Telegram is a cloud-based synchronized messaging app with a focus on speed and security. It's superfast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time - Android, iOS, WP, Firefox, Chrome, Web Browser, Mac, Linux, and Windows desktop (this package) - your messages sync seamlessly across any of your phones, tablets or computers.

With Telegram, you can send messages, photos, videos and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc) to people who are in your phone contacts and have Telegram. You can also create groups for up to 200 people or send broadcasts to up to 100 contacts. As a result, Telegram is like SMS and email combined - and can take care of all your personal or business messaging needs.




To install Telegram, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install telegram

To upgrade Telegram, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
