Telegram Features and How to meet new people in your area

Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging and voice over IP service. Telegram client apps are available for Android, IOS, Windows phone, Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Just like any other social network, Telegram is very popular due to its outstanding features it offers its users. To add to, telegram offers encrypted messages and can self destruct, something that is not available in WhatsApp.

Let’s look at some of the most outstanding features of Telegram before we delve in deep to today’s lesson.

Some Telegram Features you should know about

Secret Chats

Though all telegram chats are encrypted, default chats are still stored on telegram’s servers. For the full privacy, you can use the secrete chat option which uses client-to-client end encryption.

Save Messages

The save messages feature let’s you access your files on any device you log in to telegram. Telegram uses the save messages to store your files in cloud storage assigned personally to you.

Proxy Server

When you find yourself in a region where telegram is blocked, the proxy server feature is available for you. Though many people prefer using VPNs at the same time you can use telegram’s proxy server.

Telegram Bots

Bots adds useful functions into your chats. Bots can be used in telegram channels, groups and even personal chats. I have seen numerous channels that operate with bots without the admin’s presents. Bots are fun to work with. You can create your own personal bot and assign functions to it. It’s relevant to mention that you can enable comments in your Telegram channel by the bots. Having enough comments increases the channel’s visibility. You can also find the best place to buy Telegram comments.

Multiple Profile Pictures

Telegram allows you to upload multiple profile photos. While one will be used for what your contacts will see, they will have the option to scroll for more of your uploaded picture.

More Than One Phone Number

In the telegram, you can change your number and still move your groups, chats, and channels to your new number.
