The Telegram: Messenger app has been silently released on the Windows Store for Windows 8.1 and Windows RT users as a completely free download (link at the end of the article). Despite the fact that it is available for free in the Windows Store, there is no advertising inside, whatsoever. The app comes with free unlimited cloud storage for all your Telegram messages and media and also focuses on security, even comparing itself to WhatsApp and having the courage to say that it is more secure than the most popular free messaging service in the world.
