Telegram Reaches Unbelievable Number of One Billion Downloads

Pavel Durov's brainchild overcomes more and more obstacles, reaching unbelievable heights. The voices of skeptics, who talked about Telegram's inarticulateness, are long in the past. Today, thanks to its client-oriented and user-friendly features, the messenger is firmly at the top.

Facebook's intermittent problems and WhatsApp's new user agreement have strengthened Telegram's already good growth momentum. As of today, the messenger is still far behind the American WhatsApp, which has been downloaded 5 billion times on Google Play alone, but has a serious lead over its closest competitors. Even TikTok was left behind, unable to resist the pressure. By the way, the very popular network VKontakte has only 100 thousand downloads.
