You can now find and install a Universal Windows Platform of Telegram from the Windows Store. Previously, the Telegram Messenger was made available on various platforms including iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows PC. But unfortunately, the current app for Microsoft platforms only runs on mobile devices since it’s not universal. As a desktop user, you had to download the classic Win32 version of the client from the official site.
And now, it’s great news to hear that you can find the UWP version available for installation from the Windows Store. For now, it’s not very clear if Telegram’s desktop developers are making use of the UWP’s features in their converted app. The app is going to be able to perform auto-updates via the Store but we already know by now that such updates are probably going to come out pretty rarely.
