Telegram Messenger for Negative User Reviews

Needs emailThis is a good app but there needs to have a email option!!.Version: 7.3.1

Why alerting everybody when we are using the app?Hello, I just want to express how unhappy I am with the fact that we can’t choose if the app sends alerts to our contacts that we are using the app. Why can’t we just use an app without letting our whole contact list know? This is a huge drag and the reason why I deleted the app years back and why I al going to delete it soon, I clearly do not necessarily want all my contacts to be alerted that am using an app, the second I started using after 2 years I have messages coming in from random people. I am here just for some channels my friend recommended me but now I have to be texting people or be rude and ignoring messages because they received a notification and in the app they now exactly when am or was online. THUS IS BEYOND ANNOYING. I have now to consider getting a new sim card just to be able to use the app without having people invading me..Version: 7.7

Good but has accessibility issuesIt’s a good app. Similar layout to WhatsApp. Very clean interface. Above all it’s secure and does not sell your data to advertisers. However if you are a voice-over user, then this app is not yet ready for you. Sending messages is fine. But making and receiving calls presents difficulties as buttons are not labelled. Also when sharing a file, voice-over is unable to read the names of the contacts you wish to send to. Also while sharing or forwarding voice-over is unable to identify the send or cancel button. Does not at all work with Apple Watch if you are a voice-over user..Version: 7.4.2

The calls on ipad do not workNobody can hear me on the other side of the line of i call using ipad. Please fix this..Version: 8.7.1

Maybe my arbitrary banning was for the bestBanned my number for no reason after 30 seconds of registration. Perhaps that’s for the best considering what I’m seeing here.Version: 6.3

Still has many bugs!!Used to be perfect before v.5 update. The music player is a pain, the music bar doesn’t work properly, jumps around, music stops sometimes by itself. Non-English fonts play up, text alignment is not working anymore! I don’t see any battery improvements too!.Version: 5.0.15

Disappeared from iOS share sheet on iPadsTelegram disappeared from iOS share sheets on my iOS? Back a couple of weeks it I can no longer find the icon to share to telegram, but still I can see the few dialogs I have previously shared too on the top. I tried to resolve by delete and reinstall telegram on my iPad and all options are gone. This is really annoying now..Version: 7.5.1

Good, but app support is awfulI’ve been using telegram for years now and didn’t have any problems until recently. Two months ago I started having issues with calls quality. People I’m trying to talk to can barely hear me. Every other app and telegram voice messages work fine. I’ve been trying to get reach to telegram’s support for 2 months now, but with no success. It ruins the whole point of using telegram as secure calls app….Version: 8.7.1

ScammedI received a 2nd email regarding an interview for a job I applied to. I am a recovering stroke victim, so I haven’t been able to work in almost 6 years, but recently decided to take a leap and find a remote job, as I can’t drive at the moment. This afternoon I received an email, in regards to a job I applied to. I quickly forwarded to onto my husband and he pointed out right away that it was sent from someone with a “Gmail” address and not a company email, which was the first red flag. It goes onto say I would be interviewing with this guy and said the virtual interview would take place at this platform. Ok, I have never heard of such place. The like had his name spelled without an “s”, which I found to be another Red Flag. My husband texted me back a screenshot of a scam done on behalf of this company (using this company name) and on this platform. I tried reporting this persons account, but was unsuccessful, as apparently this platform is run by volunteers. I just want to see this persons account shut down. I tried searching this person on LinkedIn and couldn’t find any matches. I tried searching without the “s” and still no searches. I contacted the company and the lady told me they are not hiring for remote jobs, only on-site and apologized. She said no one by the names I gave her worked for the company. I immediately deleted this app and will be more careful in the near further..Version: 8.4.1

Spam a day keeps me awayThe dev team are doing an amazing job with the features released for this app. But it’s all overshadowed by the spam that constantly get through any privacy settings. I have every privacy setting as “contacts only” but I still get messages from scammers I don’t know. Same with my close family and friends. We’ve all had enough and moved to another platform..Version: 9.1.1

ProblemNow im updated telegram but i cant talked video or voice call in gorup (I have iphon 6) Please fixed bug..Version: 8.7.1

I love the app, the quality of the calls though..I’m in love with Telegram and its potential. I am constantly trying to convince friends to switch to Telegram. I hate the fact that Whatsapp is controlled by Facebook. BUT Telegram guys need to work a lot on the quality of the audio calls, and introduce video calls. Then I will be ready to ditch WA. Every time I try to use TG to make a call, quality is very poor almost unusable. In different sort of situations and with different connections, I find myself switching to WA or Skype to make a phone call. Please do something for this problem and I will continue to speak gold about your app and convince all of my friends.Version: 5.5.1

Forget telegram for audio callsUsing telegram for years now. Was really excited when they introduced audio calls with very crisp and great quality. However this is not the case anymore. I haven’t had a satisfying call since very long time now. Other apps and solutions seem to work well at the same time telegram has issues which excludes the bandwidth being the problem. Please fix this telegram or remove the functionality. Until this has been done I cannot give it more stars..Version: 6.0

Not being allowed to remove this app!!DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! I downloaded this app then realised it was owned by Russians. Tried to delete it from my phone and I am not being given that option! Feeling like my privacy is being compromised and there is nothing I can do about it until I hear back from Apple Support! Nuts.Version: 8.7.1

ScamAs a result of downloading this app and using my cellphone number, I have since received hundreds of scam text messages stating I have a courier package awaiting my pick up with scam url attached in the messages. Not impressed Telegram leaking users personal cellphone numbers. 🤬.Version: 8.5.1

Almost perfect - needs to remove auto audio record!Fantastic app, fast, handles multi devices so well. One major issue with iOS app - it has a horrible feature that you can’t turn off. It’s designed to start recording audio every time you hold the phone to your ear. ...which also does it every time you put it in your pocket before locking, or close your case cover over the screen, etc..Version: 4.9.2

Could be so good...If only there weren’t so many buggy things in it! Being part of a huge group where on some days, thousands of messages come in, we should be able to select those that we want to delete from OUR side only. Not only messages that we’ve sent, but messages others have sent. But no, that’s not possible. When you click on the message, it does’ show’ the option of deleting, but alas when you choose the trash can, it brings up a helpful (NOT!!) message saying you don’t have to delete as there’s plenty of space given everything gets stored on the cloud. THAT’S NOT THE POINT!! SOME OF US JUST WANT TO KEEP RELEVANT MESSAGES and NOT have to trawl through all the others. Why is that difficult to grasp? Every other platform you can delete things you don’t want to keep. But oh no, not here. There’s more I would feedback, if only I knew someone was listening. But no one is. From this app, we just get crickets. Who makes an app and then ignores the people using it? Doesn’t make sense to me. But then I’m only a consumer. Hours searching for a solution results in nothing. Messages to the ‘support team’ (in app) results in deafening silence. Reaching out on social media - nada. Should I send a carrier pigeon?.Version: 6.2

In desperate need of Group Video ChatHey, I’ve been using Telegram for over 10+ years and I haven’t had any problems with this application whatsoever everything works great but, there is one issue that I have with this application and that is the inability to create a group video chat that is why I can only give telegram 3 stars. I honestly believe that is a crucial disadvantage to this application I say that because, I have family and friends that live all over the world whether it be in different states or different countries and we all have telegram on our phones. That being said we would like to I’ll be able to talk in a video group chat with each other which we are unable to because this application doesn’t provide that option. So therefore since telegram doesn’t provide a video group chat option we have to download another application to be able to do that Task. Which in my opinion is extremely ridiculous because you should be able to perform the test on this app as well. Instead of making people waste valuable space on their phones by download in other apps to perform the test where y’all can provide that ability on your app so we don’t have to download other apps to perform that and we could save space on our Devices..Version: 7.4.2

Feature need to updateIf one feature is available in desktop version than why you guys block in mobile app. You can’t carry laptop with you all the time. Think before you doing such changes or better remove everything. It’s better to give the option in mobile app as well instead of blocking everything. 😡.Version: 8.6

Please add a quick toggle to change themesOr an autonight theme..Version: 4.7.1

We need your cooperationWe need your cooperation to investigate the sex offenders associated with the Nth Room.Version: 5.15.2

Notification center bugHey guys, just wanted you to know there’s a bug in telegram, the screen in iphone x when you reply in notification center, the screen stock, even pressing any button or the assistive touch won’t work, you have to restart the phone in order for it to work again hope you fix this asap thanks.Version: 7.2

No way!No security! nothing!! easy to scam people ...Version: 8.7.1

ContactsI like using this app. But what I don’t like is that I haven’t given telegram access to my phone book to find friends yet the app somehow knows exactly when someone who is in my phone contacts joins and even ppl who have been deleted from my phone contacts pop up saying they have joined! Somehow telegram is accessing my phone book even though I have denied them permission 🤬.Version: 7.7

Signing UpWhen l enter my phone number its goes like this: +1 653 734 1 - then l tap on Enter and it obviously says: Invalid Phone Number! No matter what l do l Can't join the 4 and 1 together! So l can register!! Then l tap on Help and it says: Sign up with Email. BUT there No text boxes to type in my email - nothing shows up!! Isn't it the purpose of your app to Register?? Make it easier please....Version: 8.5.1

Low speaker volume during callsWhenever I call somebody and tap on speaker, many times the call volume do not increase. I would still need to hold the phone over my ear to hear the other person just like a normal call. Please fix this and I’ll update my review.Version: 9.0.2

Nth Room - We need your cooperationMinors and young women in South Korea were sexually exploited and abused by Telegram users. They blackmailed the victims and forced them to take pornographies that are extremely atrocious, and sold those videos to other users through Telegram. The police and the ministry of justice of South Korea are trying to track the perpetrators down and bring them to justice but Telegram is not responding to the investigation cooperation request. Even at this very moment, the perpetrators are laughing at people because they believe Telegram will not cooperate with the investigation and thus it will be impossible for South Korean government to charge them for the crime they have committed. We, as members of the global community, have the responsibility to make positive changes to the world we live in. We must help the victims and protect millions of women and children. Telegram should respond to the request and cooperate with the investigation..Version: 5.15.2

Memory sucker on older device… had to deleteIPad Air 2 (discontinued in 2017) ground to a halt and became glitchy. I am using Telegram for accessing a dozen or so active groups, and all of the device memory and resources seemed to go toward processing new messages and pushing me notifications. Would probably be fine if you had plenty of free space but that’s not me right now..Version: 7.4.1

We need your cooperationWe need your cooperation about Nth room which happened in Korea. You have a responsibility to help us to punish them because it occured on your app.Version: 5.15.2

Stickers problemHaving sticker problem (as described below - scroll within packs is not responsive, gets stuck and then takes ages to scroll through the actual pack) on four iPhones - iPhone SE, 11 and 12 (same account) and iPhone 11 Pro (different account). Choosing a sticker takes 5 times longer and this hasn’t been fixed in last two updates. Rather disappointing… so many people are addressing this problem!!! How come it’s overlooked?.Version: 8.8.3

Telegram ReviewI enjoy using the app much more than any other social media messaging platform. The ability to create group chats, call people, and customizable features in addition to a UI that is seamless with other devices, and doesn't stutter is a treat. But, in some areas telegram falls short due to lack of video messaging, the traffic seems to be lower than other platforms, and searching for groups isn't as easy as some may like it to be. Regardless, a video chat feature similar to instagrams live mode would be perfect for the group chats. If possible maybe even allowing features thats on discord to be on the app, better bots would be a plus that telegram makes themselves rather than relying on other people bots. Most bots seem to not work as well as the competition. Overall its a great 1 v 1 app, but apps such as WhatsApp or instagrams video-calling is superior, and discords bots and chat customization is superior. Telegram is the perfect middle ground that could do better..Version: 5.7

Delay notifications & online statusTelegram is giving delay notifications, the message will be received but the notification sound and numbers were taking too long. Sometimes a single message will not be notified at all unless opening the app. This is so uncomfortable while using the app. The online status will show green longer even after exiting the app. It will take at least a minute to show offline even after exiting the app. This two issues have to be fixed..Version: 5.14

PLEASE FIX YOUR APPI think having volunteer support people is not viable because there is no one we can contact for bugs to be fixed! There is no way for me to report a bug! Ever since premium became available and the most recent updates, I have had more issues in telegram than ever. Why do messages not send at all? Why are people receiving my messages hours or a day later? This includes text messages, voice notes and scheduled messages!! Basically the whole use of the app! Even when both people are connected to the internet (and other internet-based apps work on their phone) and the app is showing the 1 tick that it is sent. When it’s actually not sent?! When one person sends a voice note or message - sometimes it just disappears into the abyss and never gets delivered at all! Or someone opens up their phone in the morning and suddenly there are heaps of messages from the day before that are only arriving on app open the next day. Last active time is also inaccurate at times. It makes no sense that an ‘instant message’ is not being delivered to the receiver either at all or in a delayed manner. This isn’t good enough and frankly quite upsetting when you rely on the app to communicate. It is like missing entire days and chunks of conversations with people. Likely will be switching to whatsapp in the very near future..Version: 9.0.1

Latest version introduces a really annoying bugThe Feb. 3 update still includes the really annoying bug. To test the new update, I typed "This is a test of Telegram's new updated app." Here is what Telegram got: "Thisi atTelegram's nbew pda app." Clearly, this is still completely unusable. If anything, the number of dropped characters is worse than it was originally. Original review: Updating to the latest version introduced a really bad bug that causes keyboard input to get corrupted. When I type on my Bluetooth keyboard now, Telegram acts like I also typed random backspaces every few characters, completely messing up the words I type, and inducing auto-correct to change many of the messed-up words to something completely different. Please fix this right away! I've installed every update since the bug was introduced, and none of them have addressed the problem! I just updated again today (Jan. 9), and the problem is as bad as ever. I have to type very slowly and constantly correct Telegram's mistakes, making it nearly unusable..Version: 5.14.1

Accessibility failure for the blindThis app is incredibly difficult to use on the iPhone using the screen reader. In fact, the search function doesn’t even work correctly. I tried to search for a Telegram group, and even though the group exists (having verified it via the website), the app won’t find it. Trying to get to the group manually results of my being locked in one of the secondary screens with no way out! And if you think that’s bad, the telegram app for OS X presents a completely inaccessible Contant pain that is blank so far as the screen reader is concerned. No way to interact with it at all! So, if you’re blind, or otherwise print disabled, this app is not for you. Oh, and I actually tried to contact the developer via their webpage and, guess what? There is no contact us link, the support page is so messy that I can’t even get to the right section. This company is a freaking joke. My honest assessment, they don’t care if you’re blind. They just want users and if you’re not part of the “in the crowd“, you’re locked out..Version: 8.9

Crash after updateApp crash after update.Version: 8.7

Negative content, spam is increasingThe developer of this app does not usually act to reports of violence or abuse content. There are large channels that make profits from illegal drugs ads, reporting those ads does not make any difference, the channels just grow. No child content controls. Strange that Apple classified it as 17+ in the app store, it's clearly 18+ content, if not 21. Spam is also on the increase, with the most recent campaign being an employment scam whereby a person approaches you with a message of potential highly paid bit easy online job but they actually fish for further personal details. But the app admins usually identify and remove these messages within a day, perhaps due to high number of reports. Functionally, it's a competitive app, with typical cons and pros. Non-existent support, as many other complained..Version: 9.3.2

Not fully accessible using voice OverI am visually impaired, and I use Voice Over to navigate through the various features on my IPhone 8. I am using the most current version of IOS 13. I can only use Voice Over when listening to a single contact (I can activate the play button). But when I try to activate the play button when chatting within a group, Voice Over does not work. Instead, I have to turn Voice Over off and activate play like a user who is sighted. I fortunately have enough vision to do this, but a blind or visually impaired person with less or no vision would not be able to perform the work around I have found. I have tried to report this several times, and I have received no feedback at all. I find that to be very discouraging. I know that some blind useds are experiencing the same problem while others are not, so it is not an across the board problem. However, the issue still needs to be invchstigated..Version: 5.15.2

Secure?Wont work if you happen to block various trackers at firewall level (including Google). As soon as you open the door to trackers, it works fine. Did telegram just sell its soul?.Version: 7.3.1

Good app. But turn to bad app nowI’ve been using my telegram account for more than 5 years ago and Telgram are banning people account without warning. I lost everything I keep on my Telgram and all the important information between me and my business partner all the necessary conversation was lost I try to unbanned my account and there is no where to contact support please Telgram should do something about that Telegram is the most texting all I love most in all app I’ve been using in my life but I hate it so much now because of what it’s happening my Telegram account was banned without any warning and it was logged out of my phone I have some secret conversations I keep there and I lost everything there are so many things I keep I couldn’t get it back I try to contact telegram support if my number can be unbanned to regain back my account and everything I have in it but I got no response. I think something must be done about that please thank you.Version: 9.2

Good app for communication, but no good for investments***Disclaimer*** This is only describing the various situations where forex group chats exist on the service. Nothing against the actual service itself, only the Forex groups on the app ***Disclaimer*** So the app is wonderful in terms of communication, and a good competitor to Whatsapp (another wonderful messaging service). My only beef is the fact that I was the idiot (last October) to download the app due to being suckered by a rando online about a bitcoin forex. I was unaware of such financial lingo, assuming that I would get my return profit in 48 hours. Biggest mistake If people recommend you to various places that offer a return profit via forex, DO NOT EXPECT MONEY BACK IMMEDIATELY. You’ll only lose your money due to the highly volatile nature of not only Bitcoin, but also Forex itself is essentially a bigger gamble due to various international markets operating around the clock. Whether it be through Facebook or any other social media accounts, you cannot be suckered by such things. It’s a pandemic and the last thing one should want is to lose money. It’s precious and you should not let your emotions control the wallet. Ones intellect and wise choices dictates money. So if you’re looking to save money, do the research, be financially literate, and save the money. Nothing against this app once again, but the groups who promise for get rich quick schemes..Version: 7.4.2

Huge battery drainMy mom has a habit of turning off the screen on a playing video or audio clip. It takes telegram a couple of hours to completely drain the battery. I don’t know why a paused video or audio in the background has such a devastating effect..Version: 5.9.1

Ya sure it works but....Ya it works and has nice features. It’s convenient. It’s fast. The only (MAJOR) problem is that they claim it’s secure (it’s entire purpose and principle since birth), while its (as far as I’m concerned) intentionally NOT. No one with half a brain has used DH security since at least a decade ago. Why? Because it’s been cracked 6 ways from Sunday, and is trivial to attack it in real-time. Perhaps that’s why they’re using it? Also, take note of their privacy practices. That’s all you really need to see to understand this couldn’t be a more inappropriately identified app than possible....Version: 7.6.1

I have written to Support unfortunately they did not write back. I use that feature every day because I’m dyslexic, it would be nice to see that fixed..Version: 9.2.1

Be sure to review all default Settings!What an awful install/setup experience this was I didn’t think default settings could get worse than FB Messenger Forces you to upload all your Contacts when I actually just wanted to specifically message one friend… why can’t it be a choice to manually add a contact? Shows you online by default, when I don’t want hundreds of blast-from-the-past contacts seeing I’m online until I manage to find the setting otherwise And almost every other default setting that was On I had to switch Off 🤦🏼‍♀️ But that’s the mass appeal, I get it, just not for me If you’re a kid who loves emojis & GIFs in messages, you’ll love this app.Version: 8.6

Great app ruined by latest updateThe most recent update (Jan 2023) has totally screwed the app. It has been a fantastic alternative to Twit, for those of us still in Twitter Gulag, but this most recent update has rendered Telegram sluggish and slow, failing to load media, even items which have previously been cashed. Running it on a 12mth old iPhone, and given that it changed the instant the update was installed it’s unlikely to be my phone storage causing this problem. PLEASE fix this issue ASAP, it’s been brilliant up to now!.Version: 9.3.1

SPAM SPAM SPAMTelegram's base functions are great, but the app is severely let down by a lack of an effective spam filtering strategy. Every 1-2 days I get included in spam conversations along with hundreds of other people. When hundreds of unrelated people, who are not even in each others contacts lists, are being included in a conversation, surely that's a red flag that it's a spam conversation, and surely this is something that a basic algorithm could detect and prevent? But no, apparently not. Either that or Telegrams developers just don't care about the pervasive spam problem. Only 2-stars from me until the spam issue is fixed 😒.Version: 8.7

8.8.2 still trashes constantlyThe app still struggles to connect stay connected and crashes when messages are forwarded. Profile pictures are mostly missing and emoji don't load they’re just little question marks. I guess a stable build is reserved for premium users. The app once worked seamlessly with an occasional hiccup but ever since the introduction of the “download manager” features and those features that have been introduced to help content creators to monetize their channels but in reality just gave people who have little power in the real world to become gatekeepers to content they didn’t even create or pay for. It’s funny to hear the creator of Telegram on his high horse when the app that originally touted as always being free to now barely working & creating more ways for trolls to exploit people unless you wish to pay for premium. I can deal with the gate keepers and shameless grabs for money if the app works well but it doesn’t and it’s not like I have an old obsolete phone I have an iPhone 12 ProMax for god sakes yet the app works like it’s on a jail broken iPhone 3G.Version: 8.9.1

Media autosave is broken since iOS 12 release and calls dropping every few minHey dev team, the auto save feature for all media (images specifically) isn’t working since I updated to publicly available ios 12. It worked perfectly on all betas of iOS 12 and stable versions of previous iOS but now it became very frustrating as I expected to see all images received to be in photo gallery but aren’t being saved for some reason. I tried reinstalling both Telegram and iOS, tested telegram on 3 different iPhones but nothing seem to be helpful in this case. Media auto save is enabled in settings and app has access to photos so no permission issues as far as I understand. I also sent a message to app support few weeks ago and never head back from them so this is the last step before I start looking for alternatives. Another big issue is calls quality/reliability. Every time I call someone after few min I hear beeps that indicate lost/poor network, then I can hear other party again but they can’t hear me or call just drops after 15-20 seconds. The longer the call (multiple calls) is the more often it breaks and I have to call that person again. I’m on latest iOS 12.0.1 and iPhone XS Max 256. Hoping to see these two fixed in the next update. Once this and dropping calls is fixed Telegram will be again my favorite messenger. Until then - 2 star review..Version: 5.0.13

Annoyingly creates new chats with new contactsThis app is a great app, however, one feature which is really annoying is that it creates a new chat automatically with any of your contacts who join Telegram. The frustrating part about it is that there’s no setting which allows you to turn this ridiculous feature off. How absurd! It’s bad enough that I can’t stop notifications about new users from my contacts but to start a chat with them automatically is something I’m so shocked an app would set as a default setting. Come on Telegram, sort this out!!!.Version: 5.15.2

Remote Job offer Scam!! PoleHuggerMusicIf anyone stumbles upon an indeed job listing for “polehuggermusic” which is a mic stand accessory company and they ask you to have an interview on this app, it is 100% a scam. They asked for my social and license to be emailed to a gmail account by the name of Justin Howard. The whole interview was through this app only texting and at the end of answering a few questions they said “you’re hired!” Please send your personal information to this email. He said in the beginning I could ask questions at the end, so I proceeded to do so. After over an hour with no response I followed up on my questions in which he responded “what do you want?” I said if he could kindly answer my questions and he responded with “well you can decline the job offer! Thank you!”. This is the biggest scam if I’ve ever seen one so please anyone looking to get employed by this company- ITS A SCAM!! thank you..Version: 8.8.1

Worst app everIdk what happened there but telegram has become even more useless corrupt garbage I can’t even place any audio video call first thing I always get is busy contacting and app crash repeatedly non stop to actually make a call work takes at least 10-15 attempts at Lou’s not always we can hear each other connects without a proper loudness or tome total trash waste of anyone’s money and time what the hell r u people updating and concentrating on various stickers emojis and other trash rather than fixing audio video call functions ! Shame on you guys worst ever app made I don’t recommend this trash to anyone !.Version: 9.3

Updated the app and now it won't workTypical of arrogant companies. I updated this app and found that it wouldn't work anymore. I can't uninstall this crappy update either. My device is an iPad 4 running iOS version 10.3.4 (the last one that is made for this device) and can't go beyond this version. It didn't come up with any message saying it wasn't compatible, so as far as I'm concerned Telegram deliberately bricked this app with all my contacts and groups I belonged to now inaccessible on this device..Version: 8.8.1

SusRussian Hackers are evil.Version: 8.5.1

I hated the appTelegram bot show me this message I’m afraid some Telegram users found your messages annoying and forwarded them to our team of moderators for inspection. The moderators have confirmed that you’ve been sending spam. Unfortunately, your account is now limited. Without any evidence! And everyone is adding me to their channels even I block not to add me in privacy settings it’s crap.Version: 8.5.1

Secure?????? I don’t think sad o 😖When I joined I noticed my son’s number in there. It’s clearly not him so I checked with him. How could someone join using his number??? Is this a way people can try and get info from you if you think it is them. There’s another contact in my list but I’m sure it’s not her either. I was very regretful I have joined. If this is not fixed I would be scared someone could pose as me. Have sent msg to where it says. Better get some help or I’ll be telling all I know not to use this!!!!.Version: 7.0.1

Bug in App & Mentioned Features NeededTake ages to send video! Every time when sending a video it doesn’t send then have to press resend! There is a bug in app, when someone has messaged and then when they call, it will make their messages as read where I haven’t even opened the telegram app. How can 2 ticks shown on their side when chat is not opened or read. I have tested on different mobiles and found out this issue. Secondly, when they call and even after pressing decline to end call, it will make all their message notifications disappear. It seems like this issue is linked with above issue which makes their chat messages as read when app is not even opened and decline button pressed on call. Features mentioned below are needed: • Caption for Photo/Video on Share Sheet When we share any photos or videos, there’s a section let us add a comment to the photo/video which get sent separately on the chat not captioned with the photo/video. Please allow us to send photos/videos with caption on the photo/video not sending the text separately. • Group Read Timestamp Please let us see the Group members DELIVERED / READ time like we see on WhatsApp’s groups. This is an important feature which is missing from Telegram. • Status Almost every app has a status feature. Please implement this for us on Telegram too. I have been convincing many people to switch to Telegram but unfortunately due to lack of these features. Users who switched, they go back to WhatsApp..Version: 7.0.1

Nice app some bugs to fixPlease fix the following problems - audio quality is mediocre Voice echoes constantly on the speakers end - voice volume tends to slowly dissipate becoming very hard to listen to the other party on the other side of the line. Every time the server is relayed you loose sound quality. It happens all the time. You and up using other VOIP apps unfortunately - the cosmetics of the App are nice backgrounds, perks etc but voice transfer of files etc are always a dread and hard to work with. Have to rely on the other Apps to do this resulting in having to completely go back to the Facebook apps that work well. Thank you for trying to solve this ASAP By the way signal is really cool too , ágain some things are not 100%.Version: 7.6

Mask, stickers, and chatrooms don’t workI love the idea of this app and I love that it has polls, rules set, bots, and other things but my app crashes 100% of the time when ever I go into settings to check out the “Masks”. It just kicks me out the app than when I look for stickers there’s only a few compared to what others claim they have (I’m only seeing a little when others have and see a lot more options than me) and I’m unable to find Chatrooms. The only option I have is to open messages to chat with someone but I want to go to a chatroom. Not chat with someone. Someone said I’m fully missing the icon (a magnify glass) and only have the box with a pencil which is for starting a new message with someone. Can this be fixed soon? I just download the app three days ago. So there isn’t any updates I’m neglecting to update when it says the last update was two week ago. Someone mind helping?.Version: 5.11.1

Not secure! What has happened to this app?I do not even know why anyone would use this app anymore! Not private! Believe this app has loopholes where your identity is exposed! Do not want all of my contacts on telegram,why are you demanding my contacts?! You should be able to choose whom you would want! Then there is an alarm bell to tell the whole universe that you are using it and when someone else joins! Delete delete delete! If you are concerned about your person data please do not download! Cannot find any interesting individuals to follow anymore as apparently they have all been banned! So much for free speech, you are the weekest link goodbye!.Version: 8.7.1

Spam message from strangersPro: At first I was happy with the app because of short video message, very convenient and fund to do so. Con: video quality is by far worse than other app; also I was spam by message from strangers many times at night when I was sleep. This app is famous for security, how could it happens?.Version: 7.9.2

Hello IndiaApp sucks. I am in Canada and some how I only get chats from India or the 3rd world. What a nightmare!.Version: 8.5.1

Deleted years of memories .. the only copies I had!I would rate this app a 5 star as I use it all the time and have been since 2015- not to mention the messaging the fact I could save an unlimited amount of memories, the ease of contact and sending videos and other media, it was perfect until this! I had many photos and videos saved onto the Telegram server from 2016 to date. Telegram has now deleted and erased all my videos and photos from 2017 and 2018 and they were the only copies I had!! I am extremely angry and disappointed in this as they state they save everything on their server. There is no way to get in touch with customer service as I have attempted over the last few months as well as today!!! Don’t bother using this app to save stuff, it glitches and bugs a lot. I’m deeply saddened and lost as I had so many memories in there that I will never get back because I cannot get through to no one. I know it sounds stupid to only keep photos here but I assumed it was trusted like Dropbox and the iCloud as that is how they advertised it! How can my photos be deleted off a cloud service!!! By themselves!! Without my permission!! I am stunned and incredibly angry and sad!.Version: 5.1.1

A scammer on telegramHi, There is someone who pretend to be Pierogi of Scammerpayback, tried to scam me . He is using scammerpayback0 to scam people. Please check this . This happened when I gave a commenton YouTube and this person answer me , telling me to go on telegram at the address I just gave you. On telegram he asked for money, so I knew he was a scammer. Scammerpayback0..Version: 8.7.1

Not as secure as you thinkTelegram do offer end to end encryption, but not by default, only with their secret chats which are really fiddly to set up. If you've downloaded Telegram for more privacy and are using the normal messages it offers, they're only encrypted until they get to a Telegram server, which means that Telegram could see what you've been messaging if they wanted too! Also as they use their own encryption protocol for normal and secret chats, we don't know how secure that encryption is. Messengers that offer end to end encryption by default include WhatsApp, Signal and iMessage. There are other problems with Telegram too. Unlike WhatsApp, there's no way for members of a group to clear chats off of their phone, that's crazy because messages take up space on people's phones. The good thing I will say for Telegram is that they're voice messages are way clearer than other messengers..Version: 8.7.1

‼️‼️ WARNING ‼️‼️This app could be brilliant but it is full of scammers. Trust no-one. I got scammed out of a lot of money then the scammer and his multiple fake IDs had the nerve to report ME and “Support” are taking his side and have banned me from commenting in all groups so that I cannot warn others about this guy. I have never spammed or done anything wrong and have even asked “Support” to at least show me the alleged crime I have committed - but they can’t/won’t. Be VERY careful if you use this app as it only takes one person to report you - just don’t expect “Support” to be of any help as they automatically take the side of the purportrator. Support told me that I can still use the app to watch other people chat but cannot participate in it myself. Whoop-de-doo 😐 You couldn’t make it up… On the slim off-chance that “Support” either prove that I’ve done something wrong OR lift this ridiculous ban on me commenting (although it’s been 3 weeks so far), I will then amend this review - but I’m not holding my breath… 🤷🏼‍♀️.Version: 8.9.1

DisappointedI’m disappointed that telegram has been censoring comments much like other social media. What is the reason for stating that the comments have pornograghic content? That is such a lie. Stop with the censorship!.Version: 7.7

DELETING CHATSHi I have been a big fan of your app and I have been using it for along time even after it got filtered in my country ( Iran ) and I still use it. but recently in your updates you added an option which any side of the chat can delete all their messages and the person who sent the message and this is just ridiculous and this made me really mad and after that update I literally use half of the time I use to do. I really hope you change this update or at least put and option which I can turn on/ off so the other person wouldn't delete all the things I sent.I also know a-lot of people who stopped using telegram because of this option you added and I also lost a-lot of documents I don't know whose idea was that to put this option but it is just dumb and I really really hope you change it as fast as possible.Version: 5.13

Notifications Drive Me InsaneThe app is quite good but I gave it 3 stars because it’s notifications feature is horrific. I absolutely loathe apps that don’t respect my notifications preferences and this one in particular doesn’t like to suppress the very annoying ones that come in every single time someone in my contacts list joins Telegram. I really don’t care to know who joins the service from my contacts every time it occurs. Turning this notification off does not from stoping them from continuing to arrive in-app, and the only way to stop this is to turn off Notifications in my phone’s global settings, but doing so will make one forego notifications that I do care about, such as from new messages. It’s baffling they choose to force users have to deal with this, it’s the one thing that’s making me consider leaving the app altogether..Version: 8.6

SuggestionsNew to the app and liking it. Would prefer to have a copy link or share link to invite friends via sms, email, a message on another platform. This could possibly in the settings or in a more obvious and convenient location. Another feature could be a story tab like fb, messenger & Instagram..Version: 6.1.2

Good but needs improvementsI like the App, it has a lot of features, but couple of things are missing compare to other Apps: 1) Group video calls. 2) Using system contacts photos, Signal App uses this feature and it’s great, makes it easier to find contacts specially for those who don’t use photos in their profiles or use random ones, so let the App uses my own contacts photo! Bugs need to be fixed: 1) notifications don’t work properly, sometimes you get the message previews on lock screen and sometimes nothing. 2) in group chats sometimes it doesn’t say who sent the message or media, no name tag shows. And I think you should add the senders name on every single message, not just the last one! It’s really annoying and confusing trying to figure out who sent what! Thanks.Version: 7.6.1

Gone downhillI used to love this app. It was my preferred method of communication, especially with work teams and clients. However it’s become so spammy now I can’t stand it and will have to uninstall. I am constantly being randomly added to spam chats (normally finance or crypto) and have to block and leave and report the groups. This is happening daily..Version: 9.0.2

Please don’t alert me on who has joined TelegramI have had Telegram for a few years. I installed it because some contact mentioned that they use is for communication just like many other of global contacts who use various different Apps for communication and I download them to make it easy for my contact to reach me. I have about 11 such apps and Telegram is the only App that will intermittently big me with notifications that someone in my contact list has joined Telegram and other silly alerts that have noting to go with me receiving a message from a contact. I just received 11 notifications back to back that 11 of my contacts joined Telegram. First of all it’s not a coincidence that 11 different people who have nothing in common other than being in my contact list join Telegram at the very same second. So obviously, this is a cheap way of Telegram trying to engage with me. I seriously don’t give a crap who is in or not. If they are and they need to reach me then and only then I’d like to be alerted. Kindly fix your unnecessary alerts or give me the option of what alerts I’d like to get and I’ll change my ratings for you..Version: 5.13

Need imediate helpHi telegram is one of the best communication apps out there but the ownership of channels and groups is a pain in the neck really, i have bought a channel from an admin and she claimed that she owns the channel i had no idea about owner stuff and that you can transfer the ownership of channels until it was late, she by mistake made someone admin with her other account just when i thought she had left the channel with her both accounts when i demanded an answer she refused stubbornly to do so, so i did a research and found out that iam just an admin despite paying huge amount of cash and now she refuses to co operate but can get back at any time and kick me from moy own chhannel i wrote to telegram support saying i have all the vidence that i paid money to this guy and chat records are there too but they didnt answered back 😞😔 it seems that there is no hope for me....Version: 7.8.2

BackupWe need backup for our chats.Version: 4.7

“Raise to listen” is horrible, and circle videos force auto playTelegram does a lot of things right, but its total lack of customization of usability settings isn’t one of them. “Raise to listen“ is forced on. Any random time something comes close to your phone, it decides you’ve raised it to your head and starts a voice recording. There’s a secret debug menu (not mentioned anywhere) accessed by tapping “settings” 10 times, but even turning it off there doesn’t fix it. This breaks when more since circle videos autoplay — a conversation with them means you’ll constantly be going back to watch someone’s that you missed, and then *your* video after will play. Possibly at double their volume. And you’ll have to stop it manually, every single time. But what’s worse is that if any circle video is paused, and there’s play/pause on the top bar, then raise to listen will override and play *no matter what*. Even if you have it forced off in the secret debug menu. For every hour of circle video conversation, this means manually stopping autoplay and having to hit the little X literally hundreds of times just to make your own recordings not play loudly at you, and your phone’s sensor not delete what you were recording because a cat got too close to your phone and it decided it was your ear. All because Telegram really, *really* doesn’t like giving you options as to how you use the app..Version: 5.15.1

Problem with Telegram chat linksHello I got a problem that if anyone would share a link of their Telegram link, it will not open.

IPad version has a memory leakChats with GIFs seem to be the biggest cause, but after 5 min of using and viewing gifs the performance of gifs becomes a slide show. What is worse it even slows down all other apps on the device. Just 15-30min in a system reboot is needed. (Force closing the app doesn’t fix it) — This is probably also an iPad OS bug (I’m on latest OS v14.6) but this issue has happened to two iPads of mine, iPad Pro 10.5” (I think it was 2017) and still occurs with a brand new iPad Pro 12” 2021 model! This issue has happened for almost a year now and there has not been a fix. Im very disappointed at this point. I have no idea why this only occurs on iPad devices, iOS devices dont have this issue. My iPhone 8 runs telegram so much better and that phone is so much older. :(.Version: 7.7

Be careful of child pornography!This app is not moderated at all, which I would think goes against Apple’s policies, but the result is that you will be randomly added to chats that have content you probably don’t want to see. Be sure to go in to your settings and change it so that you can’t be added to channels by everyone. I have no idea why that’s the default setting. Before I found that setting I had been added to some horrible channels that should not exist. This app is a breeding ground for conspiracy theorists and human traffickers, so be very, very careful about which channels you join. Low rating not only because of how detrimental apps like this are to society, but also because of how broken it often is. If you’re in a channel where people share lots of pictures or videos, you’ll often have to force quit the app because it will get stuck when trying to load the media. The search function is also frustrating. If there are several results, interacting with anything takes you out of search and you have to start over if you want to look at the next thing..Version: 9.0.2

Worked well till I can’t sign inNo issues at all with the app but I deleted the account to make a new one because I had so many scammers contacting me and now it says I have to wait “a few days” before making an account again.. not sure how many days a few is but that was a few days ago and I still can’t use it.Version: 7.7

New download number bannedNever downloaded this app before but when I entered my number I get a message saying my number was banned. I’ve sent 4-5 messages for help and haven’t received any help back..Version: 7.3.1

Decent app, but has some problems.There’s a couple privacy settings that aren’t provided that probably should be. For starters you can’t add a decoy phone number which essentially negates any purpose of having the app in the first place. Secondly, even if you don’t give Telegram access to your contacts, if someone on your contacts starts using Telegram they will automatically be added to the contacts screen in the app as well as prompt a conversation with them in the chats screen, this is especially bad if you’re, let’s say trying to use the app to contact someone who you can’t contact through discord anymore and you’re also trying to hide a certain aspect of your life from family members like an aunt who just so happens to start using that while you have your account completely exposing the part of your life you want hidden..Version: 7.6.2

HEADACHEI logged out from one of my accounts and since then This app doesn’t work. All it shows is a white page. I tried restarting my phone but it didn’t help and no I don’t wanna redownload it because that will erase all of my data. The most annoying thing about an app would be this kind of losing data and you know what? This is not the first time. Sometimes with the new updates I had this problem again. In my country I can say that we pay A LOT for using internet and I’m just sick and tired of wasting it on redownloading things that I didn’t even wanted to be erased in the first place. [ and also more importantly it’s just so frustrating and time consuming ] Since it’s impossible to avoid all this kind of mistakes, in the future updates please add “mass downloading” which can offer us redownloading all the latest data we downloaded on our other devices or lost all together..Version: 7.1.2

New bugs in version 5Telegram was almost bug free, but version 5 introduced a host of new bugs that were previously fixed. 1) "Last seen" time is no longer accurate. It takes a few minutes to update. Often it tells me that I was last seen 30 minutes ago, when I'm online! 2) the search feature is broken: it has the glitch that only shows 100 results maximum. Previously it used to tell me how many messages each person sent to the chat, which was in the tens of thousands. Now each person has allegedly only sent 100 messages. 3) The same old message notification keeps being pushed to my Notification Center after I've cleared it from there multiple times. This happens for days at a time for the same notification. EDIT 12/19: Developer mentioned the update, well issue 1 was not fixed with the recent update that was pushed out. However, I can report that issue 2 has been fixed. Still noticing issue 3, and will email about it. Thanks.Version: 5.1

Call Quality is poorIt's been great for messaging and feature rich but call quality is poor..Version: 7.3.1

Great.... ButI love telegram, a friend put me onto the app. It's nice for dating when you don't want to give out your number or socials to stay discreet. You can only voice call no video call.. I don't mind though, you can send videos, pictures and voice messages. But they took away timed photos/videos. That was my FAVORITE feature, it's like Snapchat if I want to send a video or picture I could time it... But I can't anymore, please bring feature back. It seems like every single update they take away a great feature, I shouldn’t have to download something on my computer to sign into a new phone , I know it makes you guys think you’re being secure but it’s making it more complicated.... bout ready to say a few this app and go to WhatsApp , not everyone has a computer they can concurrently download on just to sign in on a new phone . Like come on do better.Version: 6.2.1

Only 5 pin groupsWhy, god WHY limiting the pinned channel to 5!! God, I am in 100 groups, and NEED to have at least 10 pinned to not miss some messages. Why not allowing us to pin as much as we want?!? Even if it mean being drowned under messages, that would be MY problem (will not be in my situation aniway). I am certainly looking for an alternative… someone has one?!? All other chat app have more, this is ridiculus!.Version: 8.7.1

Great but...For the last year or so on multiple devices and all latest iOS the photos don’t always save even though the settings is already there. And background download of photos. Some have to be done manually In the last few weeks also the uploads of photos and videos is painfully slow even on low resolutions and I am talking on networks with 240 Mbps downloads and 90 Mbps uploads. It’s inadmissible.Version: 5.6.4

Search function does not support asian languagesPersonally, I value the stability this app offers in terms of call quality and all matters surrounding privacy (and stickers!). That being said, the search function is an absolute deal breaker for me. Having parents of asian origin who can only type in chinese, not supporting asian languages in the search function severely limits its use for me. I hardly think I am the only one having this issue, (as I see similar posts online), so I don’t see why the devs have been neglecting this issue for several years. As a mere consumer of this product one can only hope this review is seen by one of them, otherwise I’ll probably have to look elsewhere for a good messaging app..Version: 7.0.2

Slow, slow, slow!I have been using telegram for a few years, but lately it’s so slow that’s completely useless. Everything take ages to open, even with a super fast internet connection. I just can’t bother to use it anymore. The greedy bast… decide to slow down the connection to anyone that’s doesn’t pay for premium, instead on focus in give more futures to the premium users so we feel like it’s a value to upgrade! You know what telegram??? I’m not spending a single penny in you greedy fu…! Just will keeping give you 1 star and using less and less your useless app. I guess it’s going to be used at the end only by they extreme right wingers like Tommy Robinson and the illegal pornographers!.Version: 9.0.2

Huge battery drain on iOSThis app is constantly on the top of the list for battery drain on my iPhone.

Call mot working on iPadMicrophone doesn’t work on iPad during Telegram calls.Version: 8.7.1

Delay on voice callsGreat to see an app not taken over by Facebook. Two bits of feedback for improvement: 1) Voice calls have a second or so lag which makes conversations a little difficult without talking over the other caller. 2) They’re some very inappropriate / pornographic groups in the “Find People Nearby”. This would be fine if they were private, but they’re fully public for anyone to see. You don’t want children exposed to some of the images they’re sharing in public groups. Either make these swingers’ groups private or take action when they’re reported as pornographic. You’ve done nothing about the ones I’ve reported so far and that’s at least a month ago..Version: 7.1.2

All Take and No GiveSo one day I opened up Telegram and got a screen asking for my phone number. No reason, no explaination, no disclosure about whether this info would be private? Secure? Visible? Public? What did you need it for? Nothing. Zero info. I am supposed to just blindly trust you with no reason given and no explaination how it will be used or Shared. I can't progress without giving the number and no option to see explaination, purpose or privacy statement. So, Uninstall. Bye..Version: 7.2

Find people nearby and nearby groups???Ok why??? I love telegram’s interface, the app is smooth. However, what I am going to voice out about is their “Find People Nearby” and “Nearby Groups” feature. There really is no need for that when this app was about private messaging. “. Fast. Secure. Powerful” and yet they add those two features that that contradict. What do I find on these features that’s displeasing? A bunch of random nasty people with nasty profile pictures. Moving on to Nearby Groups, like “m4m”, “m4w”, “taboo”..what is this, a throwback of Craigslist lol. Not enough moderation from Telegram on these features. Finally and most importantly, what happens when a child/ underage teen creates a Telegram account??? What then when they’re exposed to these things. Not good, just remove both things and your app is solid..Version: 7.9.2

Need to access group threads from home screen 3D Touch and favourites menu on share sheetI'd like to be able to access group threads from favourites on share sheet and the home screen 3D Touch widget. I use group threads more often than the individual people I'm offered in frequently used contacts. It should really be most commonly used threads not just individuals.Version: 5.12.2

So much for the "Secure" platformI have been using Telegram for a few years now, and I have been trouble free for quite some time... fast forward to last week when my username changed, and I was removed from all my groupchats... someone was accessing my account from the other side of the country and I blocked their access twice before the app forced me to make another account :( ok, so I decided to contact support not only on the app but by email and I have yet to receive even a confirmation message that we have received your complaint... avoid this unstable platform at all costs 😤☹️.Version: 6.2.1

IPad mini4 update can’t openIPad mini4 update can’t open.Version: 5.6.3

BuggyOverall in theory the messenger is great. However I got really tired of some issues. There is this annoying bug, that when you type a message and in the middle of it you press dictation key it will move the cursor couple of spaces to the right and you can’t erase this blank space unless deleting whole message. Also an app crashes frequently especially in the big group chats, if you scroll up couple of pages of messages. Also sometimes the place in which you type your message falls behind the keyboard, so you can’t see what you type. And lastly, I am completely indifferent if some people in my contacts started using telegram, I would like to have an option to stop those notifications and stop opening new chat window with those people. It would all be forgivable, if those bugs were new, however they are as old as an app and nobody addressed them for many years. I always use the newest version of devices and software, so problems can’t be on me..Version: 4.5

Claims to value your privacy, requires a phone number 🤡Honestly a joke. If telegram really valued your privacy, they wouldn’t force you to give up your personal information. Prime example of talking the talk without walking the walk.Version: 8.8.1

Video callingIn this day and age video calling is a must with every app such as Telegram, and lack of it unnecessarily opens the door for the competition. Despite my desire to solely use Telegram to connect with friends & family all over the world, I’m having to use other apps, because of the lack of this feature in this app, and I’m sure this is the case for most of its other users. I’d give this app 4 stars if it had the video calling feature, and 5 if it wasn’t for some other malfunctions I come across every now and then, such as, all of a sudden losing all my communications with a contact from the beginning till a random date, or altogether till the present! This has happened to me several times with different contacts, so I highly recommend backing your communications up if they’re important to you. I really hope, and strongly suggest that the developers add the video calling feature ASAP. Thank you for all your efforts for providing the public with a great communication tool! 🙏🌹.Version: 5.12.2

One of the worst social media apps I’ve ever usedI would not recommend this App to anyone! I need help I can’t get any. They say that they’ll get back to you but they never do.

Chats last read not syncingHi 👋 I’ve been a long term and now paid user of telegram and it’s integral to the communities I’m in. Very recently in the past 2 weeks the chats I’m apart of do not track where I had last read and it’s creating chaos in my work flows and consumption of the app. I have app background refresh on and many other recommended settings plus have not had this issue until recently without changing anything in terms of my hardware but I have updated my iOS software so likely an issue in there? Please review and hopefully you can get the chats to track last read locations again 🙏thanks.Version: 9.0.2

Whatsapp-esqueNot exactly original with the layout but I really like the simplicity and have enjoyed the gamebots features as well. The only thing Telegram lacks compared to whatsapp is the ‘Delivered’ & ‘Read’ report - which to me is IMPORTANT especially in groups to know which members have read the announcements I send and which ones haven’t and therefore have to be followed up. So please add those features and I’ll come back to give a 5star review, thanks.Version: 4.4

The badge on the iOS icon doesn’t seem to update sometimes and other times says ‘1’ when in fact there are say 7 messages. The self destruct timer on long running chats is not self destructing at all. Please bring back the previous version..Version: 5.0.11

Speaker is not working after last updateSpeaker is not working after last update during the voice call on iPhone. Call has to be restarted a few times in order to make speaker work again! Please fix this issue!.Version: 8.7.1

Weird contacts issueThis works very similarly to WhatsApp, which is no bad thing, but why on earth does it add contacts whom I’ve previously deleted? That makes no sense at all. What makes this even more frustrating odds that the app doesn’t tell you this in advance and doesn’t make it clear (even after a Google search) how to remove this. Honestly, I would delete this app for this issue but I am on a couple of channels which I can’t leave..Version: 8.6
