Telegram has been very well suited for family video calls and conversations where detailed and private information is being shared. Video calling is fantastic and I'm so thrilled that they added group video calls now! The video quality is also so good that I've been able to use it to make virtual portrait sessions happen. I just don't use this for sending out formal contracts and things like that. I feel like email still needs to be used for those scenarios, but any client that just wants a secure way of communicating with me about their private family matters...this is THE app to use!

Cons

Open Source

  • It is so safe to use that many users can share anything, including private pictures of anyone, even nudity as well. That is horribly disgusting.
  • They should restrict those users who run nudity in the Telegram groups and community.
  • Otherwise, I don't have any problem[s with] Telegram. I am a very satisfied user of Telegram.

TextMagic

  • Connection between other services ERP, CRM and slack.
  • Textmagic is a tool for kids who want to SMS chat.
  • The possibility to change the SMS provider to Twilio or others. It is not legal to forbid that but they find a way to bypass that.

    I am very happy with how TextMagic is working. I don't see a reason to spend time searching for another solution when this works great at a good price. Customers have shown a good response to the text messages we have send. Very small percentage unsubscribed (but that was automated/easy).

    It has been very easy to use TextMagic to set up. The calculator showing character count which relates to cost is easy to see and adjust. The scheduling portion is also easy to set up and edit if needed. You can see history to copy wording if you need to. I have suggested to other friends that do not have a text service.

    I used WhatsApp Business but it's limited. I can add only 250+/- members to the WhatsApp group. But in Telegram, it's 200000. So this is a big opportunity to promote my event. Telegram has much more user data privacy and company transparency than Signal. I am using both but telegram for vas communication

    We have our company cell phones through AT&T and we researched setting up a text blasting service through them. It would have been a very expensive option and it made no sense to spend that kind of money when TextMagic does everything we need it to do for a minimal investment
