What is Telegram Messenger? Review of Telegram for PC

Telegram is a great messaging app used to connect different online users.Many online users have private chat apps, the most popular of them all being WhatsApp and for good reason. Telegram however is different from most and one of the major reasons is the capacity of people a Telegram group or channel can contain. One telegram group can contain more than 30 to 50 thousand users at once, very comfortably. 

Telegram is a cloud based app. What it automatically entails is that if you mistakenly lost your phone today and needed to recover even your phone contacts for example,  all you may need to do is download the Telegram app and log in. Your old chats remain intact. Your group chats, older and new ones remain in place also.

It is most interesting to know that this app is Free. 

Video calls and voice calls are amazing on Telegram. You are able to express yourself with all their awesome, vividly animated stickers. Besides, it is built in such a customisable way. You can add the theme you like or not for your chats. You never lose an uploaded display picture on Telegram. It is always saved in a library created by Telegram for that reason alone, right beside the one viewed by everyone. Another good feature is if you stay offline for up to 6 months and more, your account will automatically delete itself.


Cool Telegram app Features

  • Very beautiful and animated stickers
  • Voice chat feature 
  • Retention of old messages in addition to new ones.
  • High quality Video and voice calls. 
  • Contact saving feature
  • Free app
  • Cloud based 
  • Group for up to 200,000 users.
  • Chats are encrypted 


Why choose Telegram Vs Whatsapp/Signal/FB Messenger?

First of all, your server space never runs out. There's unlimited space on the Telegram platform and this in itself is a major need. So many people perform a lot of activities online. To have a cloud space where all your stuff remains nomatter how many times you log out or delete the app is so useful.

Secondly, if you wanted to use Telegram across all your devices at the same time, you can. This is so important because you don't need to log out of one device to log into another. All you need to do is download and use your app. There are many more reasons but check them out below. 

Advantages of using Telegram

  • All your messages are stored in their cloud which is unlimited. Same goes for all your contacts. 
  • You can compress your videos especially with Telegram or not. 
  • The group capacity is up to 200,000 users maximum. 
  • You can use your Telegram almost on any platform at all. There's one adaptable to every single platform.
  • You can employ the use of bots on your app.
  • You are able to send almost any type of file. 
  • You are able to use Telegram without showing your number to anyone. You can simply use a username. 



  • When compared to WhatsApp, not a lot of people use Telegram. This might be counterproductive if you mostly function there.

  • Separated drawers for groups

    By gnuwarrior (Pcmac user)

    I am part of many groups on Telegram, many of which I don't really check all the time, only once a week or less, but they keep poping up contantly in my contacts list every time one of the thousands of members write a message, getting in the way of the contacts and small groups that I do want to see all the time. My suggestion is to be able to hide some groups or put them inside a folder. Maybe also a functionality for "grouping groups" also.
  • very important feature that missed in macOS version

    By AhmadrezA_6248 (Pcmac user)

Thanks for reading.❤️
  • The appearance setting has problem

    By Nimabrn (Pcmac user)

    Since in the new version (5.8) the appearance has become changed, I could not use dark appearnce (System theme) with my custom colors. Please add feature to be able to change the accent color regardless of system preferences, like iOS version. Beside, in the chat background, when we select a dark color as background, the pattern would not be white and has a red tint. The appearance setting just like iOS version makes this app flawless.
  • Better than Telegram Desktop

    By wleuschner (Pcmac user)

    Telegram for macOS is a good attempt. It has a much smaller binary size than Telegram Desktop, it uses native AppKit UI components, and it runs much lighter on resources. However, it seems to be designed to match the iOS interface, right down to the navigation paradigm :/ It shirks macOS interface conventions left and right, leaving long-time Mac users somewhat disappointed. I look forward to future updates where the developer works toward a more Mac-like interface!
