Telegram
Messaging client

Warning: While this build is based on a pure-floss fork, original upstream has not published the sourcecode for recent vesions.

Client for the Telegram messaging platform. Chat with friends, start group chats and share all kinds of content. All of your messages and conversations are stored in Telegram's cloud.

The messaging platform is aimed at mobile devices, but desktop and web clients exist as well.

Several proprietary parts were removed from the original Telegram client, including Google Play Services for the location services and HockeySDK for self-updates. Push notifications through Google Cloud Messaging and the automatic SMS receiving features were also removed.

Anti-Feature: Non-Free Network, since the servers run proprietary software.

The official source code of the app contains binary blobs, so this tracks a fork which builds those from source. Hence, versions might become available with a certain lag.
