The secure instant messaging app is now ready for download on PC

Telegram is an instant messaging service that you can use to send texts to friends and family for free. Now available for download to PC, you can guarantee that no matter where you are and no matter what device you're using, you'll never miss an important conversation.
Similar to WhatsApp, Viber and Hike, it uses your mobile number and lets you connect to people in your contacts list who have the app installed. You can send them text and voice messages, as well as attach things like photos, videos, and links. Telegram for Android looks and functions like WhatsApp. We can immediately recognize that the interface is somewhat similar, as is how we interact with it. For example the double-green tick that tells you if your message has been seen or not.
The difference between Telegram and other IM apps is that users don't have to pay to use the messenger. Moreover, Telegram uses decentralized server infrastructure which is proving faster than other means of communication. What's more is it's reliability. For instance you can send messages and expect them to be delivered even over the weakest connections. It also safeguards your information and can connect you to up to 100 people in the one chat. It also has cloud-space where you can back-up your data free, and access it wherever Telegram is installed.
My favourite thing about this app is that it's going to be free forever, unlike other apps like WhatsApp that have recently introduced fees. You should download Telegram if you're looking for an excellent text-messaging service.
