People need to switch to Telegram. WhatsApp is clunky garbage. Telegram has the most wonderful chatting experience I've ever seen in my entire life and I've been in this business for a long time.

REAL clients for all your platforms. None of this proxying through your phone bulls**t. And the group chats work really well.

Dump WhatsApp and tell your friends to do it too. Also, Facebook owns WhatsApp, it's only a matter of time before they kill it anyway and roll it into FB Messenger.

Tried Telegram, it is better but deleted since no one I know uses it.

That would be nice. Maybe we will see one with WatchOS2, since it'll probably need to be a native app. Though with the fact it took them a year to do the voice calling, after they announced it, I don't hold my breath....
They are the slowest devs ever - whatever is released in September in the newest iOS you're lucky to see implemented in Whatsapp by Dec/Jan.

this thread proves people are likely being paid to promote Telegram. no sane person shows hate for a product and love for another in the same post. Also if you notice it comes down to since facebook bought them. did facebook eat your lunch?
