Media problemAfter update I don’t have access to shared media! This version sucks!.Version: 5.15

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

Turn off new contact notificationRidiculous , every time a new contact joins I get a notification AND a new chat. This must be turned off! Super annoying. Change this and I give five stars.Version: 7.3.1

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

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

IconsBring back the icons!!! They are not communicative at all!! Feels weird!.Version: 5.15

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

Treat Us Like Adults on iOSWhy block adult channels?.Version: 6.2.1

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

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

The audio doesn’t work with a lock screen.Just three days ago the audio was available for listening with the lock screen. However today when I have turned on the audio in chat it has been stopped when the screen has locked..Version: 4.9.2

Black screenThis is a first for me, but just before yesterday the app was working perfectly, but just yesterday the app suddenly stopped working. It just gave me a black screen, offloading, rebooting, and even updating did nothing to get out of it..Version: 7.6.1

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

Hateful photos , e.g : religious photos should not addedNot anyone like to disrespect your own religion.Version: 4.7.1

Not safer than Whatsapp....Do your research, Telegram is not better than Whatsapp when it comes to privacy and security. Don’t be fooled by Telegram’s marketing on Twitter. Signal is far better.Version: 7.3.1

BackupWe need backup for our chats.Version: 4.7

FrustratingIt takes ages to connect and when it connects at last it dies immediately..Version: 7.5.1

It’s great but there is spam texts sometimesI got a spam text on telegram and luckily it was nothing inappropriate or bad but I deleted it still . I gave you guys a three star rating because of the risk of Spam texts or links but there are no bugs in the app and I liked it other than the spam texts . I had to delete telegram also because of the risk of spam texts or links . I would wish you guys could change that so I could redownload it . Thanks ..Version: 6.2.1

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

Bad Privacy and SecurityThere’s no way to prevent the people in your contacts from knowing that you have this app. There’s no way to be anonymous..Version: 6.0.1

PrivacyThey say your data is never disclosed, but without end to end encryption of *all data* *on* by default, that means that they and anyone else who sends them a legal request actually can access this data. They need to be less misleading in their marketing copy..Version: 7.3.1

Pedo paradiseA platform made perfectly catered to facilitate the illegal actions of pedophiles and predators. Telegram is capitalizing on the most vile form of evil in existence..Version: 7.2.1

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

App used by human traffic sex videos, owners need to step in and help stop.Owners of app need to stop the use of chat rooms for sex human traffic videos and give information that leads to arrest and disruption of criminals and their activities..Version: 7.1.2

Nth room- we need your cooperationNth room- We need your cooperation.Version: 5.15.2

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

Nice but badIt has features way beyond WhatsApp. BUT It’s not end to end encrypted by default. Groups are not encrypted..Version: 7.3.1

1 mobile numbers mapped to 2 users. Personal Information data breachHello Team, I want you to look into this urgently. I registered as a new user on Telegram using my mobile number, when I logged in I was able to see chats, images, videos and other personal information of another person. This is a data privacy issue and Telegram should be fined for this. I can see the other mobile device ID, their IP address and other session details. You have a major security flaw, would not recommend this app to anyone..Version: 6.0.1

ArtBad technical support ! Bad quality Audio calls .. they can limited your account without any reason and would never corrected that again .. “signal” is the best messenger ever.Version: 7.6.2

Hidden names !Names disappeared and I started to see the numbers only as they are not registered !.Version: 2.6

IOS Badges and more, brokenSeems more harm was done that good in this latest upgrade. Settings such as sounds associated with a contact seemed to all get changed and messed up. 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

Nice app, but drain the battery!!!It’s a really good app, better than other instant message apps, but the battery is drained too quick, also still not able to pin more than 5 chats, and can’t add more than 3 accounts on the app, any update for those issues? There’s an arrow to get to the last messages, but if l got a long term chat and want to go to the first message that l wrote, l can’t get up in one go, I found this a bit annoying, put an arrow to go to the first message, sometimes it’s months back, and is too long to go back, you just introduced the new video call, it’s nice, but when we can have a group one? Thanks..Version: 7.0.2

It’s gone worst nowI have been using telegram such long time . Never had problem and since today morning it’s keep showing me that it’s updating but wasn’t doing anything at all . I had to delete the whole app and redownload but after then when I tried again after giving my number to login back it’s keep saying no internet connection but I have full 3G and full WiFi but still says same thing . Almost fed up after trying for 2 hours . I might stop using this . For developers - pls fix this issue if not people might start deleting this app ..Version: 4.9.1

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

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

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

“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

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

Stoped working ?Was working perfectly until today, keeps saying I have no internet connection when I do as I can search the internet and use it as normal but the app doesn’t recognise I have internet. Wouldn’t let me send messages , deleted the app and re installed it , same thing happened..Version: 4.8.1

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

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

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

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

No, you don't need my phone number.No, you don't need my phone number..Version: 3.1.2

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

Organize chatsWould be good if you could organize the chats by moving them up and down.Version: 7.6.1

Needs fixesThere’s a lot to love about Telegram. The animated stickers and their integration with emojis is amazing. What I don’t love is the bugs and lack of support channels. The Watch app doesn’t let you reply — as in the reply button does nothing. Video calls are super buggy. Oftentimes one person is upside down. If you have chat groups, you can no longer swipe on a chat for options this there is no way to archive a chat! It has been quite a few updates where none of these issues have been addressed so....Version: 7.3.1

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

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

Could be betterHi, This is really one of the best social app i have ever used, there is one issue about notifications, i have a group and i convert it to super one, now i have 320 members, all the admins including me can’t receive any notification at all till i or them open the group then all the new messages will appears , this is actually not good for us as admins so this means i should open the chat to see if there is someone write something!! I tried to mute the group then unmute it, also try to reset all settings in iPhone, also I tried another telegram apps in App store, same issue still exist for all the admins. BTW some of the admins have their own groups and they told me we don’t have issues in other groups that we created it or we joined it..Version: 4.7.1

Starting to Censor I seeYep. Didn’t take long to ruin an otherwise good idea. Telegram has been “influenced” to censor the infamous attorney Lin Wood, for making “illegal” comments. Illegal? Lin Wood? Seriously? I know he’s not Jesus and is prone to error, but, my God! You actually have the balls - and stupidity - to accuse a lawyer who specializes in defamation of not knowing where the line is drawn on this particular subject. You better change your tune quickly or be prepared to face actual litigation in the near future. I use your service instead of Twitter or Facebook precisely to avoid dealing with stupid crap like this. Signal here I come. Update: I’m adding a star ⭐️ (2 —> 3) since you decided to let Mr. Wood out of jail. But now you’re on probation. Behave yourself and I might remember to add another one..Version: 7.6.1

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

My account deletedI have been using this every day since September, and really liked it. I was on yesterday afternoon, and a couple hours later it was deleted. Says account deleted last time seen a long time ago. Anyway, not impressed, when I know I did nothing to delete it.Version: 5.12.2

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

It crashes all the timeI experience many times that whenever I try to scroll down and up to read messages it freezes,I can only press the arrow down button to read the last message but in between I cannot. So I have either delete the app or restart my phone..Version: 6.2.1

Nth room- we need your cooperationNth room - We need your cooperation Child sexual abuse, exploitation happened in telegram..Version: 5.15.2

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

People can add you to groups without your consent!It is so annoying that people can add you to a group without your consent and you even don’t know who that person is! I suggest that if someone wants to invite you to a group they should send you an invitation instead of adding you without your consent..Version: 5.14

Bluetooth Typing GlitchI love telegram and have used it for years, but one problem that was been very annoying for the last 6-12 months since I have really started to use it on the iPad is that while typing in Telegram on a Bluetooth keyboard or Apple keyboard, the typing is very laggy and buggy. After a sentence or two is typed, it really starts to slow down and also makes more typing errors. It’s like it cant keep up. I was hoping an update would solve this, but many updates have gone through and nothing. I do not have this issue on any other app besides Telegram. It almost makes it not worth it to even type a message out on Telegram it is so bad. Please address Telegram! This should be a simple fix! Telegram is great besides this and fits all of what I want in a messaging app!.Version: 5.14.1

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

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

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

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

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

Need to add status/stories option.Would love to see telegram add a 24 hr stories feature, other then that good communication app..Version: 7.3.1

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

BanMy phone number got banned even I used it for one week only....!!!.Version: 5.14

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

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

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

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

Not secureThis app is not as secure as they claim..Version: 7.3.1

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

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

New UpdateI’ve been an avid user of Telegram for quite some years now and it has proven to be a very reliable and easy to use messaging service. However, in its most recent update, issues arising around some of my chat history being erased has left me in a state of aggravation. Amidst this issue, some of my favourite sticker sets are nowhere to be seen within my sticker set collection. I am appalled with this update and would love to see an update, enlightening Telegram once again to the previously wonderful application..Version: 5.6

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

Voice-over accessibilityDear sir/madam, Thank you for your recent updates which supporting voice-over feature but there are still more to do with the voice-over, the folders and stickers are not accessible yet, when I try to create a folder it’s not easy and not accessible with voice-over yet. I hope that you improve telegram messenger and to be fully accessible with voice-over. There is a large community of voice-over users want to move from WhatsApp to telegram messenger but still not accessible with voice-over that’s why we are waiting for improvement for telegram messenger..Version: 7.4.2

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

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

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

Deleted due to privacy concerns and battery drainFor an app that touts privacy it does one thing that contradicts this claim - it is impossible to register an account without verifying your phone number. There is one reason and one reason only an app would need to insist on knowing your phone number - ability to identify you in real world. Why does an app that touts total privacy need to identify you in real world? What do they do with this information? Constantly runs in background, even when background refresh is turned off for this app, which is clear in the battery logs. A few minutes every hour, but causing quite a lot of battery drain. What is it doing that requires that much CPU or comms while I am not using it?.Version: 7.4.2

ScamIt gives your number out to people you don’t know.Version: 7.6.2

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

Chat refreshes way toooo fast on ipad versionI really like the telegram app. Unfortunately I use a bunch of different group chats. The app refreshes so fast that I cannot click on the message fast enough. I have to hit edit and then I can maybe scroll down to see it - often not. I think that when you click on the message icon it should automatically put those messages at the very top and hold them there until they are viewed. Until this is done I cannot give it more stars because it is very aggravating to try to see who messaged me. Sometimes I have to go on the web version on my ipad but there I cannot see the line that has the message icon. It doesn’t scroll down far enough. So then I have to go on the computer to the web version there. There everything works much better. Please make these improvements!! Thanks..Version: 4.7.1

Improvements neededIt’s a great alternative to whats app but needs some improvements for when you create a group chat: - you can’t see who actually send the message into the group chat. It just comes up as a message but doesn’t show who sent it - you can’t tap on a message that you send in and see who from the group received and read it These are both features in whats app and definitely need to be added.Version: 7.3.1

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

Telegram hackedWas really happy with Telegram until I had a notification that my account had been accessed from Lagos Nigeria. I live it Canada so i set up password authentication but have been unable to access since and no support from company. Someone is now soliciting my contacts under my name..Version: 7.6.2

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

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

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

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

Are you a bystander?Provide the Korean police ALL the Nth Room users' info. If not, Telegram is a bystander of sexual offenses against children.Version: 5.15.2

Constantly says “connecting” and “updating”I use this app all the time but I’m really sick and tired of having to switch to other apps to get in touch with people. It always says there’s no internet connection, even when there is. I can use other apps fine. I switch between mobile data and WiFi, it still says no connection. Switch my phone off and on again, no connection. I’ve reinstalled the app, still no connection. But it can’t be my phone because every other app that requires the use of the internet works. I’m so angry and disappointed..Version: 4.8.1

Can't useEntered all info, but never received code to finalize my access. Emailed at least 3 times, never heard back. Very disappointed. Unable to use app due to code failure.Version: 7.6.2

Huge battery drain on iOSThis app is constantly on the top of the list for battery drain on my iPhone. Even with background refresh turned off, this app constantly drains ~30% of my battery with little to no usage. This seems to be about 6x more than other messaging apps that I have installed..Version: 7.3.1

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

Works well but spam system is brokenTelegram is for the most part amazing but has some game breaking flaws. For example, I am an admin of a major TG group (over 50k members) and somehow my account has been flagged for sending spam even though I have never sent an unsolicited message ever. The 'spam bot' where you appeal this is terrible and it seems once an account is flagged, there's no option whatsoever for resolution. It's a shame, TG is amazing and I'd happily pay for the service but when they randomly flag as spam and I can't post in any public groups and have no recourse then it's not useful and open to abuse. Once this issue is fixed, I'll happily give TG the 5 stars it rightfully deserves.Version: 5.0.17

Take actionFrom last year to recently, telegram was used to sexually abuse numerous minors and women in South Korea. This case is called the “Nth room”. We need your cooperation to catch all the criminals who took part in this terrible crime. Please cooperate with the Korean police when they demand the information of these criminals. Please help us to find the perpetrators of this heinous crime, who must be punished to the fullest extent of the law..Version: 5.15.2

Problem with Telegram chat linksHello I got a problem that if anyone would share a link of their Telegram link, it will not open. The link will open in a safari page and it will stay there waiting and nothing happens. I waited so many times for hours and nothing happens. Can I know what’s the problem?.Version: 7.0.1

Why should I report an issue with Telegram Messenger?

  1. Pulling issues faced by users like you is a good way to draw attention of Telegram Messenger to your problem using the strength of crowds.
  2. We have developed a system that will try to get in touch with a company once an issue is reported and with lots of issues reported, companies will definitely listen.
  3. Importantly, customers can learn from other customers in case the issue is a common problem that has been solved before.
  4. If you are a Telegram Messenger customer and are running into a problem, appsupports.co might not be the fastest and most effective way for you to solve the problem but at least you can warn others off using Telegram Messenger.

Is Telegram Messenger not working?
