It has over 35 million users and this number is increasing by the day and with superfast messenging, it is really giving Whatsapp a hell of a competition. Telegram app achieves this speed by decentralizing its data centers throughout the world, thus routing you through the nearest server. In the next few years, I can't predict what will happen between Whatsapp and Telegram messenger.
Here are Some Comparative features of the Telegram Messenger App
1. It's Free forever, compared to the Whatsapp Messenger that give a year trial.
2. It allows unlimited chat upload while Whatsapp Messenger allowed 16MB chat upload limit.
3. You messages can be accessed with multiple device on Telegram Messenger.
4. No ads, No subscription fee and free as I stated above.
5. It's available for all platform, which also includes your old Java phones.
6. You also have the chance to select themes as well as backgrounds when chatting.
7. You can continue your chat on PC with all conversations accessible even when your mobile is not connected to the internet.
8. You can send a self destruct timer message
9. More people can join your group (200 against 50 in Whatsapp)
With an added end-to-end encryption of your messages which leaves no trace on the servers themselves, you can be rest assured that every footprint of your private chats is automatically erased at the end of each chatting session.
And you get the chance to use your own username as well as display picture.
It works with even the weakest mobile connection, it is very fast, even with your 2G network. And your messages are compressed to the best minimum byte possible.
