Telegram has grown over the past six months. I can see people migrating to Telegram but still a vast majority of my friends still do not use it. Here i list down 6 reasons why i like Telegram more than Whatsapp.
- Telegram has Encrypted messaging. Even if your messages are intercepted. Its going to be really tough to get through that Encryption. Good when you are transmitting some sensitive info.
- Self destructive messages in Telegram could be really useful. Your messages will self destruct post being read and after the set time. Options vary from 1 second to 1 day.
- Whatsapp belongs to Facebook and you know Facebook. I will stop it at that.
- Kick ass desktop client. If you want to use your pc to talk to your whatsapp contacts, your phone and your pc, both, need to be connected to the internet. and also you will be using a web browser. But you get a really good desktop app for Telegram that is really smooth and hey your phone does not need to be connected to the internet.
- File transfer. When you are on your desktop. You can drag and drop files into the desktop client and it would just go to the other person. No hassle. It just WORKS!
- Group Messaging & Bots. With the ability to use bots for Groups. Group management becomes easier. Avid programmers could explore this and go places.
