    • Microsoft is the opposite of user freedom Guest • Jun 2017 • 32 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Missing features (eg. proper message history, ability to message offline users, images on equal status to text) taken for granted in Telegram. Guest • Dec 2017 • 5 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Missing a huge amount of features, APIs, bot platforms, ad hoc channels, and all of the privacy. Guest • Feb 2018 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Hangouts lacks most of the administrative-type functionality that Telegram has. Guest • Dec 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Hangouts is not end-to-end encrypted. Google, who own it, make money by spying on users (every bit of info they can get) and selling it to advertisers. That's appalling. Telegram is not perfect but it is end-to-end encrypted, which means that only the intended recipient can read your messages - not the case with Hangouts. Google can see everything, and others can force them to give that info up (e.g. by subpoena). JohnFastmanMay 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • it is not hosted virtually... you cannot access data once it got downloaded on other devices later... plus very limited on sizes and what can be uploaded... tons of limits on so much... for true user of telegram, whatsapp fail to compete.... imagine having group, in telegram, the new members can see the old messages... man way not same level even if same category Guest • Jan 2017 • 11 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Whatsapp is the 386 of instant messaging. Telegram receives fresh new features every month, so their streets are increasingly far away Guest • Jun 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • Nasty, closed-sourced, privacy-invading app by a company whose business model is based on selling private user data to the highest bidder. Stay away if you value your online privacy and security (where will your data be in 20 years and how could it be used against you then?). Telegram, Signal and Wire are hugely preferable because they use encryption. JohnFastmanMay 2018 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • This is in my opinion the absolut number one if you are looking for privacy. egamiMar 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Proper end-to-end encryption makes Threema a good private way to communicate. But not as good as open source alternatives like Signal, for which you can check the source code. But Threema is way better than Facebook Messenger or 'Allo, which come from privacy-destroying companies. JohnFastmanMay 2018 Disagree   Agree
