    The app is excellent. But I have one problem. I get notifications from a specific channel then I open it and it's not there! The owner didn't delete it (I asked them) but it just won't show. If I leave the channel and join again tho it does show. But I don't wanna do this every time I get a notification. Please help me.

    The genuine telegram app deletes text messages from both sides but the third party apps keeps those messages and that is not good because it invades the peoples privacy status and sometimes they have the whole conversation sent to others even if it was confidential, for example if you saved a wrong number and then wrote a text or sent a photo then realized that its the wrong account and deleted it but yet if that person is using the “ third party apps” then he will still have those texts, photos, and user information and for me that is a major flaw in your agreement to them. I wish you can fix that problem or get rid of those apps and save other peoples sanity. Overall I love the Genuine app its so slick easy and so much comfortable to use I have been using it for the past 3 & 1/2 years and it never let me down. Keep up the good work and please check your agreements with the third party apps. Thanks in advance

  • Bug Sep 27, 2019

    By Amirali_KP
    Hi telegram developers, I noticed a problem after your last update, it's about when i download a song and try to listening to it after 2 or 3 times in repeat mode music stops playing ,but in lock screen i have it ,and shows that music is playing but nothing played and music player is terminated , then i have to reopen the telegram and play it again and again by the way when you are in the app everything works properly, this problem shows itself when you’re going to lockscreen or open another app when telegram is in background, telegram last 2 updates are more reliable than this version and it’s really annoying specially behind the wheel or when i put on my handsfree, i hope developers fix this bug to make it the best social app like the past . (iPhone 7plus) Best regards

    Honestly the only good things I love about this app is that there isn't a file limit for videos. And that's where the good ends because I can't play any of the videos. "can't play video, open in external player?" Simple solution, play with external player. Oh wait, there is none.

  • Please don’t alert me on who has joined Telegram Jan 2, 2020

    By Specialist 101
    I have had Telegram for a few years. I installed it because some contact mentioned that they use is for communication just like many other of global contacts who use various different Apps for communication and I download them to make it easy for my contact to reach me. I have about 11 such apps and Telegram is the only App that will intermittently big me with notifications that someone in my contact list has joined Telegram and other silly alerts that have noting to go with me receiving a message from a contact. I just received 11 notifications back to back that 11 of my contacts joined Telegram. First of all it’s not a coincidence that 11 different people who have nothing in common other than being in my contact list join Telegram at the very same second. So obviously, this is a cheap way of Telegram trying to engage with me. I seriously don’t give a crap who is in or not. If they are and they need to reach me then and only then I’d like to be alerted. Kindly fix your unnecessary alerts or give me the option of what alerts I’d like to get and I’ll change my ratings for you.

    File management in Telegram is the worst. Downloaded files are saved in Telegram Document folder with large numeric filename. They don't show in MX Player. When files are saved to gallery they are copied to Download folder with proper file name; still earlier file is present there. All these duplicate files take up double storage. Developers must go through it. Rest functions are good.

  • New bugs in version 5 Dec 20, 2018

    By fordguy1997
    Telegram was almost bug free, but version 5 introduced a host of new bugs that were previously fixed. 1) "Last seen" time is no longer accurate. It takes a few minutes to update. Often it tells me that I was last seen 30 minutes ago, when I'm online! 2) the search feature is broken: it has the glitch that only shows 100 results maximum. Previously it used to tell me how many messages each person sent to the chat, which was in the tens of thousands. Now each person has allegedly only sent 100 messages. 3) The same old message notification keeps being pushed to my Notification Center after I've cleared it from there multiple times. This happens for days at a time for the same notification. EDIT 12/19: Developer mentioned the update, well issue 1 was not fixed with the recent update that was pushed out. However, I can report that issue 2 has been fixed. Still noticing issue 3, and will email about it. Thanks

I wrote a mail to telegram but got no response. I reported it on their troubleshooting portal but no reply. This is really upsetting.

  • Latest version introduces a really annoying bug Feb 13, 2020

    By ZoomZoomNH
    The Feb. 3 update still includes the really annoying bug. To test the new update, I typed "This is a test of Telegram's new updated app." Here is what Telegram got: "Thisi atTelegram's nbew pda app." Clearly, this is still completely unusable. If anything, the number of dropped characters is worse than it was originally. Original review: Updating to the latest version introduced a really bad bug that causes keyboard input to get corrupted. When I type on my Bluetooth keyboard now, Telegram acts like I also typed random backspaces every few characters, completely messing up the words I type, and inducing auto-correct to change many of the messed-up words to something completely different. Please fix this right away! I've installed every update since the bug was introduced, and none of them have addressed the problem! I just updated again today (Jan. 9), and the problem is as bad as ever. I have to type very slowly and constantly correct Telegram's mistakes, making it nearly unusable.

    Best all around app for social endeavours. Built in cloud where you can save all kind of documents....images... Texts... Videos... Whatever you want (uncompressed!) Works flawlessly, it's fast, it looks good, it has no bugs, and honestly... I can't think of anything that I would change when it comes to it. 10/10, well played to the developers.

  • What WhatsApp wishes it was Jun 29, 2020

    By Jac565
    Pretty much everything WhatsApp has and more. Not to mention, actually good security—unlike WhatsApp. End to end encryption where the keys are kept on your device. If you do some research, Telegram’s security has been publicly audited by real world events. I work in cyber sec and use Telegram as my default messenger for everything. Whether it’s sending large files (seriously, I’ve sent files over a gigabyte) to joining a variety of channels/groups. I honestly believe Telegram could be the next IRC chat (I get all my security and tech news and updates from telegram channels faster than news sites or rss). I’ve been slowly converting my friends and family to it. Simply the best and the features just keep coming. Thank you Telegram developers! You’ve truly revolutionized decentralized messaging.

    telegram it's the best messaging app available but lately it has some annoying bugs. A friend of mine noticed that sometimes the notifications don't work than I noticed the issue too which has become a real annoying problem because you can't never now when someone got the message or didn't, than there is another annoying issue: when my contact it's online telegram writes offline and he sign it online just when he's typing. I wrote to the volunteers but had no response.

  • Suggestion for improvement Aug 11, 2020

    By r4r2r4
    When I scroll the files/links shared with someone, and this person sends me a message, I do not receive the notification, and the message is considered as read like being within the chat. (which I actually am, but in another tab) I checked that on Windows, Linux and different Apple devices. It is not the issue on tablets, as the display is separated, neither on desktops, if user widens the window so that the chat and files/links are present concurrently. However on cellphone devices only chat or files/links tab can be displayed at a time. I guess it will be better to notify the user whenever they do not actually see the message with a topside pop-up and show the label “unread messages” within the chat when user is back from files/links tab.

    It is a great app but I think it really needs an update.like I mean the video messaging.the small circle it presents isn't just it at all.video messages and calls are not even convienent enough and also i find it very difficult to send media's.could it be that telegram doesn't have the capacity to send large media's? ..please can the app developers do something about all these?i think it will be a better messaging app if all these are done.

    You can send messages to your self. I use Telegram for taking notes on my phone, then copy them into a text file on my desktop computer. It's a solid messaging app. Not THE best one, but one of them for sure. Dark theme included. However, recent research has revealed that Telegram leaks information about phone numbers on your contacts list. Use Signal instead.

  • Video calling Nov 19, 2019

    By hatxus
    In this day and age video calling is a must with every app such as Telegram, and lack of it unnecessarily opens the door for the competition. Despite my desire to solely use Telegram to connect with friends & family all over the world, I’m having to use other apps, because of the lack of this feature in this app, and I’m sure this is the case for most of its other users. I’d give this app 4 stars if it had the video calling feature, and 5 if it wasn’t for some other malfunctions I come across every now and then, such as, all of a sudden losing all my communications with a contact from the beginning till a random date, or altogether till the present! This has happened to me several times with different contacts, so I highly recommend backing your communications up if they’re important to you. I really hope, and strongly suggest that the developers add the video calling feature ASAP. Thank you for all your efforts for providing the public with a great communication tool! 🙏🌹

  • Telegram Review Jun 1, 2019

    By Faris Nabeel
    I enjoy using the app much more than any other social media messaging platform. The ability to create group chats, call people, and customizable features in addition to a UI that is seamless with other devices, and doesn't stutter is a treat. But, in some areas telegram falls short due to lack of video messaging, the traffic seems to be lower than other platforms, and searching for groups isn't as easy as some may like it to be. Regardless, a video chat feature similar to instagrams live mode would be perfect for the group chats. If possible maybe even allowing features thats on discord to be on the app, better bots would be a plus that telegram makes themselves rather than relying on other people bots. Most bots seem to not work as well as the competition. Overall its a great 1 v 1 app, but apps such as WhatsApp or instagrams video-calling is superior, and discords bots and chat customization is superior. Telegram is the perfect middle ground that could do better.

  • Not fully accessible using voice Over Mar 10, 2020

    By short she wolf
    I am visually impaired, and I use Voice Over to navigate through the various features on my IPhone 8. I am using the most current version of IOS 13. I can only use Voice Over when listening to a single contact (I can activate the play button). But when I try to activate the play button when chatting within a group, Voice Over does not work. Instead, I have to turn Voice Over off and activate play like a user who is sighted. I fortunately have enough vision to do this, but a blind or visually impaired person with less or no vision would not be able to perform the work around I have found. I have tried to report this several times, and I have received no feedback at all. I find that to be very discouraging. I know that some blind useds are experiencing the same problem while others are not, so it is not an across the board problem. However, the issue still needs to be invchstigated.

  • “Raise to listen” is horrible, and circle videos force auto play Feb 22, 2020

    By ColinHuth
    Telegram does a lot of things right, but its total lack of customization of usability settings isn’t one of them. “Raise to listen“ is forced on. Any random time something comes close to your phone, it decides you’ve raised it to your head and starts a voice recording. There’s a secret debug menu (not mentioned anywhere) accessed by tapping “settings” 10 times, but even turning it off there doesn’t fix it. This breaks when more since circle videos autoplay — a conversation with them means you’ll constantly be going back to watch someone’s that you missed, and then *your* video after will play. Possibly at double their volume. And you’ll have to stop it manually, every single time. But what’s worse is that if any circle video is paused, and there’s play/pause on the top bar, then raise to listen will override and play *no matter what*. Even if you have it forced off in the secret debug menu. For every hour of circle video conversation, this means manually stopping autoplay and having to hit the little X literally hundreds of times just to make your own recordings not play loudly at you, and your phone’s sensor not delete what you were recording because a cat got too close to your phone and it decided it was your ear. All because Telegram really, *really* doesn’t like giving you options as to how you use the app.

  • Media autosave is broken since iOS 12 release and calls dropping every few min Oct 24, 2018

    By MehoCode
    Hey dev team, the auto save feature for all media (images specifically) isn’t working since I updated to publicly available ios 12. It worked perfectly on all betas of iOS 12 and stable versions of previous iOS but now it became very frustrating as I expected to see all images received to be in photo gallery but aren’t being saved for some reason. I tried reinstalling both Telegram and iOS, tested telegram on 3 different iPhones but nothing seem to be helpful in this case. Media auto save is enabled in settings and app has access to photos so no permission issues as far as I understand. I also sent a message to app support few weeks ago and never head back from them so this is the last step before I start looking for alternatives. Another big issue is calls quality/reliability. Every time I call someone after few min I hear beeps that indicate lost/poor network, then I can hear other party again but they can’t hear me or call just drops after 15-20 seconds. The longer the call (multiple calls) is the more often it breaks and I have to call that person again. I’m on latest iOS 12.0.1 and iPhone XS Max 256. Hoping to see these two fixed in the next update. Once this and dropping calls is fixed Telegram will be again my favorite messenger. Until then - 2 star review.

    This app used to be so good for downloading movies, series and much more. But lately downloading has become impossible as the downloaded file gets deleted right after the download completes. It used to show the downloaded file, but now after the download completes we don't see it instead app shows the download sign again. I lost great amount of data like this. Keep media forever option is on and i have not cleared my cache. So, issue is not that. Fix this issue and I will give 5 star rating.
