Telegram overview

Telegram (was Messenger for Telegram) is a messaging app with a focus on speed. It's fast, simple and free.

With Telegram, you can create group chats with up to 200 people so you can stay connected with everyone at once. Plus, you can share videos up to 1GB, send multiple photos from the web, and forward any media you receive in an instant. All your messages are in the cloud, so you can easily access them from any of your devices.

The developers built Telegram to make messaging safe again so you can take back your right to privacy.

If you need an iOS version, you can download it here.

What’s new in version 9.3.1

Updated on Jan 16 2023

Hidden Media
  • Media with spoiler effects. You can wrap photos and videos you send in a fuzzy cover by selecting media in the attachment menu and tapping (⋯) > Hide With Spoiler.
Zero Storage Usage
  • Auto-remove cached media. You can choose how long cached media is kept in Private Chats, Groups, and Channels – and add exceptions for specific chats.
  • Removing media by type. Separate tabs with Media, Files, and Music from all chats let you quickly clear the largest files.
  • Pie charts. The new design helps you see what's taking up space.
  • Dwarves with calculators. Cache size is now calculated a lot faster.
  • Reminder: All cached media you remove remains accessible in the cloud and can be re-downloaded if needed.
Profile Pictures for Your Contacts
  • Setting pictures for your contacts. You can choose your own picture for a contact – only you will see it on their profile.
  • Suggested profile pictures. When editing your contacts, you can suggest a photo for their profile. It will take them just two taps to add the picture you suggested.
  • Public profile pictures. If you only allow certain users to see your profile photos, you can set a public picture for everyone else.
  • Ultimate profile picture privacy. You can set 'Who can see my profile photos' to 'Nobody' and add some users or groups as exceptions.
Hiding Members in Large Groups
  • Member list privacy. Owners of large groups can hide the list of members.

MACUPDATE ADMIN: It is time for you to remove this listing. You are a Ukraine-based site, are you not? Despite the 'owner' in Dubai's statements to the contrary, the encryption is proprietary and controlled by the Russian gov't - this application is NOT safe to use. I call on you to block it from your site on ethical grounds. The NATO powers even warned Ukraine military to stop using it ASAP.

Stop being paranoid! Nobody wants pictures of your cats. Nobody reads you - if you do not violate the laws of the country in which you live. Choose the application that you like best, and don't fu** yourself and others' brains. I choose Telegram.

Proprietary crypto - do not use. You can use xmpp, matrix or Signal instead. All of which are open source and xmpp and matrix are decentralized.

Avoid. Russian spyware. If you do a search on what which ip's it uses, you can also block it with your personal firewall. In this day and age, you'd be out of your mind to use anything designed in Iran, China or the Russian Federation, etc.

Telegram web allows me to use the spellchecker and even Grammarly, which the desktop PROGRAM (use 'app' when you're talking with your little sister!) doesn't. I hope that soon an upgrade will include this option, THANKS :-)

When I download Telegram on editor site, it cames in a dmg. When I download it here it cames in a zip file. Why ? Has MacUpdate modify the app another time to add some crapware ? That's suspect !
