July 19, 2020 By carolc

Since smartphones emerged, they have opened the door for an immense world of opportunities. Plenty of instant messaging apps have appeared since iPhone and Android emerged. One of these apps is Telegram.

In past decades, even centuries, orthodox communication means were completely different from current methods. In the past people used to communicate through smoke signals. Even though it was used as a form of sending messages, these smoke signals only could have few meanings. That was one of the most complicated processes you could use in the past. As the world kept turning, time kept passing by and the population kept growing. So, people needed to send longer messages to further places across the world. Lettering stemmed from this necessity.

Since communication has become a crucial part of our lives these days, several inventions of the 20th century have withstood the test of time and stayed to evolve and also to better our lifestyles. Currently, there are plenty of means and inventions like emailing, instant messaging, video conferences, long distance calls and others that have replaced older ones like the telegraph or the wired telephone.

Nowadays, from instant messaging apps like Telegram, to Social Media Platforms like Facebook or Google itself, have fixed all the communication problems that everyone had before even the internet was invented.

In this article we are going to talk about an Instant Messaging app called Telegram, and also we are going to show you some interesting functions this app has.
