What is Telegram?

Telegram is a free messenger for fast messaging and making calls. There are versions for smartphones (iOS or Android) and PCs (Windows or Mac) running all major operating systems - you can download any of them and synchronize them between devices.


  • communicate with friends in regular, group, or secret chats;
  • make calls;
  • exchange files of any type and large size;
  • use useful bots (for example, for book search or translation);
  • create channels and subscribe to existing ones.


  • After installation, click on the "three-line icon" to go to the main menu. Here you can change the avatar, nickname, view a list of users who already have Telegram installed, add new contacts, and more.
  • Set the necessary security settings by going to the "Settings" -> "Privacy" menu section.
  • To write a message, click on the round "pencil icon" in the lower right corner or immediately select the desired user from the contact list.
  • You can also find channels that match your interests by using the search field at the top and subscribe to them.


  • protection of calls and messages with encryption;
  • presence of channels and bots;
  • instant synchronization on all devices;
  • secret chats with the ability to configure auto-deletion of messages;
  • ability to attach any type of large files to messages;
  • presence of many fun free stickers for messaging;
  • messages and files are stored in the cloud.


  • Lack of sorting in the general list. The general list of chats and channels does not have a sorting function. This can be a problem with a large number of subscriptions and contacts. However, recently Telegram has the ability to create folders and distribute subscriptions among them, which significantly facilitates finding the desired chat.
