Telegram announced on Tuesday that it now has more than 100 million monthly active users, with more than 15 billion messages being sent through the service every day. That might not seem as impressive as WhatsApp passing the 1 billion users mark earlier this month, but keep in mind that Telegram is less than three years old. The service has been growing at a rapid pace thanks to its dedication to privacy and security, and it’s always being updated with new features to ensure that it can hold its own against the likes of Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.
Telegram has announced that it now boasts more than 100 million monthly active users, just two and a half years after the service launched. What’s more, the company is adding an impressive 350,000 users to that total every single day. Telegram has become immensely popular for its streamlined instant messaging experience that is now available on all major platforms — including desktops. It boasts all the features you would expect to see in a messaging service, and it is frequently updated with improvements and fixes. It also boasts cloud sync, so if you use multiple devices, you can access your conversations and chat history across all of them. And there’s no need to worry about that data making its way into the wrong hands, because Telegram offers end-to-end encryption that secures it. It’s no surprise the service has become so popular. Not only does it now have more than 100 million monthly users, but it is also delivering an incredible 15 billion messages every day. Those are pretty incredible numbers for a service that’s less than three years old.
