Whatsapp may be the best player in the game when it comes to instant messaging apps, but Telegram Messenger is the entire game itself.

Here are 10 Reasons why I switched to Telegram Messenger and maybe you should too.

Unlike our dear friend WhatsApp who sold itself to Facebook and is now reading our chats to show us better ads(LOL). Telegram is very particular about user privacy and does not leak or share any user information.

Telegram has been funded pretty well so it is completely free.

One of the major problems with these mobile chat applications is that they do not work elsewhere. What if you want to access those messages on your computer? Or Web browser?

Whereas Telegram runs on Almost Every Major platform like –

telegram for windows, linux, mac, windows phone, mac osx

So no matter what device you are using. Telegram is always available.

Unlike other apps that depend on your phone’s storage to store chats and media, Telegram saves everything on the cloud. So it is accessible via all platforms.

4. It Never Hangs!

When you open WhatsApp after some time and there are thousands of messages, your phone is unable to handle that much data and it hangs up.

5. File Sharing

With Telegram, you can share whatever you what and each file can be up to 1.5 GB in size at max.

Telegram has this feature called bots that are basically third party services integrated into Telegram.

So you can access many features from outside telegram within telegram. To give you a perspective of what Bots are, here are a few bots –

And Much more. You can even Create your own bots with the Telegram Bot API.

Groups in Telegram offer some amazing features. Apart from a group Name and photo.

And this limit may increase in the future.

Telegram channels are basically used as  Broadcast messages to share information or media.

The Problem

So after reading this article maybe you decide to use Telegram but who are you going to message on Telegram? None of your friends or family use it.

Share this article with them. Let them try it once. I am sure they’ll love it. If you are a technical person move your technical groups to Telegram. It’s totally worth the small effort.

Telegram Messenger is way ahead of any other chat messaging application or service. It allows you to use the service free of cost from virtually every existing device. It offers absolute privacy and security to its users without the cost of reducing functionality.

However, Telegram does not own a big market share as of now, but things are changing and the recent few months have attracted a significant number of new users.
