Home » Download the new UWP Windows 10 Telegram App from the Windows Store

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.

Windows 10 Telegram App features:

Speed

Telegram is the fastest messaging app you can find on the market due to its use of a distributed infrastructure with data centers that are placed all over the globe in order to connect users to the nearest server.

Security

The app provides the best security features for users and Telegram encrypts data with tested algorithms.

Cloud storage

The app syncs across all your devices and you can always access your data. Your message history is stored on the Telegram could for free.

Sharing & Group Chat

With this app, you’re going to be able to form group chats with up to 200 members and also send broadcasts to a maximum of 100 contacts at a time. You’ll also be able to share documents, videos and send an unlimited number of photos.

Reliability

Telegram is the most reliable messaging system ever and is capable of working on weak mobile connections.

Free of ads

Telegram is never going to introduce subscriptions fees and never going to sell ads.

Privacy

User privacy is a serious matter and Telegram will never give access to their data to third parties.

The future looks pretty bright for Telegram. Download it from Windows Store to check it out!
