Telegram is a powerful messaging app that offers high speed access to messages and files. This mobile based application connects people via a unique, distributed network of data centers around the globe. You can access your messages from all your devices at once. Start typing on your phone and finish the message from your tablet or laptop.
One of the greatest benefit accrued from using Telegram is that you can send media and files, without any limits on their type and size. Your entire chat history will require no disk space on your device, and will be securely stored in the Telegram cloud for as long as you need it. You can create group chats for up to 200,000 members, share large videos, documents of any type (.DOC, .MP3, .ZIP, etc.), and even set up bots for specific tasks. In fact, you can access earlier chats and documents that were shared when you had not joined any Telegram group.
