Hello guys. Today I am going to show you guys how to use Telegram messenger. This is going to be an all-in-one (AIO) guide. I discovered many people still don’t realize how powerful and useful this app is; always asking which channels and groups to join, hence the reason for this write-up. This list is by no means exhaustive. It’s just to get you started so you can also be on your way to becoming a power user of Telegram messenger app.
Telegram is a free cloud-based messaging and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) app similar to WhatsApp. It was developed and released in August 2013 by the Durov brothers- Pavel Durov and Nikolai Durov- who are also the developers of VK, the largest social network in Russia. Telegram has over 400 million users globally. Telegram is available on all the popular platforms- Android, iOS, Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
The Telegram messaging app offers users privacy with its end-to-end encryption feature and allows users to send any type of file. This means that it is almost impossible for any 3rd party to gain access to messages being communicated between two users without the users’ consent. This accounts for the increasing popularity of the app. This popularity was further given a push when Facebook acquired WhatsApp, the most popular messaging app.
The increasing popularity of the app and its privacy feature has made some countries and governments (e.g. Russia and Iran) make attempts to control the app usage or out-rightly ban it. Ironically, some of the apps’ largest user bases are in Iran and Russia. The app has been used for both the good, the bad, and the ugly. Now let’s dive in.
Telegram opened my eyes to a lot of possibilities. It is very immersive. Telegram revolutionized the world of technology and file sharing IMO. It’s ironic so many people still don’t realize the wealth of knowledge on, and tweaks possible with this app, and would rather stick to whatsApp. Each one has it’s merits though.
