Many of those who use Telegram swear by it. Not just because the messenger app is great, but because the developer keeps adding cool and innovative features, expanding to other platforms, and generally outclassing the competition in several areas. But what Telegram lacked so far are active users. It doesn't matter how awesome your messaging client is if no one you know is using it.
But Telegram is catching up to the competition (all of which shall not be named in this article, we're going to honor Telegram here). Some of you will say it had to do with that other service being sold to that third service, or to some service suffering from an outage, or to any number of reasons, but the truth is that Telegram is growing and the reason doesn't matter as long as the result is that more people are using it.
Today the team announced two interesting stats that are sure to make every Telegram fan happy: there are now 100 Million monthly active users on the service and 350,000 new users are signing up each day. Not only that, but the service is delivering 15 Billion daily messages. Do your math and you'll see that it's about 150 messages per user, if all active monthly users were also active every day. That's a lot.
Congrats Telegram and may you grow up and become a phone call one day.
