Telegram: The most downloaded app in the world!

in Project HOPE2 months ago
Telegram is currently the most downloaded app in the world on the Google Play Store. It is now the most preferred instant messaging app for Indians. Among the countries where telegrams were installed, India was 24 percent and Indonesia at 10 percent. The interesting thing is that whenever there is a data breach scandal in an app competing with Telegram, the number of Telegram users is increasing due to its privacy and security features.

What is a telegram?

Telegram Messenger is an open-source multi-platform instant messaging app, founded in late 2013 by Russian entrepreneur Pavel Durov. The app creator said that no ads will be published in the app or sold to any organization. If money is ever needed to run the app, users will be asked for a grant. The security of the app has been strengthened so much.

Telegram: Why is this the best messenger app?

Message Editing

You can edit any message sent to anyone. If there is any mistake in any message you send, you can easily edit and correct the message again after sending it and the corrected message will show on the receiver's chat screen.

‘Last seen’ matters

However, since Telegram is a privacy and security focused app, here you can hide your active status, that is, when you are online and when you are offline. Again, if you want, you can hide your online status from a select few.


You can add some extra features to the telegram group that you won't find on other platforms. For example, user verification, public notes and group bots to automate various tasks.

This application is one of my favourites, especially the amount of bots it has and they are literally a marvel, for a while I stopped using it but now it is one of my main applications I think that eventually this app will end up displacing whatsapp for its functionalities.
