Reintroducing Telegram: privately funded private chat with open source apps

397

Telegram is a private chat system with end-to-end encryption support and cross-platform functionality. It’s privately funded by a guy named Pavel Durov, whose only goal seems to be “fast and secure messaging that is also 100% free.”

Here in February of 2020, Telegram released an update to their mobile private message system with upgrades for profiles, new ways to “thumb” through user media, and quick access to shared media. This latest update also brings a newly redesigned People Nearby section with “fresh ways to forge new friendships.” This latest update is live for Android and iOS users now.
