Telegram Desktop: How to Use the Messenger on your PC

Alongside WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram, Telegram is one of the most popular messenger apps in Germany. Especially in the last few years, the number of members has risen sharply.

You would also like to use Telegram on your desktop? We explain how you can use the messenger privately and for business communication on your PC.

Telegram Desktop: How it Works

You use Telegram privately on your smartphone and would also like to use the messenger via your desktop? Then there are two options available to you:

  • Telegram Web
  • Telegram Desktop Application

You can open Telegram Web directly in your browser. To link your account to it, you can log in using your phone number or a QR code.

**WhatsApp Web via QR code: **

  1. Open Telegram on the smartphone
  2. Open settings and select devices
  3. Select Link Desktop Devices
  4. Scan the QR code with your smartphone

Alternatively, you can log in directly via your number. All you have to do is select your country of origin and then enter your mobile phone number. You will then receive an SMS with a code that you enter on the website for confirmation. Telegram Web is then available to you.

Telegram offers a desktop application for both iOS and Windows. This can be downloaded and installed directly via the Telegram website. Once you have installed Telegram Desktop on your device, you can log in again via a QR code or your phone number. The procedure here is identical to the web version of the messenger.

A small special feature of the Telegram desktop app compared to the web version is the possibility to make phone calls with contacts.

Using Telegram for Business on the Desktop

Telegram is a popular channel not only among private individuals, but also for companies. In order to be able to use the messenger efficiently in customer communication, the application via mobile end devices is just as important as the use on the desktop.

As soon as several users manage the channel at the same time or other communication channels are used at the same time, communication becomes confusing. With Superchat, you use Telegram Business together with other important communication channels in one platform.

In addition to the Superchat mobile app, a web version is also available. Messages from all messenger channels, e-mail and SMS are collected in the universal inbox.

These additional functions are available to you.

  • Clear separation of private & business
  • Universal inbox with all important channels
  • Assigning staff and assigning labels
  • Internal notes to share additional information
  • Team chat for internal communication
  • etc.
