Move Over WhatsApp - 9 Reasons To Be On *Telegram* Instead!

What if we tell you that we have found something better than your favourite messaging app? ‘What’s better than WhatsApp?’- you might be thinking. Well, then you should know about Telegram Messenger LLP! Here are a few reasons why we think Telegram has the potential to give WhatsApp a run for its money.

1. Faster Than The Rest!

Telegram delivers messages faster than any other application. How? Well, it uses a unique decentralized network, with data centres spread all around the globe, to connect people to the closest possible server. In the comic world, you might say it’s The Flash!

2. Everything At Once?

You can access messages from all your devices at once. Start typing on your phone and finish the message from your laptop or desktop or Mac or tablet. Data syncing has never felt more fun and less work, has it?

3. Unlimited Storage!

No more of those chat history dilemmas. Unlike WhatsApp, where your chat history and other media takes up space on your mobile, the Telegram cloud requires no disk space. That means unlimited storage!

4. Safe And Secure!

WhatsApp recently introduced encryption to keep your messages safe and secure from third-party interventions. This 3-year-old app has been doing it since 2013. Everything on Telegram, including chats, groups, media, etc. is end-to-end encrypted. They take your privacy seriously!

5. Disappearing Media, Say What?

With the new 4.2 update, Telegram has completely redesigned how media functions in today’s world. You can share large videos, send cool stickers and GIFs to friends, and self-destruct media, irrespective of the file size or type (.doc, .mp3, .zip, you name it!) How cool is that?
