Instant Messaging – Telegram Vs Whatsapp by hogfurniture: 12:59pm On Aug 02, 2018
Instant messaging (IM) technology is a type of online chat that offers real-time text transmission over the Internet.

Instant Messaging applications are applications that make use of push technology to provide real-time text, which transmits messages character by character, as they are composed.

These messaging apps can be installed on a smartphone, laptop, and tablets after which you get to chat straight away.

Although these messaging apps have common features, it is important to acknowledge that they all have different features as well.

Instant Messaging Apps has made communication a lot easier, effective and even added more fun. Most instant messaging apps can send voice notes, make voice calls and even video calls.

WeChat, Whatsapp Messanger, Telegram, Facebook Messanger, 2go, Line, Viber, Slack, Blackberry Messanger, Kakaotalk, IMO, Skype, Snapchat, and KIK are a few of the common Instant Messaging Apps around. Although some of them seem to have gone extinct, yet we can not ignore the fact that some are still making improvements hence they remain very relevant.

The two Instant Messaging Apps to be discussed in this piece are Whatsapp Messanger and Telegram

Contrary to the popular misinformation, Telegram app was not designed in India. Telegram was launched in 2013 by Russian brothers Nikolai and Pavel Durov while WhatsApp was founded in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum.

They both have similar functionality features and these include the voice call which allows users to make calls at the cost of data instead of airtime.

Whatsapp Messanger and Telegram would be discussed under the following interesting points

Business Model:
Whatsapp as a Facebook subsidiary charges a small fee for a year license while telegram runs on a kind of open source-alike model, based on donations and always free for the end user.

Multiple device Access:
Whatsapp can be accessed from its web-enabled interface on chrome and opera and needs the phone to be on and connected to mobile data or wifi. This means for the web-enabled interface to work; the phone too must be connected....Follow this https://vanaplus.com.ng/blogs/news/instant-messaging-telegram-vs-whatsapp to learn more.
