In the chart you can see the reported outages and errors of Telegram. If Telegram isn’t working for you, or you’re experiencing errors that are making the service essentially unusable, use the button above the chart to let others know they’re not alone.

Then, if you have a specific problem, let us know in the comments at the bottom of the page. Other users who may have also encountered the problem and know what’s behind it can help.

Reporting services that aren’t working also helps other users who know that the fault isn’t with their device, so they don’t have to try to fix it by turning off other apps or changing various settings.

Quickly check the availability of telegram.org

Here you can check the availability of “https://telegram.org/”, the official Telegram app website.

The check will be successful if we can connect to the site after clicking the button and it loads within a few seconds. If the site returns an error or the connection takes too long, the check will fail.

Please note that we are only checking the functioning and loading of the website itself, not the mobile apps on which Telegram primarily runs. We don’t check for other features like whether you can send/receive messages or anything else.

So if you encounter any bugs on an otherwise functional site, please let us know about it using the button at the top of this page, and you can describe the bug in more detail in the comments below.

It should also be noted that checking the Telegram.org site itself isn’t exactly the most convenient way to find out that something isn’t working, as typically outages are related to a feature in the application, not a completely crashed site or a broken login page.

Thus, it’s better to monitor other users’ reported outages and errors, as well as the responses in the comments, which are more likely to show that the errors happened somewhere on Telegram’s end, and thus the fault is not with your device.

Telegram app download links

Telegram works on basically all major platforms, i.e. Windows or Linux PCs, macOS, as well as Android or iOS phones and tablets (iPhone/iPad). Or simply in the web version without downloading, where you just need to link the app to an existing installation using a QR code.

You can find all the download links directly on the official website or here, where you just choose which device you use:

How to fix potential problems with Telegram

Telegram doesn’t crash very often, but it does happen now and then. Let’s look at a few possible reasons and solutions.

Changes in the network

Some apps may stop working properly when you change the way you connect to the internet (for example, changing from mobile data to wi-fi or vice versa, or changing from one wi-fi network to another).

Telegram typically doesn’t have a problem with this and everything continues to work, but if the app stopped working the moment you changed networks, this may be the cause.

The easy solution is to restart the app.

The Telegram app is stuck

Some program jams happen, and it’s pretty normal. The ideal is to turn the app off and on. If it’s a more fundamental crash, you may need to restart the entire device.

Not at work or on public wi-fi?

Public or wi-fi networks at work, as well as work computers, can block various apps or sites. Typically these are social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, but of course they can also be apps like Snapchat that function primarily for communication.

The solution then is to use your own device and your own internet connection, typically your own phone with mobile data.

Telegram just crashed and we need to wait for a fix

If nothing has helped, and especially if you see in the graph of reported outages at the top of the page that other users are experiencing outages as well, it’s probably an outage directly on Telegram’s side.

In practice, this means that there’s not much we can do about the problem, and we’ll have to wait for a resolution, which can typically take on the order of hours.

For more information, here are also links to Telegram itself and all of its official social profiles where you can find out more information.

Telegram on Twitter

Here you can see Telegram’s support on its official Twitter profile. Known problems and outages are usually posted there, so they are in the process of being fixed:

Alternatives for Telegram

While Telegram is a fairly common chat application at first glance, its main domain is the security of all conversations. This is encrypted end-to-end, so that only the sender and recipient can read the messages, no one else, not even Telegram itself. That this is indeed the case is ensured by open-source code that anyone can read and check, and therefore verify that the application works as it should.

Other chat apps are moving to this encryption, but they are not open-source, so there is always the question of whether there are any backdoors.

That’s why we’re mainly listing apps that you can use as a way to communicate, but aren’t as robust in terms of pure security and encryption, or you need to trust the creators.

Messenger

Messenger is a chat application under Facebook. It works as a standalone app on mobiles and tablets, and you can use Messenger.com or Facebook.com directly in the web version.

It is one of the most used apps for sending messages, photos, gifs, videos or audio recordings.

For basic communication, it is more than enough. All you need is a Facebook account.

WhatsApp

WhatsApp also belongs to Facebook and it’s the most used chat app in the world. Accounts work on a phone number level, but you can also download a PC app and link that to your phone.

WhatsApp offers basically everything you could want from a chat app, but it is mainly aimed at communicating with individuals or smaller groups, i.e. not as a community app.

Viber

Viber is another app you can use for chatting. You can run it on Android phones and tablets, iOS, Huawei phones or Windows PCs.

Skype

Skype is owned by Microsoft and is great for using voice or video calls.

You can download Skype to your PC and all slightly more modern smartphones.
