Telegram is the 10th most popular social network in the world with over 500 million active users. It combines instant messaging (similar to WhatsApp) and channels for broadcasting content (similar to Instagram).

❗️Please note that Telegram App for Android does not support the live streaming feature. For the best experience, we recommend using the Telegram desktop app.
