Telegram is one of the best messaging applications available today. Has its advocates and detractors, but it seems that something they are in agreement: technically okay, being the biggest downside that not everyone uses it.

Little can be done in this regard, but the truth is that Telegram also can be helpful to many things more besides to talk to your friends.

Do you think that single Telegram serves to chat? Wrong.

Who needs a Notepad bearing Telegram? Since version 3.11, it is possible to start a chat with yourself, which is an ideal place to stick all kinds of notes, fragments of text, pictures, directions, voice clips or whatever you want, always accessible from Telegram in mobile and tablet PC.

The Telegram is quite effective, with a filter to skip directly to a particular calendar date, and you can make use of hashtags for quick access to reminders, lists of purchase or anything else.

After the closure of Chrome to Phone, I appointed Telegram as the best alternative as an application to send you messages and data between your phone and your PC. Unlike other inventions such as AirDroid or Pushbullet, Telegram is free, without limitation hard to understand.

Telegram cloud is really fast, and it is my little secret to send me every day tens of screenshots, photos, videos, APK, links and anything imaginable from the mobile to the PC, and vice versa.

Telegram is rather more a day in emojis are concerned, and their emojis selector It is quite effective. On more than one occasion I have had to resort to it to add an emoji to a conversation, copy it to the Clipboard and paste it into another application to use it. It is a long process, but it is useful for example in Twitter, has no own emojis selector.

Add GIF to a chat, give contextual options menu and choose Save, o Share. In both cases it is saved as video in MP4 format, although WhatsApp lets you convert it to GIF and Facebook allows you to comment with video also.

5 mini-games

From the Telegram 3.13 version it is possible to make use of the Gaming Platform 1.0 to play to mini-games directly from the chat, alone or with your friends. And best of all is that they are lightweight and are loaded from the Internet, so do not add size to the APK’s Telegram.

To start playing you can open a chat bot @gamebot o @gamee, among others, where you will find links to different types of mini-games, classified by categories. Most of the mini-games are quite simple, but ideal to kill some time.
