    Telegram : the whatsapp replacement (Android, iOS)


    Description
    Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security. It’s superfast, simple, secure and free.

    Telegram is a secure messenger that you can switch to without having to say goodbye to any of your favorite features.

    With Telegram, you can create group chats with up to 100 people so you can stay connected with everyone at once. Plus, you can share videos up to 1GB, send multiple photos from the web, and forward any media you receive in an instant. All your messages are in the cloud, so you can easily access them from any of your devices.

    We built Telegram to make messaging safe again so you can take back your right to privacy.

    Why Switch to Telegram?

    FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market because it uses a decentralized infrastructure with data centers positioned around the globe to connect people to the closest possible server.

    SECURE: Security flaws in popular apps like WhatsApp have gotten a lot of bad press recently, so we made it our mission to provide the best security on the market.

    CLOUD STORAGE: Never lose your data again! Telegram offers free unlimited cloud storage for all your Telegram messages and media that you can securely access from multiple devices.

    GROUP CHAT & SHARING: With Telegram, you can form large group chats (up to 100 members), quickly share gigabyte size videos, and send all the photos you want to friends.

    RELIABLE: Built to deliver your messages in the minimum bytes possible, Telegram is the most reliable messaging system ever made. It even works on the weakest mobile connections!

    100% FREE & NO ADS: Telegram is free and will always be free. We do not plan to sell ads or introduce subscription fees.

    PRIVACY: We take your privacy very seriously and will never give third parties access to your data!

    SUPPORT:

    For real-time support, please go to settings in Telegram and select “Ask a Question” to send a message directly to our support staff (phone number 333). You can also email us at support@telegram.org.

    Telegram, which works across multiple devices and platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Firefox OS, Windows, OS X, Linux) has officially released its web-version with support for usernames.
    Be warned that it still needs some work to run without issues.

    Good to see alternatives. I can't call it a replacement though for as long as those whom I know still choose to use Whatsapp. This is one case where I wish but find it difficult to break free from the crowd.

    Telegram 2.7.0 released - adding link previews, Active Sessions and Two-Step Verification

    Link Previews
    All links to tweets, Instagram photos and YouTube videos will now be beautifully rendered so that you’ll see what the link is all about before opening it.

    Active Sessions
    The Active Sessions screen, on the Privacy and Security settings, shows all your logged in devices allowing you to close any sessions that are outdated or suspicious.

    Two-Step Verification
    Another addition to the Privacy and Security section is Two Step Verification. It allows you to set up a password that will be required every time you log into your account from a new device – in addition to the code you get in the SMS.

    Be careful though: if you forget this password, you won't be able to access your messages from other devices. We recommend setting up a recovery e-mail or at least a hint for your password, if you decide to turn on Two Step Verification.
