Telegram Official Windows Phone
380

WhatsApp competitor Telegram Messenger is now available for Windows Phone

It was only last week when we learned that Ngram, an unofficial Telegram Messenger app, would become the official one, receiving approval from the Telegram team. Fast forward a few days and the changeover has now occurred in the Store, as the links to Ngram show the re-branded app as Telegram Messenger Beta v 0.14.5.27.

The whole story started a few months ago when the Telegram team decided to open source their app development in a pseudo-contest, letting numerous Telegram clone apps onto the Store (see app our roundup). Presumably the one that they liked the most becomes re-branded as the official app for Windows Phone. It’s a cool use of the talented Windows Phone developer pool, and we wish more companies would take such opportunities.

Telegram

Telegram (telegram.org) is a decentralized, cloud-based and encrypted messaging service that promises to be the fastest and most secure out there (it supports RSA 2048 encryption and Diffie–Hellman secure key exchange). It’s supposed to compete with WhatsApp and users of that service will find that Telegram feels very similar. Except it has more features, which is a damning statement about the status of WhatsApp development these days.

If Telegram Beta sounds like something you’ll want to try, just grab the link below. All Windows Phones supported.

Thanks, Zapella T., and others for the tips!

And I thought WhatsApp is back

It's possibly time to give up on WhatsApp.

I agree... But hundreds of my friends and familiy will have to also agree with that... :/

That is certainly a concern. Luckily, if you try this app, it feels a lot like WhatsApp, so transitioning people over, in theory, should be easier (no learning curve).

bitfarm says:

Easier said than done, Dan. Nobody's gonna shift. If they don't upload it again then it's time I'll have to shift to Android :(

In general, I agree, but where did all of those WhatsApp users come from ;)

chmun77 says:

And they are will be with Whatsapp for good on other platforms as they are receiving good supports, unlike us on Windows Phone. Are you ready to give up on Windows Phone if none of your friends going to use Telegram? ;)

yes, i will give up on windows phone if whatsapp doesnt come to the store again because am the only using telegram and none of my friends and families are using whatsapp.

 

ahmu86 says:

I tried to market Hike messenger with my friends who use what's app. because notifications were on time and better with hike than that shitty WA... They used hike when chatting with me for few days. Now they are back to WA. That's what happened to telegram few months back in India.
. They marketed as spam msg on what's app abt telegrams ability to send 1 gb data thru msg. Ppl used it for few days... Now every one is back to WA. But I really like Hike Messenger... Its features are WA and BBM mix...

mikosoft says:

There's that "first in field" phenomena - if you're first to put out a IM app like WhatsApp, then you're gonna have all the users. It's much harder to get new users for a new player or even woo users of the older service.

Lenin17301 says:

If WhatsApp does not return to WP then the platform is dead, simple as that, I own two Lumias and try every time to convert people to Windows Phone and away from Android, but no matter how much of a fanboy or supporter of Microsoft or WP you might be (or in the case of WPCentral being your job to cover and support it), losign WhatsApp is basically losing every little gain MS has had, it will be a hundred times worse than the Instagram situation.

Let's not kid ourselves with Telegram, BBM, Line or any other option, WhatsApp is number one, like it or not, period.

hprvez says:

Lol, nice bullshit

zzynko says:

+1

Besides, Telegram has much better security unlike the ever-changing terms of F'book and Co.
 

zzynko: You're bullshit

zzynko says:

What's BS is not knowing that WhatsApp is weakly encrypted and prone to eavasdropping. http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/02/crypto-weaknesses-in-whatsapp-the-kind-of-stuff-the-nsa-would-love/

I for one have a certain desire for privacy and security even when texting something trivial. That's what Telegram does best, don't want Fbook to slurp my phone book FWIW.

Robert Grant says:

They came from this phrase: "it's BBM, but works on any phone". That's a huge word-of-mouth advantage compared to, "It's WhatsApp, but decentralized and encrypted."

 

I really feel that RIM allowing WhatsApp on the Blackberry was a huge, huge mistake. All those loyal BBM users could gradually transition 1) onto WA, where more of their friends could participate, and then 2) off Blackberry.

leokid says:

shift to Android over whatsapp? i thot being that the servers are down mean it aint working across platforms

chmun77 says:

Is not about servers anymore. Have you not been following the news? Whatsapp is withdrawn from Windows Phone store without giving a time line of when it will be back. Craps like this only happens on Windows Phone.

BRC1711 says:

If everyone complaining about WhatsApp use it so much surely you had already downloaded it?

SpiDe1500 says:

I agree. I'll get an Lumia 930 in the next 2 weeks. In Germany, we have a law the allows it to return the device within 2 weeks without any reason. 

So.. they have 4 weeks to bring back WhatsApp. Otherwise I have to (some jobwise contacts are using WhatsApp, so ... no choice...) return it and buy an Nexus 5... sad, but true. :< I don't like WhatsApp, I would prefer unlimited MMS / SMS plans for everyone. But that is not the reality here in Europe... 

DBZo07 says:

Hey, good utilization of the concept Learning curve.. Thanks I have this in my CA syllabus. It will add to my concept. But as telegram goes, it lacks users. Many of my contacts had install Telegram and all most them has last seen of Jan-Feb. Lonely and death! :'(

kurotsuki says:

For us, maybe. But for them, why should they switch if they don't have any problem? :3

SpiDe1500 says:

I don't think you know what ur saying there. No WhatsApp is the end for Windows Phone. I am serious. You see it trough the eye of an american. But the US Market is small compared to the european market. And we in europe are using WhatsApp as an standard text app. No WhatsApp is equal to no SMS here. People will sell there phones. WP will loose marketshare in europe & around the world. Yeah, i'm not overplaying. You have no idea how important it is outside from the USA. 

dalydose says:

*lose

It's not that dramatic. Most people who use WhatsApp already have it installed. Microsoft had already said that they are assisting WhatsApp fix the problem.

SpiDe1500 says:

Thank you for the correction. I was absolutley not sure about the "loose/lose thing... ;D

 

Maybe you are right. But they have to fix it in approx. 2 weeks if they don't want to lose marketshare here in europe. Here is why: People will start to upgrade to 8.1 when the update gets public. Part of the migration is an "redownload/installation" of most of the apps - including WhatsApp. Of course... if the app is not available, the installation will fail. 

So ... when MS releases 8.1 for public, sh*t is getting serious ... 

Mdc84 says:

And besides, there are people resetting their devices, buying new phones or just uninstalling/reinstalling the app.

It's a disaster.

CGA1 says:

I live in Europe (Sweden) and I manage perfectly fine without WhatsApp, I use standard SMS and so does my friends. Probably it's because I'm old but I don't see the problem.

SpiDe1500 says:

Maybe. And maybe it's not that popular in Sweden as it is in other european countries. I don't know. Here is an source from the most popular statistics source  for students in germany: http://de.statista.com/infografik/1800/sms-versus-whatsapp/ 

The graph also shows "normal phones", so the amout of WhatsApp messages is even bigger for "smartphones-only". I hope you see the problem now ... 

Marco Gomes1 says:

Most people dont have unlimited sms in europe, especialy if you`re texting someone on a diferent country or from a diferent mobile operator. Whatsapp is so important in many european countries that even some mobile operators are letting us use for free (it wont spend any mobile data from our data plan). Also, i think you`re right about the age thing since the vast majority of whatsapp users are under 40.

v_emman says:

Yes, it's because you are old. I only use SMS when I text my mother. And I am not that young.

CGA1 says:

I use SMS when I text my son and he's not that old.

Marco Gomes1 says:

If you`re worried about windows phone loosing users in europe over whatsaap just wait until the lumia line loses the nokia branding...

 

MikeSo says:

They literally have to click a link and install an app. Not that hard. A lot more work for you to switch phones, that's for sure.

Lumio says:

Same case happened, when people were migrated to Facebook from Orkut and myspace, but it eventually happened at the end. :D

KrisJoeEll says:

Give up on WhatsApp? What does that mean? Isn't MS working on a fix right now?

Of course. And we'll keep waiting, and waiting and...

rubenbest says:

Mines still works and never had a problem.. Im never uninstalling.

rAj06 says:

My Lumia 920 screen developed yellow tint and I was planning to buy a wp again. What's app not showing any sings is making me look into buying droid again. I really love wp, but no what's app is a big deal for me.

Dean Lewis says:

WhatsApp was developing quickly and steadily. Doesn't make sense for them to exit the Windows Phone scene and give up on it - weird, they'd just stop updating but leave it up if they didn't care.

Asik15 says:

Its  time to Hate wats app not Windows Phone....

 

Dare2Blink says:

Daniel 8.1 is not even officially out as an update, I'm quite confident that by the time it is WhatsApp will be up and running. In the meantime most people who want it already have it installed anyway, and its running perfectly ( at least in my case)

Marco Gomes1 says:

We`re windows phone users. We do nothing but wait and wait and wait and in the end get disapointed. Heck, that´s why we´re the "comming soon" OS!

karmacoma says:

There's so many messaging apps better than WhatsApp. I guess telegram is the fastest one. WhatsApp is just an old habit. TIME TO SWITCH! :)

OsamaAdam98 says:

Telegram is just a rebranded Whatsapp. Just saying.

irvin792 says:

I guess I'm old, me and everyone I communicate with use actual sms

OsamaAdam98 says:

You're not old it just happens that free SMS is a standard in your country unlike everywhere else in the planet

b23h says:

me too, I was thinking of asking what the point of whatsapp was, but I see from osamaadam98 that it's all about those countries where you pay for sms...

Actually, I'd say they're inspired by WhatsApp, for sure, but the core of encrypted communication is not something at the center of WhatsApp. So security is kind of a big deal for some.

chmun77 says:

Are you going to talk sensitive stuffs over Whatsapp? Even phone lines can be tapped. Who cares really???

Amran Nagal says:

Daniel pull some strings we all know you'll some how get news on whatsapp for Windows phone

Sure but the point is its more secure

the925guy says:

Hmm, I use the same telegram account for my lap,my tab and my phone. Cant say the same for WA.

booog89 says:

It's Switching Time!

I wont mind dumping WhatsApp for something else .... But how would I convince my Droid loving friends to switch.... Literally my friends laugh at me for sticking to Windows

DarrenSproat says:

I have convinced friends to switch to Windows Phone... and I laugh at those who haven't.

My point here is switching from WhatsApp and not Android...i actually have made a friend dump android for windows he was skeptic at first but he just loves windows now

Marco Gomes1 says:

I tried to convince two friends into dumping their droids and come to WP, and then they saw who much of a crap whatsapp facebook instagram (nevermind the nonexistent top games) were on WP and put me in a fools asylum.

chmun77 says:

I bet those are having the laugh now as we WP users missing a very popular app on the market.... I wouldn't laugh @ the other platform users if I were you when our own platform apps are like crap.

chmun77 says:

Is NEVER about new or old. Is about how many of your friends are using whichever more popular messaging app out there. And not everyone is ready to switch app. My friends tried Line, but they are back to Whatsapp eventually as Whatsapp is still the bigger user base. I would say is time to SWITCH PLATFORM rather.

kurotsuki says:

Is it available on Blackberry? Is it available for Asha? Is it even available for S60 based phones? WhatsApp does. And lot's of my contacts still use these kind of phones. Tell them to switch? That's like tell them to buy a new phone, which already done long time ago IF they can afford it. Sadly, they can't. :(

diftor says:

The sad truth is, as much as I'm with you, is that more people give up on WP, than WP users give up on whatsapp. Pretty sure it's safe to say, MSFT is more concerned with whatsapp working on WP, than whatsapp is concerned with working on WP

chmun77 says:

Indeed. Furthermore, even if other platforms get Telegrams, those versions of Telegrams will be much well polished than WP versions for sure. Just look at the current Whatsapp and Facebook apps on Windows Phone, designs are so bad. Whatsapp on Android uses different color bubble colors for different receipents, while Whatsapp on WP uses same colors for all people in a group chat. Even Facebook messager is so slow as compared to on Android. Not to mention that apps on Android are receiving updates much more frequent than WP versions, while our Instagram is still in BETA and Flipboard is still nowhere to be found....

Sometimes, I really had enough with Windows Phone.

Marco Gomes1 says:

Exactly! from those 500 millions whatsapp users (give or take some) how many are using a WP?! Zuckerberg isn`t losing any sleep over that, that´s for sure.

chmun77 says:

How to give it up when most of my friends who are on Android / iOS are still having strong support from Whatsapp, while only Windows Phone users are suffering? I think is time to give up Windows Phone rather if Whatsapp is not coming back for good.... Same goes for the crappy Facebook app.

karltech83 says:

Totally true and I came from Android, imagine how I feel...

lubbalots says:

Give up WP because of an app or two? Really? There's so many messaging apps and ways to message, its nothing to die for.

Ronnet says:

Except that whatsapp is the one everyone uses. Without whatsapp I dont have access to my friends group conversation, sport club chat, etc. Without whatsapp, WP is gone for (in a matter of years).

Revi Bennett says:

Everyone uses google apps, the sports bar, strip club, doctors etc, wp is a goner, ( in years).

Posted via the WPC App for Android!

lubbalots says:

WP is doomed then. I guess I'll have to consider the Apple iPhone in the near future.

Ronnet says:

On a serious note, if Whatsapp doesnt return then I would seriously consider Apple. I prefer WP but it would no longer be a viable option for me.

Ronnet says:

The key different between those apps and Whatsapp is that Whatsapp is a social platform. The apps you describe are for personal use. You can decide on your own to use alternatives. Besides there are unofficial versions of those apps on WP. Unlike Whatsapp. There are no alternative versions and you cant decide on your own to stop using it if your sport club, friends, project group, etc continues to use it.

Sagar Limaye says:

Why can't you understand that people on other platforms mostly use WhatsApp and very few of them adopt these new messaging apps?

Arka1412 says:

No need to explain these ignorant fan boys..We also love WP but without apps a smartphone is nothing..Facebook,whatsapp,skype,instagram all sucks on WP. Even on asha they are better.So what's the use of using a WP? Even many popular games are also not available,but still they will give an excuse its only 3 years...

dalydose says:

Then leave. Boom...problem solved.

A lot of people I know already have.

spinzeroWL says:

Don't play devil's advocate with people who actually clearly enjoy the platform...

You'll just wind up the only one here.

Windows Phone NEEDS Whatsapp - simple. Without it, this platform dies.

chmun77 says:

This is the typical reply of a fan boy..... But not everyone can leave as easily as you claim. We are all on contracts. Getting a new phone / paltform will be costly. Said is easier than done dude.

chmun77 says:

Totally!!! I'm not a fan of any platform. I just wanna use the platform I'm comfortable with. But if WP cannot give me that level of comfort, sorry then. I will move to another one which offers the better options than WP.

Stravincy says:

Apps make or break the experience on smartphones for most people. So yeah..

chmun77 says:

WP is practically useless, at least to me, if it is not coming back or receiving anymore updates as compared to other platforms. Is not just about an app or two, is about how I can utilize a platform. If this is were to happen on Android / iOS, I bet those users will have similar reactions too. Other messaging? But none of my other friends use alternative apps because Whatsapp is working like a breeze on their platforms! I will rather give up on a platform in order to stay connected with friends. I'm not a shareholder of MS after all.

crise says:

Yea about time to give up. Fundamental apps will suck forever on windows phone, and even wp8.1 is a buggy mess.

tofferne says:

Now I think it's time for Microsoft to make Skype working the same way like Whatsapp, and this way quit all these problems.

Marco Gomes1 says:

Yeah...good luck with that...

 

rollindadice says:

are you using it much more than WhatsApp? i'm trying to get more ppl to transition to it myself

Have to admit this is driving me to give up on WP after 2.5 years, lost my phone this weekend so now whatsappless, all my friends use it, plus new people I meet often do, I cant persuade most of Europe to move ;)

conansaga says:

+620.
Time to try something new.

tkdmacgeek says:

Is telegram better?

lubbalots says:

Try it and find out. It's only an app.

spinzeroWL says:

You likely won't be able to find out because you'll have next to no people on the service to chat to. I have 1 contact - whereas Whatsapp has >100.

Sagar Limaye says:

Rudy Huyn should make a WhatsApp app

MrLunga says:

^^this^^ or as soon as BBM gets released in June (I think) they might have a chance of taking over WhatsApp I have always preferred BBM anyway.

OsamaAdam98 says:

WhatsApp doesn't allow 3rd party developers to develop their app.

it not back and no one knows when it coming back 

kevC4D says:

I still have never had one person ask me for my What App user name (of course, i don't have one). Not even sure why i would need the service.

That's because that's not how it works. It simply looks up your phone number. You don't need to add anyone or vice versa, it just happens. If you have a contact that is on WhatsApp suddenly, you'll see them in WhatsApp.

As to why, because you can do much more with this app than just messages. It's also more secure, if you're concerned with the whole NSA thing (you probably should, watch Frontline).

sarim_xyz says:

^ Exactly!! We want WhatsApp back!

kevC4D says:

Oh ok, cool. Thanks for the tip. I had no idea, thought it was just a thing the teens were doing.  

The first time i heard of it, this Russian lady was wanting me to make a website for her. She wanted to base it on the WhatsApp name because everybody was using it. I had no clue and in her heavy Russian accent she kept saying 'what app' and I just thought she was asking about an app. I'm like "what app?" she says "yes WhatsApp" I say, "what app are you talking about?". Needless to say it was very confusing for a few minutes. 

anyway, I'm not an Iranian arms dealer, so the NSA can spy on me all they want :), I just won't be happy about it. And it is concerning that we have no sense of privacy, but I'm skeptical that WhatsApp can actually stop them. 

Jack Larson1 says:

I've got nothing to hide...they will be reading mostly reading messages of "ok", "thanks", and "coming!" from me.

Games Goblin says:

WhatsApp does not require a username; it finds contacts based on their phone number. If a contact in your address book uses WhatsApp, they will appear in WhatsApp list. EDIT: Too slow in the draw, Daniel beat me to it lol :)

aafa says:

You need friends, for starters. Then those friends with WhatsApp.

Games Goblin says:

Well, here in India at least, everyone is in WhatsApp

karltech83 says:

And in most Latin American countries too.

SumairB says:

Yep. India has a love affair of sorts with WhatsApp. There isn't a single Indian who isn't on it.

b23h says:

what's that first part?   FRIENDS?   ah, now I see the reason why I don't give a sh*t about WhatsApp.   I'm first to old for that, and second don't even SMS now that my relationship with my girlfriend went "tits up".

got it....

How old are you? I'm 35 and have a social life so use it a lot to organise with groups of friends

Marco Gomes1 says:

I wonder why... You seem to be such a social easy going guy.

b23h says:

To some extent I'm joking, but it also has an aspect of truth.   I'm fifty three and have moved several times in the last few years.   On most things I am really easy going, but I've had enough philosophy classes to be able to note how people rationalize to themselves and so even though I am pretty left politically, I'm not a party line thinker and do no hesitate to call bullshit on the Democrats when I find that appropriate, and some people find that disturbing....   ah, such is life...

Once I get a job and find myself an appropriate girlfriend, I'll be good as gold.

Speaking of which I am really interested in what Goldfinger is going to be like.   Daniel is pretty impressed by what he's heard.  It sounds like that might be my next phone???

sikku says:

Nobody will ask your username for WhatsApp bro.. If they have your cell numbers, they will know if you are using WhatsApp or not..

For some reason WhatsApp is stuck syncing new contacts since day before on my l520....its totally useless now...

spinzeroWL says:

Haha - silly comment :). You don't need a username....that's the whole point ;). A simple, effective SMS replacement.

bozza72 says:

still cant add photos from the camara roll you have to add tem from inside the app,

It's a Beta. Take it easy on developers. They're working hard to make your Windows Phone better, not worse.

bitfarm says:

Like WhatsApp did? ;)

Well, I have been plenty patient for WhatsApp, often rooting for them and always covering their updates. But yeah, it gets harder as time goes on.

spinzeroWL says:

Same here. I've been actively recommending people to Whatsapp in expectation of the much vaunted update being released. It would seem they have just gone full circle on us and pulled the app entirely.
Given your position as a 1,000lb Gorilla in the world of Windows Phone journalism, do you have direct access to anyone high up in Microsoft? They must be able to give us some insight into what's up (or is that what'sapp?)...

If they just gave us any kind of confirmation that Whatsapp would return, it would douse these flames of dissent amongt the WP faithful. We all want the platform to succeed after all....but this Whatsapp situation is making that difficult.

SamiSaifDine says:

Cool! Looking forward to try it! Hopefully alot of my friends will be there toi!

SamiSaifDine says:

13 friends only .. Compared to 75 friends on whatsapp! I guess I'm good with whatsapp *ohgodwhy* *wpSometimesSucks*

OsamaAdam98 says:

My friend list is empty on Telegram, Be happy.

SteveCr48 says:

Mine three... Nada

Mine four... Out of 1500 contacts... :(

theblankat says:

I have more than 1000 contacts all around the world. Only two are on Telegram. Uninstalling.

ahmu86 says:

Haha...total contacts 650+... Friends on hike messenger 40+.... Friends on what's app 380+... Cant even think of quitting even though I want to...

MikeSo says:

Do you actually communicate with that many people?

They changed everything and forgot to modify the very first line which reads out "Telegram Messenger is an unofficial Telegram" :P

vansiv says:

The unofficial statement on review app give me some doubts...

Good to have Telegram pushing in Windows Phone Store, but Whatsapp is widely used over any cellphone, so Whatsapp and MSFT need to teamup to fix this mess, otherwise we will be out of radar soon in matter of popular apps with this behavior.

terrokkinit says:

They already have been working to restore service for WhatsApp on WP. ;) Don't you worry yourself now and breathe!

please if they are working on it when it is coming back to the store? i am addicted to whatsapp and i have been missing messages from my friends and families.

gacali says:

I wonder if telegram is going to use Files to access the files and send them

csp131 says:

I got everyone at work, hangouts and iMessage converts, to use Telegram and they love it.

It's a great app. The only impediment to adoption is the mere existence of WhatsApp. If it weren't for that, people would be much more excited about this software.

csp131 says:

I just hope they add voice messages soon so I don't have to run to my laptop to play them.  

If you tap "support" ... Telegram opens a new conversation online with "Telegram" haha nice !!!

wpgeek820 says:

I fucking hate WhatsApp. I hope they rot in hell along with their android and ios apps. This is coming from a sensible and a patient guy. I've had enough.

rurbam says:

I can't log in here but no problem on migram beta. Still better Whatsapp

gacali says:

Yeah migram is way better in features but ngram is faster , i was hoping it would be migram

Xpider_MX says:

migram have notifications problems in my lumia 920, ngram/telegram have no notif issues.

gacali says:

Oh man , well both work fine on my 620 , only one that had notification problems was chatz

aazing says:

Heh. I have the same problem while with Migram I can login easily. Still, even though I'm in, there are only 2 of my frieds using Telegram *grin*.

I already use Telegram apps since you published an article about. I was using Migram. In that time I tried to convince my friends to also try and only four of them tested. Only one day. Never came back "online"...

gacali says:

I got 2 friends only but we always use it

raiinman says:

Trying to convince friends and family to switch over from WhatsApp but no luck. I like Telegram way better since I can use I on PC as well.

Realy, there's a Telegram app on Windows?

sachin hegde says:

its an unofficial app but works great. u can send any kind file through it.

WilsonBlaze says:

I like telegram! No issue switching just get it to to speed

Paritosh Rai says:

What's the impact on battery life? WhatsApp is a battery hog.

BigData says:

Can you pin-protect the app on launch like Mint or CloudSix?

rajthampi says:

Ngram rebranded as "Telegram Beta"? Well, that means it WILL never get registered from #Kuwait. Just downloaded and tried to, when Migram BETA registration was instantaneous and more features ladded!

 

Nokia5110 says:

No one in my contact list happens to use telegram. WA and viber still rule.

Luminatic says:

Can't get over the my phone number screen , doesn't accept my number. Damn.

neo158 says:

This is a stupid question but you did change the country, didn't you?

astell says:

What are the benefits of this/whatsapp over regular SMS other than the encryption?

In theory, you can send/do more, like voice messages, media, group chats, etc.

MikeSo says:

I'm more curious what the benefit over FB Messenger is. Wouldn't that be a more universally used system? I've never used WhatsApp so I don't know.

ahmu86 says:

I think on every what's app article there is this one guy who cant understand the logic of what's app... Then 4-5 people comment on the advantages... Is it that difficult to understand? what's app is so feature rich that across the globe, telecom companies lost approx $14 billion in sms revenue last year according to a report.

MikeSo says:

Right. But you can do that with FB Messenger as well, and I'd imagine most WhatsApp users have FB. Or do they not?

Facebook messenger requires you to be facebook friends. WhatsApp only needs there number. There some people I chat with that I don't want to be facebook friends with

Luminatic says:

Well, I don't know a single person that uses FB chat, and all people I know use Whatsapp. So no, FB chat isn't globally used at all.

Cupidokidz says:

I cant login with this app

SA3DX says:

So, they still didn't update the app description?! I mean in whatever language it is written in (Spanish I think) it's saying non ufficiale (not official) WTH.... Devs got to update the smallest of things.. (at least write the description in English...)

raiinman says:

Migram way better don't know how ngram won this contest.

Is this only I, but when I go to store the description of the app is written in Italian I guess.

hprvez says:

Nice one, in the italian store it is in english

Works on PC, Mac, Linux, too!
No fees! No ads! NOT owned by SGroogle or Fakebook!

mrhoodiny says:

For some reason I'm not able to register my phone number with this telegram app

Omar 11 says:

Can't register any one found a solution

KMF79 says:

Make sure you selected the correct country you live in. I'm going to assume the United States of America. Then be sure to input your full phone number including the area code with no spaces.

Very sad, since Migram is simply better.

60 mb such a big app!!!

Is WhatsApp not avaible further???

Any news about when bbm is coming

Its time to shift to android if WhatsApp is not been added to the store.

crise says:

Sad but true.

hprvez says:

Best idea ever, have fun with your lags

When the WhatsApp will return to store???

downloaded now hopefully the rest of my family will at least try it

reaction was worse than when i suggested we all try WhatsApp

DBZo07 says:

WhatsApp fantastic are from India. We are totally dependent on it. We have to keep an alternative. Telegram is best alternative.

ahmu86 says:

Try hike... You will forget WA

DBZo07 says:

Yes , I use. In Hike, notification for msg and loading of msgs are separate. First we receive notification than after we open hike we get msgs loaded. If on later part if we don't have internet we won't get msg till we connect to internet and open hike again. Don't know y they have such two step system.

ZvjerOPC says:

Let's wait some more, for BBM. I have high hopes for that messaging platform!

Marco Gomes1 says:
