The mere fact my number is hidden from groups and groups AUTO MUTE. Groups can also be put PROPERLY to silent not like WhatsApp in your face half baked mute. What WhatsApp is to SMS is what Telegram is to WhatsApp. Heck travelling through Africa, I couldn't even send SMS's yet my Telegrams when through. WhatsApp good luck with EDGE...
    Actually the number as of March 2018 was double that. Which goes back to my original point that the choice of an IM isn't an individual decision - and what sets Telegram apart is their resolve to support most platforms natively.

    Within the last 30 days, Telegram was used by 200 million people. This is an insane number by any standards. If Telegram were a country, it would have been the sixth largest country in the world.

      We experimented with Viber for 6 months. It just wasn't up to scratch compared to Telegram. Telegram uses way less battery, appeared significantly more redundant with uploads of images, the API via BOTS, Cloud backed, 2GB file limits, video streaming, large groups, secret chats, image search within app etc. all made it an easy decision for my staff to use. When we plan cross country flights with my fellow pilots, we ALL use Telegram and it hasn't let us down. Some tried Viber and WhatsApp but by day 3 of the marathon saw those apps just don't compete. If you want compromised use WhatsApp.

      As for numbers, I recall seeing over 400 mil users but couldn't find the link hence me posting 200.

        Yup, telegram is by far the best messaging platform at the current time - just watch how many times whatsapp copies it's features. As far as Viber goes, the fact that it has ads is a non-starter for me - not to mention how it compares to Telegram (as you mentioned).

        On the numbers the last update I've seen is 200. They should be about ready to post an update.
