"Create private and group chats, make calls, and suscribe to channels"
Dec 2, 2019 by Daria

I really like to communicate with people. And I use many different applications for this. But, choosing a computer program, I decided that I would install Telegram because I really like the set of their stickers and subscriptions to interesting channels.

Main features

Telegram is a desktop version of the well-known Telegram mobile messenger for Mac OS X, with which users can exchange not only instant messages, but also various media files - photos, music, videos, etc. User accounts are attached to the phone number by sending an authorization SMS messages. The key advantage of the messenger that distinguishes it from analogues is the full confidentiality of user data. In addition to using standard encryption technologies, mechanisms are used here to automatically clear all traces of correspondence on both the recipient and the sender.

Chat groups

The messenger has the ability to create secret chats with increased security, self-destruction of messages, direct message delivery and an improved message encryption algorithm, which will provide even greater security for your private correspondence.

Use bots

Telegram uses one common type of bots, which differ from ordinary users only by the presence of the prefix “bot” in the name. Written for the Telegram platform, they are designed to perform a variety of functions: from receiving news to finding informationThe bots themselves are divided into several areas: chat bots, informative bots, game bots. The main task of the bot is to automatically respond after a user entered a command. At the same time, working directly through the Telegram interface, the program imitates the actions of a live user, due to which the use of such a bot is much more convenient and understandable.

Follow interesting channels

Channels are similar to publics on social networks, and use them as a personal blog, as a news feed, to promote business, to announce blog articles, and also creating a channel in Telegram is a great way to earn money.

In conclusion

Well, I love Telegram. It's funny, informative and eay way to connect to my friends. But I face the situation when a verification code wasn't sent and I needed to repeat my phone number. But it's not such a problem. A significant advantage is support not only for mobile devices, but also for other platforms (Windows/Mac/Linux). All your messages (except secret chats) will be automatically synchronized between devices.
