The official Telegram app for Windows 10 devices received an update that packs many improvements for groups. The update provides more control for users over the instant messaging application for devices running Windows 10.
Telegram is trusted by around 200+ million users all over the world. The app is used by millions of users for sending messages, sharing photos, stickers, videos, files and any type of audio on a regular basis.
It is known to be one of the fastest messaging app that offers a unique and secure network for connecting people around the globe.
On a side note, the fact that Telegram for Windows Phone offers similar functionalities as its iOS and Android counterparts is reassuring. However, keep in mind that you need to switch to a new mobile platform soon. Microsoft will officially end support for Windows 10 Mobile in December.
