Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Could be much better

    By Burt 198567
    1st, all messages should be E2E,and have the option to delete sent msg on sender and recipient phone, NOT JUST IN PRIVATE CHAT. 2nd,its not competitive without video calls( which also should be e2e). 3rd, IOS USERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET A CALL OVER WIFI FOR CODES OUT OF CELL TOWER RANGE, AS LONG AS THEY ARE ON WIFI, IMESSAGE CAN BE USED BETWEEN IOS USERS, SO SURELY A MAC CAN BE USED TO SEND SMS CONFIRMATION CODES, AND THE LACK OF THESE SHOWS THAT TELEGRAM MAY BE FALLING BEHIND OTHER APPS, MAKING US QUESTION THE ENCRYPTION STRENGTH, I WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY FOR AN APP WITH E2E VIDEO CALLS THAT EXCEED IOS VIDEO OVER IP, SECURITY IS THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO MANY TODAY, KEEP UP WITH YOUR COMPETITION GUYS. BTW, I like the app in private chat,(Id suggest that all of it be like private chat options) and I like the option of fingerprint authentication, but the issue was i reinstalled it, and didnt realize I was screwed bc Im out of mins,and it wont call or txt ios users on imessage phone number online, many other people in poor service areas in rural areas rely on imessage for calls and txts, and I would think that the ios version would atleast have the capability to call or send an sms over ip, it should be simple, just use a mac system for setup with ios users, and please, ADD E2E VIDEO CALLS!!!
  • Great App, simple and intuitive

    By Lt. Noin
    The app itself is amazing and it works incredibly well. I use this more then any other messaging app and even got most of my contacts to use it. Most people know I use Telegram more so they so normally download it just to contact me and end up using the app more regularly. If I could make a suggestion, I would love longer video messaging like add an extra minute or something or cap it at 5 minutes. It doesn’t bother me but it would be nice. Another thing is I don’t know if it’s just me but audio messaging records from the camera microphone, I would love it if the app uses the mic in the bottom ( I use iPhone 6) and honestly that’s my only gripe, I’m writing this review in hopes of reaching out and maybe getting an update that allows the mic in the bottom tone used instead of the camera mic. Also I enjoy the app so why not make a review.
  • Media autosave is broken since iOS 12 release and calls dropping every few min

    By MehoCode
    Hey dev team, the auto save feature for all media (images specifically) isn’t working since I updated to publicly available ios 12. It worked perfectly on all betas of iOS 12 and stable versions of previous iOS but now it became very frustrating as I expected to see all images received to be in photo gallery but aren’t being saved for some reason. I tried reinstalling both Telegram and iOS, tested telegram on 3 different iPhones but nothing seem to be helpful in this case. Media auto save is enabled in settings and app has access to photos so no permission issues as far as I understand. I also sent a message to app support few weeks ago and never head back from them so this is the last step before I start looking for alternatives. Another big issue is calls quality/reliability. Every time I call someone after few min I hear beeps that indicate lost/poor network, then I can hear other party again but they can’t hear me or call just drops after 15-20 seconds. The longer the call (multiple calls) is the more often it breaks and I have to call that person again. I’m on latest iOS 12.0.1 and iPhone XS Max 256. Hoping to see these two fixed in the next update. Once this and dropping calls is fixed Telegram will be again my favorite messenger. Until then - 2 star review.
  • answer to the developer!!!

    By samiiiiiyarrrrr
    i wrote a review, and developer wanted me to explain ... there are so many bugs in new version some of them are: 1. In telegram setting, storage, u cant reach the true size of catche! and even you can't clear catche completely! every time you open catch it determines different file sizes! 2. in iPhone, 3D touch doesn't work as well as it worked before! in the new update you cant open profile pictures with 3d touch! 3. some of the profile pictures can't be saved into gallery! 4.when i change my status from online (every one) to last seen recently (nobody) it doesn't work!!! its completely disabled and it cant immediately turn off my status, and it changes to "last seen recently" after a time! 5. block problems! users that i've blocked, can see my profile picture for a very short time, after that they cant see my profile picture! that this is so bad and wasnt like this before! 6.apps keep crashing all time in one of my phones! just like telegramX !! you are just copying that telegram x application and making telegram worse! 7.automatic download does NOT turn Off!!!! why? my internet is finished and my money is stoled because of this. 8.downloaded music or files have the same shape as undownloaded files (just a cloud) this is a mess and so many bugs that i cant explain here please fix them or you're gonna lose all your telegram users!
  • 99% replaced other IM, 75% of SMS for me.

    By SerimanWolf
    Telegram has been an awesome social/chat platform for me. I’ve been using it for a couple of years now and aside from some friends and family that only use texting/SMS and workplace chats, it has almost completely replaced other platforms for me. There are some bugs/hiccups with new features but that is always expected, overall I have been extremely satisfied with the usability and I love how well it works on virtually every type of device (iOS/Android/Windows/MAC) I’ve installed it on. Only thing I can really gripe about is wishing group voice chats and video chatting would be implemented, but I’m sure that’s planned for the future sometime. For that reason I still use Discord occasionally, but that’s it!
  • “File Sharing”

    By Poorya.R
    Telegram is a perfect, secure, high speed cloud based messenger which it makes it almost the most powerful messenger app. But the problem is “file” sharing on iPhone. When you want to share a heavy file (by tapping the share button on the file and choose telegram to send) you have to look at the upload progress till it finishes the percentage line! If you skip this level or want to do something else on your phone you won’t be able, or you will lose your file sharing progress. Whatsapp isn't like that and the file can be seen in your whatsapp messenger even if it has not been sent with a “retry sending” button that can easily send your file in the app itself and without exiting the messenger. Thanks
  • Chat refreshes way toooo fast on ipad version

    By Ember541
    I really like the telegram app. Unfortunately I use a bunch of different group chats. The app refreshes so fast that I cannot click on the message fast enough. I have to hit edit and then I can maybe scroll down to see it - often not. I think that when you click on the message icon it should automatically put those messages at the very top and hold them there until they are viewed. Until this is done I cannot give it more stars because it is very aggravating to try to see who messaged me. Sometimes I have to go on the web version on my ipad but there I cannot see the line that has the message icon. It doesn’t scroll down far enough. So then I have to go on the computer to the web version there. There everything works much better. Please make these improvements!! Thanks.
  • App not working

    By Anakarinaaaa
    Im only making this 5 stars because for the most part telegram has been my favorite messenger app for over a year now. Today I encountered a bug that won't let me send or receive calls or messages. All messages I attempted to send out have the red "!" next to them, and at the top of the screen it has a loading sign with the word "updating". The app basically hung. I deleted the app and re downloaded it but when I plugged in my number it says I don't have wifi. I obviously have wifi because I am posting this right now. I hope there will be some way that I can retrieve my account, together with all my messages and photos.
  • Such a good massenger ( using this app for years )

    By فرشيد تمدن
    Hello telegram people and thank you soooo much for this great app and thanks again for letting us use everything free and secure no matter what. I am using this app for years now and i am gonna use it, even thogh my governement is so uncomfortable with it😄 And in order to use this app better i think adding two options would be great: 1. Abbilty to orgnize channels and groups and even chats in the SUBJECT order (for example: work, school, college, entertainment and ...) 2. Feed for channels ( i dont know if i am spelling right🙄) I mean somthing like instagram, to put all the channels you want on the feed and all of them appear on one place (and i know that is a huge request) Aftre all i wanted you to know that we as iranins ( more than 40milion users and sellers and costumers) are waiting for your BLOCKCHAIN update to fight and stand for our freedom for usinge which app we want, not the one THEY dicide for us! Thank you telegram for every thing (Sorry for grammer and spelling mistakes,😄 this is not my mother language) Sincerely,a SUFFERD irannian person
  • Could be better

    By Raed919
    Hi, This is really one of the best social app i have ever used, there is one issue about notifications, i have a group and i convert it to super one, now i have 320 members, all the admins including me can’t receive any notification at all till i or them open the group then all the new messages will appears , this is actually not good for us as admins so this means i should open the chat to see if there is someone write something!! I tried to mute the group then unmute it, also try to reset all settings in iPhone, also I tried another telegram apps in App store, same issue still exist for all the admins. BTW some of the admins have their own groups and they told me we don’t have issues in other groups that we created it or we joined it.
