Telegram is one of the most popular instant messaging apps highly protected with end-to-end encryption.

You can access the Telegram app from your phones and desktops as long as there is an active internet connection.

How to connect and use Telegram on a web browser

Telegram Web is a browser-based version of the messaging service that offers a similar feature set to the mobile version. Any message you send through Telegram Web will be accessible on the service’s mobile app. If you are using WhatsApp Web, this service is similar.

Using Telegram Web, you can also send and receive messages and media files from your laptop or desktop computers. If you are not aware of this service, here we show you how to use this instant messaging service from your web browser on your laptop or computer. Before proceeding with the steps below, make sure you are using the latest version of the web browser or updating it to the latest version. Additionally, Telegram is available for Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Linux.

How to use Telegram Web

Follow the detailed steps below to know how to use Telegram Web, the instant messaging service on the web browser of your laptop or PC.

Step 1: First, from your laptop or desktop web browser, visit the official Telegram website. The instant messaging service recommends browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
2nd step: Once the Telegram login page appears, make sure to select the country. Now type your phone number and click on Next button or hit enter.
Step 3: Now you will see a confirmation window on the screen prompting you to verify if you entered the correct phone number and click OK. The service will send a code to your phone number and you will need to enter the code for verification.
Step 4: After this step, click Next and you will be logged into your Telegram web account. It will show all the messages you have sent through the service on all devices.

Should you be using Telegram Web?

Notably, Telegram Web will be useful in specific situations. For example, if you are at work and want to use Telegram Messenger, the web version will allow you to quickly access all the messages and files transferred through the service through your laptop or computer browser. Plus, the web-based version of this service will keep you distracted, as you won’t need to pick up your phone very often.

However, the Telegram web service has its share of limitations. It will not allow you to take advantage of the specific features available on the mobile application. You can use Telegram’s calling and secret calling capabilities. Also, you will be able to invite friends to join Telegram or create new channels using the web browser version of the service.

As a major comparison to WhatsApp, Telegram keeps your messages on its servers. So you won’t need to have your phone connected to the internet all the time for Telegram’s web service to work efficiently.
