Telegram Alternatives for Java

Telegram is not available for Java but there are a few alternatives with similar functionality. The best Java alternative is Matrix.org, which is both free and Open Source. If that doesn't work for you, our users have ranked more than 100 alternatives to Telegram, but unfortunately only two of them are available for Java. If you can't find an alternative you can try to remove all filters.

Telegram alternatives are mainly Group Chat Apps but may also be Encrypted Chat Apps or Instant Messengers. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Telegram.
