Telegram VS WhatsApp (My Personal Opinion)
Groups in Telegram are ideal for massive online educational seminars and movie libraries. Telegram is my go-to app when I need to receive or transmit a large file. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to update my Telegram app, which is really rewarding. On certain days, however, my regular WhatsApp updates make me roll my eyes. I dislike how Telegram notifies my contacts of my presence. I like how I can post several WhatsApp status updates.
