Users can synchronize their conversations on all these devices and have quick access to them regardless of their location.

The desktop version of Telegram and the web application offer 2 alternative platforms, different from mobile applications. By using these platforms, the user gains access to all the functions and features of Telegram. For example, you can attach files up to 1.5 GB to messages, similar to email.

For users who prefer to use Telegram as a news channel, there is an option to disable notifications. News will be received, but without sound alerts every 3 minutes.

The only drawback of the messenger is its limited use in some countries, but this is fixable. Telegram's popularity is growing and supported by various scandals related to the blocking and use of this application by famous individuals.
