If you’re not on Telegram or haven’t heard of this amazing online messaging app, you’re missing out!
Telegram is a popular multi-platform messaging app that’s widely used by this generation’s millennials and gen-Zs. It’s practical, fun, and has more features than mere communication, giving rise to a diverse pool of communities.
With multiple versions of the app available for iOS, Mac, Android, Windows, and Linux, it’s easily accessible on a variety of devices no matter what you use. As long as you’re connected to WiFi or your mobile data, you can communicate through Telegram anywhere, even from a web browser.
Telegram’s most prominent feature is security, where it pays a great deal of attention to privacy. Users feel reassured with encrypted messaging and secret chat functions, where messages can self-destruct and leave no trail.
Aside from secret chats, there’s tons of features available on Telegram such as sticker packs, groups, channels, and bots. Having 550 million monthly active users, it serves as a great platform for businesses to connect and reach out to audiences.
From news, investments, lifestyle categories to even job searches and housing (BTO) discussions, it’s incredible to find all sorts of information shared on Telegram.
