The company explained the creation of two separate versions by “believing in internal competition.” “Both new clients work equally well on mobile and desktop devices” it said.
The new versions do not yet support voice and secret chats, account switching, and the photo editor. You can’t complain about spam, either.
Telegram has also released an Android app that can be installed from telegram.org bypassing the app store. This version will be updated more frequently than the version from Google Play, and it has less restrictions, the company said.
