We still don’t have an official WhatsApp app in the Windows Store for Windows 8.1 and Windows RT users, but Telegram: Messenger, a service that’s been regarded similar to WhatsApp, has now been launched.

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.

Forget about WhatsApp with  Telegram: Messenger for Windows 8

There are 30 millions of people out there who are already using Telegram Messenger, so even if this is your first time when you hear about it, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go ahead and give it a try for yourself. Inside the app, you can create group chats with up to 200 people and you can share videos up to 1GB, and send multiple photos and other media.

If you own a Windows 8 tablet and you are longing for WhatsApp, you better go ahead and download Telegram: Messenger from the Windows Store and ask your friends to do the same thing so that you will be connected. Since this is the first release, be indulgent with any bugs or glitches that may appear along the road. We’ll keep a close eye on its changelog and notify of any future updates.
