Messengers have long been a part of the life of all modern people, representing in some way an evolutionary continuation of social networks. With the help of this kind of services, users from all over the world can communicate with each other from smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices. One of the largest and most famous instant messengers among all existing ones is Telegram, the number of users of which, according to official data, recently exceeded more than 500 million people, and all these people actively use this service, considering it one of the best. Its creator is the Worldn entrepreneur Pavel Durov, who at one time created the social network VKontakte, which is currently owned by Mail.ru Group.
Tens of millions of people love Telegram for the high degree of protection of user information, for ease of use, for its stylish appearance, for the large number of platforms on which it is available, and at the same time for a number of other advantages that this service has. He is constantly evolving, getting better from day to day. Not so long ago, support for video calls was added to it, and this is just the beginning, because the creators of this messenger have big plans for its further development. Quite recently, the creator of this messenger published in his Telegram channel information about the most basic and main advantage of the Android operating system over iOS.
As you know, Pavel Durov is primarily a user of Apple technology, using an iPhone as a mobile device and a Mac as a workstation. According to the entrepreneur, the most important advantage of Android, and perhaps the only one among all the significant ones, is the ability to install any of its own applications on a smartphone or tablet in the form of APK files, while the owners of gadgets on iOS have to be content with only the ability to install any software. through the App Store, while other channels are not available. Because of this, users are deprived of the opportunity to use any programs and games, the features of which do not allow them to get into the playmarket due to the existing rules and strict moderation.
Apple at any time can completely prohibit the use of an application, if it deems it appropriate, so it will stop running on all devices running iOS, says the creator of Telegram. Nothing like this can happen with Android, since users have the ability to install any applications downloaded from anywhere in the form of APK files, and in the same way they can be updated to new versions without using the Google Play store. Due to the existing rules in the App Store, the Telegram messenger with a full set of functions and capabilities cannot be added there, so the company is now creating a multifunctional application for the iOS browser Safari, which will work exactly like the original software, assures Pavel Durov.
