Telegram was developed with a full encrypted source and it is one of the best goal which the founder has implemented. We all know security is one of the best features when coming online.
WhatsApp also has security but it lacks some security features like when you joined a WhatsApp group, everyone will know your number because WhatsApp be like “+234907390**** join this group”
That’s where it lacks, Telegram will rather shows your name. If the person don’t have your contact before, he/she can’t see your number but your name will be shown to everyone.
I love that particular features on Telegram which we hope WhatsApp can never have.
Bot are one of the best features on Telegram, there are thousands of bot on Telegram. You can also create a bot without coding knowledge with the help of @botfather
Telegram is an open source API instant messaging app which enables you to create your own bot with/without coding knowledge.
Bot are also used in managing group, I’m always fed up when I have a WhatsApp group then and I’m seeing some people dropping their links in my group. As admin, you can’t delete the members message for everyone but Telegram can make you delete members message for everyone.
There are some Telegram bot that helps you in deleting members links immediately they posted the link in the group chat, WhatsApp doesn’t have that awesome features.
Telegram bot can also be used for playing games, quizzes/votes, inline buttons, reactions buttons, like buttons, payments, downloading YouTube videos and so many countless features.

Let’s say I have a product for sale, how many people will order for that product in 247 members but Telegram has 200,000 group members limit.
Telegram having 200,000 members limit is good for promotion/sponsored posts, selling of products if you have any like ebooks, a lot of people will purchase your products.
