Telegram is yet another app which is being extensively worldwide as an alternate to WhatsApp.  The feature-rich app may not be as simple to use as WhatsApp but is useful in more ways than one. According to the downloads as per the report, it stands at number 3 in the world.

Signal Vs Telegram

The messaging platform has taken a sucker punch due to the bizarre privacy policy. We all know that one man’s loss is another man’s gain. Hence, Signal and Telegram are being downloaded more and more in these days. Signal trumps Telegram as far as simplicity is concerned whereas the latter gives a better feature-rich experience.

This does not mean that Signal lacks features as it offers a built-in image editing tool that enables its users to crop and flips their photos, fast operability and a cool dark mode which gives it a panache and urbane feel. With a rating of 4.5 stars, it has been totally installed in 50,000,000+ times.

Signal was launched recently, whereas Telegram has been into existence since quite some time now and hence its very natural for it to have been downloaded more number of times. It allows you to make group chats with up to 200,000 members, and also enables one to find groups and communities related to your interests. What is interesting to see is that which app will rule the instant messaging world!
