Telegram and features

Telegram and features

Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging and voice over IP service. Telegram client apps are available for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows NT, macOS and Linux. Users can send messages and exchange photos, videos, stickers, audio and files of any type.

Being a cloud messaging App, Telegram has caught the attention of many users these recent years owing to its outstanding features as could be discovered below;

Now what?

Which is better, WhatsApp or Telegram?


Based on the difference in features the tow instant messaging app offer, you could point out that, Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram is a cloud-based messenger with seamless sync. As a result, you can access your messages from several devices at once, including tablets and computers, and share an unlimited number of photos, videos and files (doc, zip, mp3, etc.) of up to 1,5 GB each. And if you don't want to store all that data on your device, you can always keep it in the cloud.

Also, Telegram can be used on multiple platforms and also supports simultaneous login on many devices. 

As per the security used, WhatsApp makes use of end-end-encryption whereas Telegram makes use of its secret chat.

If you are a developer, then Telegram API is open or everyone. Their bot API is open and allows everyone to create his/her own bots which can even be used for online marketing on the Telegram App. WhatsApp does not support bots and is not open to the public like WhatsApp.

WhatsApp carries the day when it comes to video calls which is a feature completely absent on Telegram.

File sharing on WhatsApp, unlike Telegram, is limited to only a handful — Video, photos and document files. And coupled to that,  you can not easily upload files larger than 50Mb to WhatsApp. Telegram on the other supports all file formats and permits the uploading of files of up to 1.5GB.

Our thought on this

Based on my our experience with both Messaging apps, I for one will say Telegram is a far better-messaging app than WhatsApp. Telegram is faster, has more cool and interesting features and is very good for business since you can make use of it bot for online sales, customer services and a lot more.
