Telegram is a multiplatform cloud-based messenger app with a firm focus on security, and a massive user base thanks to its intuitive design, ease of use, and low-resource usage.
With a design optimized for speed and some of the best security technology in the industry, Telegram quickly established itself as one of the most trusted platforms available.
Since its initial release on August 14, 2013, Telegram has steadily grown to a 2018 user-base of just over 200-million members.
Across fourteen different languages, Telegram supplies an ever-growing open-source messaging platform which has even expanded to third-party chat bot support.
From file sharing of media up to 1.5 gigabytes in size, to group support reaching sizes as large as 100,000 members with ease, Telegram is a secure messenger which is becoming a “go-to” for many businesses.
