How is Telegram better than Whatsapp
1. Cloud storage
Cloud storage is an outstanding point of Telegram. Each user will have a separate cloud saving all his/her text messages, images media files and document. Thanks to cloud storage, losing data never occurs even if you log out or log in any number of times from any number of equipment concurrently and you also don’t need to mind about backup and restore. It allows you to see the active session and view which devices are you logged in now and download any file any time anywhere.
2. Media compression
This means that you can compress the image and video to send or you also can send the uncompressed type.
3. Group member number capacity
Telegram allows a normal group to contain 200 members. However, after reaching this figure, the Group will be elevated to a Supergroup that has some better points than a normal Group with 5000 members.
4. Username feature
Your communication is unlimited, even when you don’t know the contact number of other, you still can get in touch with anyone on Telegram thanks to username feature. Therefore, the privacy of user’s contact number is absolutely protected.
A channel is a place where the member connections are linked and its capacity is unlimited. The person creating channel will select who can post and other members can view the posts.
6. Multi-platform support
Telegram is available for many operating systems such as Android, ios, windows phone, windows pc, Mac os, Linux os and even through any browser.
7. Secret chat
The salient feature of secret chat is using end to end encryption that you can set self- destruct timer. When the time is up, your messages will be immediately canceled so being hacked is impossible.
Bot is a part of the program relied on AI and machine learning at low level. Tasks that it can carry out are so diversified. For instance, images can be fetched from the name by an image bot.
Bots have numerous types such as image bot, sticker bot, and gift bot.
9. Voice calls
The Voice calls are features updated recently, which brings convenience to users.
10. Sends any kind of file
If using WhatsApp just allows you to send limited type files, you can send comfortably any video, images and document type files with Telegram.
11. Multiple sessions
Telegram allows users to login on several devices simultaneously and receive messages on every device.
Another feature is that your sessions will be saved on any device even browser.
Pros of Whatsapp
1. Voice & video calls
Both voice and video calls are supported by WhatsApp. With low data, you can connect with someone by calling or calling video. This a good point of WhatsApp.
2. Delivery and read notification
Another feature is that you will receive notification about the delivery and read the status of the person being sent promptly.
3. End to end encryption everywhere
While Telegram only uses end to end encryption for secret chat, it is used everywhere by WhatsApp. This is the outstanding point of WhatsApp.
In my view, I really like Telegram than WhatsApp because I find that Telegram is faster than WhatsApp and its features are updated frequently. Supposing my friend sends me a nice picture to me but I don’t want others to see it, I can just download it and watch but yet not having to save it in the gallery. Therefore, I think it is worth trying to use Telegram.
