As of today, the version 2.8.1 is partially broken due to being out of date. I had to install Telegram Desktop from the website which is as of now version 3.7.3

Does not open... had to remove. I reported issue, but without getting logs from app itself, the issue was not resolved. Warning: this app may be compromised... If this app does not open, remove app via software manager, or if it is not removed, use synaptic -- mark for complete removal.

First time it has happened to me but when I install it through the Software Installer nothing happens when I launch it afterwards.

One of the best messengers there is, and, unlike crap like whatsapp, the developers respect the linux community and maintain a linux desktop version. Like others wrote, go to for a more recent version. The app you will get will be a portable version, just uncompress, double click, scan the QR and you're done.

Can't send files due to this being a flatpak. Just download it from (don't use the Flatpak or Snap button either, use the normal download button)

Malware - do not install. Though installed and supposedly removed through the Software Manager, Telegram is littered throughout the file system. Won't uninstall or allow itself to be removed, meaning the 'delete' option is grayed out. No other sw or hw issues existed on this laptop prior to the installaion of Telegram. To get rid of Telegram, it appears only reinstalling the operating system will work.

Version displayed in software manager is lower than what gets installed. At the time of this comment v3.2.5 is shown. v3.3 is what was installed, which is the current version directly from telegram.

Current version has a popup indicating it will no longer work very shortly (i.e. please update).

I LOVE Telegram, but not the Flatpak / Snap versions since they take +800MB on your hard disk. I recommend everyone concerned about this to go to the official Telegram website and download the tar.xz file (only 37 MB!) and extract it. The binary inside is ready to launch the program (no dependencies).

Nice and updated. For another user saying "use the linux version" fails to realize flatpack IS a linux version, arguably one of the best ways to package apps in linux. If you are on the fence about flatpack's due to size, note that only the first flatpack will require a large download size after that they are much smaller. The package manager has no way to calculate the exact size as they are sandboxed.

Excellent application for desktop. Perfect couple to the mobil application. Have used for years for chat, file sharing and remote automated equipment control.

Very good chat application (I think the best one). Matrix is maybe better, but telegram is more approachable.
