Telegram for Mac8.1.4

11 October 2021

Messenger based on the MTP protocol.

What is Telegram for Mac

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 Telegram

Version 8.1.4:
Chat Themes
  • Choose one of 8 new preset themes for any individual private chat.
  • Click (⋯) in a chat then 'Change Colors' to pick a theme.
  • Both chat participants will see the same theme in that chat - on all their devices.
  • Each new theme features colorful gradient message bubbles, beautifully animated backgrounds and unique background patterns.
  • All chat themes have day and night versions and will follow your overall dark mode settings.
  • More chat themes coming soon.
Interactive Emoji
  • Some animated emoji now have fullscreen effects.
  • Send :fireworks:, :party_popper:, :balloon:, :pile_of_poo:, :thumbs_up: or :heart: to any private chat, then tap on the animated emoji to launch the effect.
  • If your chat partner also has the chat open, you will both see the effects and feel the vibrations simultaneously.
  • See the "Watching" status when your chat partner is enjoying emoji effects with you.
  • More interactive emoji coming soon.
  • Read Receipts in Small Groups
  • Select one of your outgoing messages in small groups to see who recently viewed it.
  • To protect privacy, read receipts are only stored for 7 days after the message was sent.
  • Record Live Streams and Video Chats
  • Record video and audio from live broadcasts in your group or channel.
  • Admins can start recording from the Settings.
  • Choose between recording in portrait or landscape orientation.
  • Finished recordings are sent to the admin's Saved Messages and can be easily shared.

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 !

Very conflicted about this app. It works well, it's multiplatform and the themes are cool. BUT. There seem to be privacy issues. I read that Telegram recently evesdropped on protesters and helped the Iranian regime. Is that right?

I use it to connect to my wife and daughters. It is always reliable. iMessage failed too often so we gave up on that. WhatsApp is often okay but sometimes fails. Until Telegram lets us down (if ever) it gets 5 stars from me.

For me it is the best messenger app around, partly because you don't need a smartphone (just for registering) and it is available on all platforms/devices. On the other hand the people behind Telegram are pushing updates with new features quite every month.

Best messenger ever. It is very fast, light, easy to use and join, cross-platform and free for all the platforms. It is my favorite one. It is very handy to add photos, share videos and links. A lot of funny stickers and emoji. You can also follow different popular channels from social networks. Hats off to the developers!

It's really very fast. I think this is the most considerable advantage. Moreover, Telegram can be a good alternative to other social messengers as it also has an option to share not only text but photos. I also like that simple and user-friendly design.

As it is stated in the description above, the app is fast, simple and free. I've been using it for a while on two different Macs (2014 MBA and 2011 iMac) and I haven't seen any glitches, freezes or things like that. I mean no issues at all, which is pretty impressive. To start using the app, you should download, install and launch it, enter your phone number and then the verification code you receive. I like this system as it's simple and comprehensible. If you need a decent, lightning-fast third-party messaging application, Telegram is worth a try.

Best messenger app of all for me... easy to handle... with a klick on a symbol you can send in a cryptic safe mode... its safer than whatsapp when sending from iOS to android and iOS to iOS....and so much more sympatic. And a desktop version exist too for win and mac and its free..nothing more to say.

On the dev website, there's another version named "Telegram Desktop" https://desktop.telegram.org That version is several versions "behind" the Cr*p Store's. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that one is the "real" open source version. I'm not too sure open source software can make it to the Cr*p Store. At least I do not remember having seen any there, but I'm not too much a fan of that shop either....
