We are all familiar with the awesome instant messaging app - WhatsApp :)
What a beautiful application ! I have installed it long ago in my mobile phone, wow, magnificent ! Never had any problems with this beautiful app. So easy to use, very economical, was sending pics, videos etc., etc. :)
Now another wonderful app called Telegram has made its entry ! I installed it too in my smart phone. hmmm...its also awesome !
I researched about these two apps and found out the pros and cons of the two. I am going to share what I have learned here.
Telegram can be downloaded onto our desktop and laptop. So while we are operating our laptop or desktop we can easily use telegram. So there is no need to go for a mobile just to use instant messenger.
The desktop version is still in the beta mode; no problem, I have downloaded it. It works well.
WhatsApp will only load on mobile devices. No WhatsApp on desktops and laptops.
Telegram is fully free, forever. Means no ads, no subscription or any hidden charges. WhatsApp will ask for payment after the first year of use. Telegram is cloud based and takes no significant disk space.
Telegram messages are heavily encrypted so it is very secure.
We can form groups up to 200 members with telegram. Telegram is available in Arabic and English, a Spanish version will be ready soon.
Two interesting features :)
Secret chat and self-destruct timer for messages !
If you think you need these cool features, Valentine's day is approaching fast, go for Telegram :)
Videos of size up to 1 GB can be shared. No video call or voice messaging, if they incorporate these two, Telegram downloads will skyrocket !
Well, am I going to throw away WhatsApp ? No, I do not believe in 'use and throw policy' :). I have kept both. I have ChatON too, in built IM of Samsung mobiles :)
Do you use Whatsapp? Tried Telegram ?
