HISTORY

WhatsApp was incorporated in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, both former employees of Yahoo!. Then few years after the release of Whatsapp, Facebook acquired it for the rate of $19 billion.

The telegram was launched in 2013 by brothers Nikolai and Pavel Durov, who previously founded the Russian social network VK, but had to leave the company after it was taken over by Mail.ru Group.

Telegram provides unlimited storage. Means all your text messages, images media files & documents will be saved on their cloud. You can log out and log in any number of times from any number of devices simultaneously without losing any data, you don’t need to worry about backup & restore. You can view the active sessions and see on which devices are you logged in now. 

2. Media compression

Users can choose whether to compress the image and video or send the uncompressed version.

3. Group members capacity

There are two types of groups in Telegram. They are Normal and Super Groups. A normal group can contain a maximum of 200 members, when the maximum is reached, it automatically converts into super group. A super group can contain a maximum of 5000 members which is huge! compared to Whatsapp.

4. Username feature

Through this feature, you can chat with someone with their phone numbers. This is a great feature as it protects the privacy of the people to whom we are sending messages.

5. Channels

A channel is somewhat similar to groups, which can accommodate an unlimited number of members. The creator of the channel can decide who can post and other members can view the posts.

7. Secret chat

Secret chat is a kind of chat in which one can set self-destruct timer and it also has the end-to-end encryption feature. The messages will be automatically deleted when the timer hits. It is possibly not able to hack in any way.

9. Multiple Sessions

Users of Telegram can login into multiple devices at the same time and also can receive messages on multiple devices. This feature is even in the Desktops and Laptops. It is a great and cool feature as Whatsapp does not support Multiple Sessions.

FEATURES OF WHATSAPP

1. Voice & Video Calls

Unlike Telegram Whatsapp supports both voice and video calls. If you have a strong mobile internet connection then you will get an awesome quality of calling. It takes low data usage for calling someone. So it is a very good point about Whatsapp.

Whatsapp uses end to end encryption everywhere.

So I conclude by saying that either you use Whatsapp or not, you should definitely use Telegram as one of the messengers or the one and only messenger in your devices. It’s completely fine if you’re using Whatsapp because it’s just a recommendation which i’m conveying to you through this blog.
