Pavel Durov, Telegram founder and CEO took to his personal Telegram channel to announce. As per the latest technology news, the jump in new users is significant as Telegram recorded 200 million active users by March last year.
Facebook, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram all experienced important disruption worldwide, which inspired users to switch to Telegram, which is known for its encrypted messaging service.
