WhatsApp has been the most widely used free messaging app for a long time. With no competitors in the market, its user base has been growing rapidly but the worthiest competitor of WhatsApp has now crossed 500 million downloads. And yes, its Telegram. Like WhatsApp, Telegram too is a free messaging app but it has many more features. But WhatsApp due to its minimalistic interface it still is people’s favourite.
Tech-savvy people like Telegram a lot more because it gives a variety of options. Telegram, with its unique feature to act as a search engine definitely give it an upper edge. Last month, the company announced that it has crossed a user base of more than 400 million people and in just a month, the number rose to 500 million.
