Windows 10 Telegram app updates with new features and a fresh look

The official Telegram desktop app has updated to version 1.0. This latest version of the chat app brings with it a new design aesthetic, new animations, and custom themes.

Transitions between tasks are now much smoother and the entire app in general looks much more refined than it did before. Something that’s rather nice is the fact that any user can create their own custom themes for Telegram for free. While, the Telegram app is still a traditional desktop app and not designed in the newer Universal Windows Platform app format, it’s still rather solid.

Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s super-fast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any number of your phones, tablets or computers.

With Telegram, you can send messages, photos, videos and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc), as well as create groups for up to 5000 people or channels for broadcasting to unlimited audiences. You can write to your phone contacts and find people by their usernames. As a result, Telegram is like SMS and email combined — and can take care of all your personal or business messaging needs.
