Reasons why you should use Telegram instead of WhatsApp
Below is why Telegram is better than WhatsApp;
1. Unlimited server storage
Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram has unlimited storage for messages. You need not worry about backup since data is stored on their cloud with seamless sync. So, you can log out or in to your account even from other devices without losing your data.
2. Media compression
You can choose whether or not to compress image and video before send.
3. Group member capacity
A Telegram group allows up to 20,000 members, while WhatsApp group normal capacity is 257. You can set telegram group to allow members who are not admin to add other people to the group.
4. Username feature
You can chat with anyone on Telegram if you know their user name (@xyz). You don’t have to worry about their contact number. This ensures the privacy of the user’s contact number.
A Telegram channel is like a group, only that it allows unlimited number of members, but only admin can send messages, while other members view the posts..
6. Secret chat
Telegram allows secret chat. This chat is end to end encrypted where you can set self time. All the messages will be deleted automatically when the time expired.
This is a robot or program that can perform a different task. For example; if you have a group, you can set a bot to help you manage the group, so even when you are offline, bot will manage the group.
There are different bots, the popular bots are anti-url bot, Image bot, sticker bot, gif bot, etc.
9. You can send any file
Telegram allows users to send any file. But WhatsApp allow only three types (video, images & document) which is not cool for advanced users.
10. Multiple Sessions
Telegram allows users to login to their account from multiple devices and will receive messages on all the devices.
