Love it

Without a single doubt, the Whatsapp Messenger is the best! I have been using it every single day for the last three years. It's free, easy to use and understand. Why waste money on texting when you can do it for free?

It helps me stay in contact with my partner, my family, and friends. It's amazing.

Whatsapp!

I actually have not heard about Telegram Messenger, and WhatsApp messenger is more popular in my country and among my friends, hence using WhatsApp is easier for me to contact my family and friends, even for those in overseas.

I also like that there is a desktop and web version where we can access the chat with our computer, as I always prefer to use my keyboard to type, rather than using the phone.

This is my first choice in messenger at this moment.

WhatsApp

I have found the whatsapp to be more useful. And it seems to have a lot of better content. And you can see that some of the time it can be harder to work with the messengers. And whatsapp seems to be the one that makes things a bit easier in that context.

Popular.

I prefer using the WhatsApp messenger as it is very popular in the place that I am staying. One thing about social network is that you've got to use the one that is being used by many of the people that you know in that area. So, I pick WhatsApp for that reason since it is really okay for me. There are many things that I have gained frok being on WhatsApp as well.

Having used Facebook chat messenger, Twitter messenger, 2go messenger, yahoo messenger, Badoo messenger, Telegram messenger and a lot more but with all my experience in using all of them, Whatsapp messenger happens to be my favorite among them all.

Exactly. I have the same feeling about the use of Whatsapp messenger more than any other chat messenger. I feel comfortable using it, so much that I hardly remember that other chat messenger exist. When I'm on Facebook messenger, I will always port the person I'm chatting with there to whatsapp messenger.

Simple and easy to use

I've used Whatsapp before and find it to be a simple way of communicating with people. The fact that it's a free app as well that works so efficiently is a nice bonus.

I'm used to it.

As much as I want to use other apps, I can't seem to let go of WhatsApp because it has been very useful for me ever since. I like WhatsApp because it's easy to use and has a lot of functionalities. No wonder it's one of the most popular messaging app in China.

WhatsApp: delete messages and real-time location

WhatsApp won long-awaited functions in October. Last Tuesday (31), the ability to delete a message already sent to the recipient has reached all users of the messenger. Already the new real-time location sharing, which lets friends see where you live, has generated controversy and a host of privacy concerns.

In addition, it has brought you several tips that can improve your use of the application, such as the ability to read conversations without showing online status, and even transcribe voice messages. See, below, everything that went on in WhatsApp in recent weeks.

You are truly a good user of Whatsapp because you seem to know exactly all the new features that comes with the latest version of the chat messenger unlike what it used to be when it was launched. This feature of being able to delete an already sent message seems very good in my opinion because it gives room to correct and resend your message in another way. I like that very much.

I don't realy use whatsapp too much, because most people in my country use Viber and it's a better app for me, but I've used Telegram and it has some incognito features that are quite useful if you wanna lead converastions that you don't want to be saved.

Have been using Whatsapp for about 4 years, and due to the fact that is super popular here, you can count on it for any kind of calls and messages. Telegram just got it about 6 months ago, and it works fine, but not all my friends have it. Telegram takes less space on your phone's memory, but so far I can't find how to make calls with it. Whatsapp asks you to update it every 2 months, and it takes quite some space on memory, so if my friends could have Telegram, I think I will choose it instead of Whatsapp.

I got introduced to Telegram messenger when I was still into ponzi networking online business. The first time I heard about the messenger, I wasn't so pushed to download it but over a period of time, I decided to give it a trial, and I must confess that it's a good one too. It's is even more secured when you create a group chat in the messenger. Only the group Administrators can adjust the settings, icon and name, unlike in Whatsapp where members can change things at will.

Telegram on mobile devices are good very well, I know that because I have used it for years now and I have never had any issues with using it. The only problem I would say that I have using Telegram on my mobile device is as a result of having only few friends that are using the messenger application as well. So, I have less people to communicate with it.

My primary purpose for joining telegram was to join the telegram groups as asked by the employer on a micro job site. I never installed Telegram app on my phone because I do not have any intention of using telegram for personal communication. find facebook messenger more handy when I want to voice chat, video chat or simply text chat.

Telegram isn't new, the problem is that it wasn't advertised the way Whatsapp was, and it gave it less popularity than what Whatsapp got. This is why we see more people using Whatsapp rather Telegram. If people see and know about Telegram messenger like they knew about Whatsapp, I'm sure they will switch over to Telegram with ease.

I disagree. If telegram really is a good app than WhatsApp, then it should find its way to be known by the other user. If a certain apps makes you use with ease i will be spread out through the net and will be famous.

Whatsapp is the most convenient way to communicate with friends and family. It's also a great communication apparatus for companies to use in passing company memo. I find it very difficult to use Facebook messenger, I use it once in a while and I have lots of unread messages pilled up for me to attend to.

I use both Whats App and Telegram. I have used Whats App for a longer period. Whats App can be very disappointing. It is touted as being free, but this is really not true. I think if you have no wifi you will spend alot of money on it.Whats app also is not available on all phones. The constant updating is also quite annoying. Its also worse now that Facebook have acquired it and intend to make more money from it. They plan to introduce advertising on it.I have no complaints with telegram. I have more of a positive user experience with them.I especially love that you can send alot of information through them easily.I get all my magazines on a telegram group without a problem.

You have a very good point about what annoys me most in using Whatsapp. The constant updating of the application is so embarrassing to the point that I'm forced to not update until it closes the application from opening before I would be forced and left with no option of updating the application.

Aside from Facebook messenger, Whatsapp is also the best communication tool for me, I have some relatives in other country, and if there's something wrong with the messenger, this is my second option, and so far, didn't encounter any problem.

Telegram for Bitcoin mining? I haven't heard about it yet. Please, I would like to know more about the mining opportunities you have with using Telegram.

About a month ago, I joined telegram groups for ethereum and bitcoin mining program. When I reached the minimum withdrawal threshold, I sent a withdrawal request. I received a message that said "you have two accounts, therefore you cannot be paid unless you upgrade our program." I did not upgrade because upgrading fee was very high. I think the bitcoin mining programs available on telegram are scam.
Posted by vinaya on 07-09-2018

Thanks so much for sharing this your experience with Telegram Bitcoin mining. One of the major problems with all these mining programs is that inability to pay miners when they must have invested so much of their time mining the promised cryptocurrency only for them to see it's not possible getting paid. Well, with this your experience with the Telegram mining programs, I'm definitely not going to think twice about it.
Posted by Martinsx on 07-10-2018
vinaya
When I joined these mining programs, I was not much hopefull. Therefore, when I was not paid, I was not very frustrated. maybe those who paid for upgrade and never received earnings might have been really sad when the program did not send them. In my opinion, most of the mining program available through telegram are scam.
Posted by vinaya on 07-10-2018

Exactly. From what you just explained previously with your rattle with Telegram mining, it's pretty obvious that it's a scam scheme to rip off people who don't know any better about how mining scam works. I have had some experiences and ever since then I have taken proper caution with the kind of mining site or project I get into.
Posted by Martinsx on 07-11-2018

There are scammers everywhere and these scammers are using all kinds of means to scam people. In my opinion, it is not the scammer who rips people, it is their greed that rips them off. I don't think it is difficult to spot a scam program. As for these telegram based mining programs are concerned, they were offering a high rate of return. I should have been more careful

I tried telegram. Lot of spam and lot of wrong type of the people are into it. And it can be really hard for people to make use of the telegram type services. I guess we learn from our experience in that case. And do things when it's possible for us to work around. There seems to be a lot of messenger apps. But whatsapp is lot better for now. It works just fine.

Spams on Telegram chat messenger? I have never experienced that kind of problem ever since I started using Telegram. Seriously, it's just like using Whatsapp as well but the only thing is that Whatsapp is a lot more popular then Telegram. It's only when you add someone to your Telegram that they appear, the same way Whatsapp gets added using phone numbers.

I think you didn't came across some of those cryptocurrency bot. And that means you have yet to experience the spam offered by them. I have not yet seen those type of the bots on the groups. I think whatsapp is lot better at handling those type of the spam.

I haven't experienced anything of such ever since I started using Telegram chat messenger. Maybe it's because I don't use it too often unlike how I use Whatsapp chat messenger, so probably when the spam bot would come with their spam message, I wouldn't be available to receive such spam messages.

Well, I will hand it to you and agree completely that Whatsapp is absolutely user friendly in all dimensions. Anyone with just small knowledge of how to type messages and send to a particular number can be able to use Whatsapp chat messenger very easily. But on the part of the application being free, well you can download and install it for free but you get to pay on every 1-2 months intervals to update it. So, it's literally not free.

Really? do people pay to update what app because I never paid a dime since I started using whatsapp three years ago.Or do we pay through our data we use in downloading.
Posted by lovely on 07-09-2018

Exactly. Now you understand the nature of payment to using the Whatsapp messenger. Even though you are not required to pay raw cash to get the messenger application, but you do pay indirectly with your data. Data is purchased with money and giving up a sizeable amount of data to update the application every 1-2 months is a steep payment.

Yes, you are absolutely correct with that assertion on the features which Whatsapp offers its users. Personally, I love the part of being able to send files like pdf and other Microsoft documents through the chat messenger. Although, the part of sending video is limited to a specific video file size. I think its maxed to send only video that is around 10MB to 15MB.

Telegram is anonymous to some extent. And so it's possible that it is being used by those who want more anonymity. It'd be reasonable to see that some of such type of the messengers are always in use to some extent. I think lot of such whatsapp clones are out there and people do use them.
