      Hangouts vs Telegram
      pros, cons and recent comments
      mozdevcontrib Not encrypted. Owned by Google.

      JohnFastman 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).

      Hangouts lacks most of the administrative-type functionality that Telegram has.

      sadlyfatobguh Hangouts does not care about your privacy at all. Telegram is primarily marketed as a private communication service

      WhatsApp vs Telegram
      pros, cons and recent comments
      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

      Whatsapp is the 386 of instant messaging. Telegram receives fresh new features every month, so their streets are increasingly far away

      WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted and relies on the Signal protocol to protect the user's privacy while Telegram uses its own custom encryption algorithm, which is a big flaw in cryptography. Telegram only fully encrypts communications when starting a "secret chat", but the default conversations are not secured.

      Facebook Messenger vs Telegram
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman 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.
