Telegram today released its desktop app to the Windows Store. The app is currently available for download in the Windows Store. The app is not a UWP app since the app uses Microsoft’s Desktop App Convertor Tool (Win32 app).

The new Desktop application brings a lot of new features to the Windows users on PC and Tablets. The app is the fastest messaging app and it provides the best security for messages since the chats are heavily encrypted. The chats in the Telegram application sync across all devices which makes it easier for users to access their secured data along with the message history which is stored for free in Telegram Cloud.

With the Telegram applications users can form Large chat groups of upto 200 members, quickly share large videos, Documents like .doc,.zip etc., and also users can send unlimited photos. Users also now have the option to Send MP4/MOV Files as videos which play right inside the Telegram app. You can also click on the date in any chat to quickly jump to messages from a specific day. The team has also provided the option to change the Phone number in the Settings section apart from Editing options like Last Seen Time, Blocked users list etc.

By downloading the Telegram Desktop application users will be able to get automatic updates and hence they need not manually check for the app update availability. The Desktop app also uses some of the Windows 10 API’s like live tiles, Cortana which is a good addition to the application for Windows users on PC and Tablets.

The Telegram Team recently updated their Windows Phone app with UI changes on line of Windows 10 like interactive notifications and more. We hope the team releases a UWP Windows 10 app in the Store sooner than later.

You can download the Telegram Desktop app from the Windows Store link. Do let us know your first impressions after using the application in the comments section below.
