In desperate need of Group Video Chat

Hey, I’ve been using Telegram for over 10+ years and I haven’t had any problems with this application whatsoever everything works great but, there is one issue that I have with this application and that is the inability to create a group video chat that is why I can only give telegram 3 stars. I honestly believe that is a crucial disadvantage to this application I say that because, I have family and friends that live all over the world whether it be in different states or different countries and we all have telegram on our phones. That being said we would like to I’ll be able to talk in a video group chat with each other which we are unable to because this application doesn’t provide that option. So therefore since telegram doesn’t provide a video group chat option we have to download another application to be able to do that Task. Which in my opinion is extremely ridiculous because you should be able to perform the test on this app as well. Instead of making people waste valuable space on their phones by download in other apps to perform the test where y’all can provide that ability on your app so we don’t have to download other apps to perform that and we could save space on our Devices.

Need Video calling feature, faster passcode lock & a bug fix

I am enjoying telegram as my main chatting app as it’s secure faster & fun to use! But unfortunately it has only voice calling feature which makes me to use another apps for that feature only! I cordially expect that developer will add that asap! It’s passcode locking feature in order to provide best security to its user, but apps lock doesn’t work immediately! Which should be must! The minimum time is 1 minutes! It should be locked within a fraction of second as some other apps do! As long as we have face unlocking feature so it will not bother us! Lastly, I have facing an unexpected issue sometimes! I’m not sure where I tap but when it happens telegram stop functioning & start glitching non stop glitching! It needs the apps to launch again! So please make the apps more lovely by adding video calling features and make the passcode lock more quicker & fix the bug! Thanks for reading with patience!

Deleted messages

The genuine telegram app deletes text messages from both sides but the third party apps keeps those messages and that is not good because it invades the peoples privacy status and sometimes they have the whole conversation sent to others even if it was confidential, for example if you saved a wrong number and then wrote a text or sent a photo then realized that its the wrong account and deleted it but yet if that person is using the “ third party apps” then he will still have those texts, photos, and user information and for me that is a major flaw in your agreement to them. I wish you can fix that problem or get rid of those apps and save other peoples sanity. Overall I love the Genuine app its so slick easy and so much comfortable to use I have been using it for the past 3 & 1/2 years and it never let me down. Keep up the good work and please check your agreements with the third party apps. Thanks in advance

iOS Home swipe gesture glitch

1. When I use swipe up gesture - I’m accidentally Join Chat(which I just opened to browse it, not join!). Join chats should be located somewhere else or there should be warning popup- Are you sure to join chat? 2. Glitch: Using latest iPadOS and iPad Pro. Also, another big problem- poor sound from my side, I can hear opponent in call perfectly), but me is like microphone is too far away(that’s opponent in call telling me about what he hear during call, quality is terrible). I’m using my iPad Pro 12.9 M1 near me in close 30cm distance and mics and not covered. In Zoom call everything is perfect with the same person, with the same conditions, so this is definitely telegram problem! Just tested: on MacBook Pro sound is clear, with the same person, but using iPhone/iPad - sound is crap, too low. 3).Also, now I tried iPhone 13 Pro and got the same issue! Using headphones improves quality a bit, but anyway it’s awful. Again, I can hear opponent perfectly. Also, my internet is 100mb/sec optical and stable. Another bug: Search in chats are crap. I’ve sent a lot of links too AliExpress and searching word “ali” doesn’t give’s anything!

Please I’m a big fan

Look I’m a big fan of this app I used like a few years ago and now it’s at a whole different state and it’s so much better then WhatsApp and now with their new update about privacy most the people I know don’t know about technology stuff and change logs but I do so I’ve gotten a handful of people to switch and a few friends and family and they’ve all said they love this app and it’s true it’s awesome but they won’t delete WhatsApp because it’s missing, stories or a status a way to let others know about you including myself I now have 2 messaging devices I use telegram as my main and WhatsApp I use it for school and status if you could add this it would mean a lot to me I’ve heard you just hit 500 mil🥳 and I feel good to have been a part of that I know it may take a while for you too implement this feature but it would be the death of WhatsApp for all the people I’ve invited

Almost perfect

My S.O. and I have been looking for the perfect secure video chatting platform for a while. We were pleasantly surprised that Telegram finally started implementing video chatting. It is very buggy at the moment, but Telegram is definitely on the right track and has everything that we are looking for. We use the group video call feature to share screens and audio, and it’s very easy to seamlessly switch devices without having to disrupt the call. The iOS app seems more buggy than desktop as it overheats and freezes up my phone during long calls. Other bugs include recursive screen-in-screens during screen sharing, hearing your own voice when sharing audio, and suddenly not hearing the other person. It also would be great to have these features in the individual voice chats as well. Overall, we’re very excited for these features and the quick updates.

Scammer’s Paradise

Positives: Telegram had some positive features. You can start a secret chat with someone. There’s freedom of speech in that app and you can say politically incorrect things without getting banned. You can post content which are deemed offensive. That’s why I like Telegram. I do miss the app, though. Unfortunately, I can’t go back, not after what happened to me. Negatives: I was catfished by a scammer. The problem with Telegram is that it doesn’t have a report feature. I reported the scammer via using Yahoo mail, Gmail, and even messaged notoscam. Sadly, Telegram wouldn’t do anything about it. I had to delete my account, and deleted the app itself because of how persistent and dangerous the scammer is. The scammer is using a photo of an actual doctor and is pretending to be him. I suspect it’s an African scammer, but I’ll never know. The only thing I had done was to block the scammer on Telegram, but that wasn’t enough.

So far so good 😎

I am on a mission to get as many people away from the tentacles of Zuckerboss as possible. Have managed to get a few dozens of people to switch from whatsflop to this better platform. The only complain I get is that this does not have status, which apparently social media junkies can’t live without 🤦🏻‍♂️ Another complain is that the app freezes or acts slow in low connection spots some thing those users of whatsflop supposedly didn’t deal with it. Hopefully these things will be addressed and improved/fixed. I know this is still evolving and growing so I am hopeful it would become the dominant messaging platform and I will contribute to that by getting people to jump ship. I only hope we don’t get sold out like all these other money hungry corps out there. Keep up the good work guys, I wish you great success in the years to come 👍🏼👍🏼

Please don’t alert me on who has joined Telegram

I have had Telegram for a few years. I installed it because some contact mentioned that they use is for communication just like many other of global contacts who use various different Apps for communication and I download them to make it easy for my contact to reach me. I have about 11 such apps and Telegram is the only App that will intermittently big me with notifications that someone in my contact list has joined Telegram and other silly alerts that have noting to go with me receiving a message from a contact. I just received 11 notifications back to back that 11 of my contacts joined Telegram. First of all it’s not a coincidence that 11 different people who have nothing in common other than being in my contact list join Telegram at the very same second. So obviously, this is a cheap way of Telegram trying to engage with me. I seriously don’t give a crap who is in or not. If they are and they need to reach me then and only then I’d like to be alerted. Kindly fix your unnecessary alerts or give me the option of what alerts I’d like to get and I’ll change my ratings for you.

4th Update App Review

The customizable colors, dark theme, sleek, fluid messaging app, private, and secure. Destructible messages are a plus. I like the spoiler option it’s pretty cool, along with many other features. Previously Telegram was lacking video calls, Group Video Calls, FaceID. I’ve noticed they added it on which is great! End to End encryption should be standard. Why go through the hassle of doing secret chats? The option should be the other way around “unsecret chats” Please add Pin Numbers. Some people dont like to share phone numbers. Having the option for Pin number to add users on Telegram is a Marvelous idea. More business features are needed like having the capability to pay and receive payments within the app. Having an online store. Add a “transparent theme” for themes and colors that be awesome! One thing needs FIXING. The app has been updated. Now it’s complicated and confusing to change the color themes. When applying the colors and theme it does not update it. Someone sent me a voice note. It took 12 hours to receive it. The voice note stayed at a downloading state the whole time. I have 5G service. Please update with new features suggested and fixes. Then we can agree it deserves a 5 Star rating. Im sticking to 4 stars until then.

Video calling

In this day and age video calling is a must with every app such as Telegram, and lack of it unnecessarily opens the door for the competition. Despite my desire to solely use Telegram to connect with friends & family all over the world, I’m having to use other apps, because of the lack of this feature in this app, and I’m sure this is the case for most of its other users. I’d give this app 4 stars if it had the video calling feature, and 5 if it wasn’t for some other malfunctions I come across every now and then, such as, all of a sudden losing all my communications with a contact from the beginning till a random date, or altogether till the present! This has happened to me several times with different contacts, so I highly recommend backing your communications up if they’re important to you. I really hope, and strongly suggest that the developers add the video calling feature ASAP. Thank you for all your efforts for providing the public with a great communication tool! 🙏🌹

Good app for communication, but no good for investments

***Disclaimer*** This is only describing the various situations where forex group chats exist on the service. Nothing against the actual service itself, only the Forex groups on the app ***Disclaimer*** So the app is wonderful in terms of communication, and a good competitor to Whatsapp (another wonderful messaging service). My only beef is the fact that I was the idiot (last October) to download the app due to being suckered by a rando online about a bitcoin forex. I was unaware of such financial lingo, assuming that I would get my return profit in 48 hours. Biggest mistake If people recommend you to various places that offer a return profit via forex, DO NOT EXPECT MONEY BACK IMMEDIATELY. You’ll only lose your money due to the highly volatile nature of not only Bitcoin, but also Forex itself is essentially a bigger gamble due to various international markets operating around the clock. Whether it be through Facebook or any other social media accounts, you cannot be suckered by such things. It’s a pandemic and the last thing one should want is to lose money. It’s precious and you should not let your emotions control the wallet. Ones intellect and wise choices dictates money. So if you’re looking to save money, do the research, be financially literate, and save the money. Nothing against this app once again, but the groups who promise for get rich quick schemes.

Telegram Review

I enjoy using the app much more than any other social media messaging platform. The ability to create group chats, call people, and customizable features in addition to a UI that is seamless with other devices, and doesn't stutter is a treat. But, in some areas telegram falls short due to lack of video messaging, the traffic seems to be lower than other platforms, and searching for groups isn't as easy as some may like it to be. Regardless, a video chat feature similar to instagrams live mode would be perfect for the group chats. If possible maybe even allowing features thats on discord to be on the app, better bots would be a plus that telegram makes themselves rather than relying on other people bots. Most bots seem to not work as well as the competition. Overall its a great 1 v 1 app, but apps such as WhatsApp or instagrams video-calling is superior, and discords bots and chat customization is superior. Telegram is the perfect middle ground that could do better.

What WhatsApp wishes it was

Pretty much everything WhatsApp has and more. Not to mention, actually good security—unlike WhatsApp. End to end encryption where the keys are kept on your device. If you do some research, Telegram’s security has been publicly audited by real world events. I work in cyber sec and use Telegram as my default messenger for everything. Whether it’s sending large files (seriously, I’ve sent files over a gigabyte) to joining a variety of channels/groups. I honestly believe Telegram could be the next IRC chat (I get all my security and tech news and updates from telegram channels faster than news sites or rss). I’ve been slowly converting my friends and family to it. Simply the best and the features just keep coming. Thank you Telegram developers! You’ve truly revolutionized decentralized messaging.

Suggestion for improvement

When I scroll the files/links shared with someone, and this person sends me a message, I do not receive the notification, and the message is considered as read like being within the chat. (which I actually am, but in another tab) I checked that on Windows, Linux and different Apple devices. It is not the issue on tablets, as the display is separated, neither on desktops, if user widens the window so that the chat and files/links are present concurrently. However on cellphone devices only chat or files/links tab can be displayed at a time. I guess it will be better to notify the user whenever they do not actually see the message with a topside pop-up and show the label “unread messages” within the chat when user is back from files/links tab.

HEADACHE

I logged out from one of my accounts and since then This app doesn’t work. All it shows is a white page. I tried restarting my phone but it didn’t help and no I don’t wanna redownload it because that will erase all of my data. The most annoying thing about an app would be this kind of losing data and you know what? This is not the first time. Sometimes with the new updates I had this problem again. In my country I can say that we pay A LOT for using internet and I’m just sick and tired of wasting it on redownloading things that I didn’t even wanted to be erased in the first place. [ and also more importantly it’s just so frustrating and time consuming ] Since it’s impossible to avoid all this kind of mistakes, in the future updates please add “mass downloading” which can offer us redownloading all the latest data we downloaded on our other devices or lost all together.

Not fully accessible using voice Over

I am visually impaired, and I use Voice Over to navigate through the various features on my IPhone 8. I am using the most current version of IOS 13. I can only use Voice Over when listening to a single contact (I can activate the play button). But when I try to activate the play button when chatting within a group, Voice Over does not work. Instead, I have to turn Voice Over off and activate play like a user who is sighted. I fortunately have enough vision to do this, but a blind or visually impaired person with less or no vision would not be able to perform the work around I have found. I have tried to report this several times, and I have received no feedback at all. I find that to be very discouraging. I know that some blind useds are experiencing the same problem while others are not, so it is not an across the board problem. However, the issue still needs to be invchstigated.

Awesome App

It’s really an awesome app. More developed, practical, helpful and simple. I believe it will be more powerful and helpful for those who have wide range businesses and need to reply to their clients with same instructions for repeated question by providing Telegram with “Quick Replies” service. Quick Replies can have a table with replies and we can call the table inside any chat by starting our reply with a symbol such as “/“ to bring the list of replies we have already to choose one quickly. Also, it will be powerful if you add “Auto Reply Message”. Auto Reply Message will be sent to those clients who text us for the first time. This message can contain information about our business and some general instructions to help the once who text us for the first time. Thank you.

Telegram is awesome.

I truly love it, I wanted to try a new app for texting and this is perfect. It has great privacy features, you can customize it in a lot of ways, and it works perfectly. I only have a small suggestion that may not be as important, but it would be a great improvement. I imported a chat from another app, and as soon as I saw hundreds of messages arriving, I regretted it. I want to delete them, but Telegram does not allow to select many messages really fast to delete them, you have to tap them one by one to select them. It would be great if it allowed users to select multiple messages faster, or if it had an option to delete imported messages in an specific chat just in case the user regrets it. But overall, a really great app, I recommend it.

New bugs in version 5

Telegram was almost bug free, but version 5 introduced a host of new bugs that were previously fixed. 1) "Last seen" time is no longer accurate. It takes a few minutes to update. Often it tells me that I was last seen 30 minutes ago, when I'm online! 2) the search feature is broken: it has the glitch that only shows 100 results maximum. Previously it used to tell me how many messages each person sent to the chat, which was in the tens of thousands. Now each person has allegedly only sent 100 messages. 3) The same old message notification keeps being pushed to my Notification Center after I've cleared it from there multiple times. This happens for days at a time for the same notification. EDIT 12/19: Developer mentioned the update, well issue 1 was not fixed with the recent update that was pushed out. However, I can report that issue 2 has been fixed. Still noticing issue 3, and will email about it. Thanks
