WhatsApp might be a widely used and well known messaging app, but its recent acquisition by Facebook has raised some privacy concerns as well as skepticism about Facebook’s real intentions for that app. Luckily for us, there are many good alternatives and Telegram is one of them.
Telegram’s latest official version is 1.4.4 and a 9.5MB download on the Play Store (there is an iOS version too). It will take nearly 13.75MB once it has been installed and will work on devices with Android 2.2 and up.
The app has a very low impact on the battery and does not show ads of any kind; its creators say the service will be free forever, with no plans for future annual fees or in-app purchases.
If you never installed a messaging app like this one or if you want to change the one you are currently using, Telegram is an interesting alternative due to the privacy and security options it includes and its open source nature.
