Telegram is coming to Windows Phone


Oh please don't get me wrong after reading the title as we are not talking about the traditional telegram, we are talking about about the Telegram app that is giving all other cross platforms messaging apps run for their money and now good news is that it is coming for windows phone in January after hitting a successes tip on Android & iOS. So how it is different from others & what benefits it will offer to users that can upset the likes of Whatsapp, Wechat & Line, Well read on to find out.

Telegram app announced through twitter that their app will be out for Windows Phone in January 2014 though app is already available for Android & iOS. Using Telegram you can send photos & videos to people who are in your contact list & yes do keeping in mind the basic requirement that they should also be using the same app to make that sharing possible.

So even whatsapp, Wechat & Line can do that so what does make it different from them, Well the developers of Telegram claim that it is way more faster & secure then compared to it's peer apps and i also personally feel that is an astonishing feature only if it can save the folks using it from NSA & other snooping agencies. To support their claim they also stated that Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram is cloud-based, decentralized and heavily encrypted. To get technical, they support two layers of secure encryption based on 256-bit symmetric AES encryption, RSA 2048 encryption and Diffie–Hellman secure key exchange.

Well till now it must be easy going for the app tasters as the big news is still to be fleshed & the big news that will prove to be the icing on the cake is that Telegram is a forever free app with no subscription fee or advertisement as claimed by founders. Telegram is a not for profit project though if they run out of the money then they will raise funds through donations or try to embed some paid features.

To me this app seems promising but the cross platform messaging app scene is already too crowded so how does it fare against them or does even stand a chance to make a cut in the market can only be stated after it will be released on all the major platforms and for that one thing that can come to it's rescue is it's name the "Telegram" that is pretty synonymous with messaging. So let's wait & watch how does it fare in this too crowded app market.
