can even export chats so you preserve the history of your communications. You can do so much more in Telegram compared to WhatsApp and it's strictly better in terms of privacy and security of the data you're sharing. The sole fact that it isn't owned by Facebook is more than enough to switch over your whole company to Telegram.

Cons

If someone has used WhatsApp (which everyone has at this point) it will be a no brainer to switch and start using Telegram, so there aren't really cons.

Telegram is optimized for speed, simplicity, and security. It uses end-to-end encryption, which means...

Pros

Telegram is a messaging app, but it's more than just a messaging app. It's a fully functioning communications platform, offering users everything you'd expect from a traditional communications app, and more. Telegram's messaging features are virtually identical to WhatsApp, but Telegram offers three additional features that set it apart: 1. Secret chat 2. Secret chats, or end-to-end encryption, allow users to communicate without sharing any information with third parties. This is typically used for sensitive conversations, such as personal communications, or conversations involving financial transactions. 3. Voice and video chat Telegram also offers voice and video chat, allowing users to make audio and video calls with other users.

Cons

Telegram Messenger has some limitations. For example, you can only send up to 50 messages at once, and there's no option for voice calls. Also, the app has mandatory ads and in-app purchases. It's important to note that Telegram offers end-to-end encryption, but the company does retain access to user messages.
