Earlier, the instant messaging software Telegram has surpassed 1 billion downloads worldwide.

As per Sensor Tower study, India is the largest market for Telegram, accounting for 22 per cent of all downloads. This is comparable to Telegram's main competitor WhatsApp, which likewise has India as its largest market. According to reports, Telegram downloads increased in 2021.
