Telegram describes itself as the fastest messaging app on the market, and uses a unique, distributed network of data centres around the globe so that’s it’s not only a simple, fast, secure messaging service that’s synced across all your devices, but also has added features and an ease of operation that many prefer to WhatsApp.
Everything on Telegram (chats, groups, media, etc.) is encrypted using a combination of 256-bit symmetric AES encryption. Also, the app has a clean interface, there are no adverts, and Telegram offers powerful photo and video editing tools.
Telegram is available on the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
