Starting from personal messengers to written letters, emails, and now online messaging, the communication industry has definitely advanced over the years. While WhatsApp has taken a significant place in the instant and online communication industry, Telegram still maintains its customer base by overcoming one of the biggest limitations Whatsapp has, the size of a file being transferred.
Currently, Whatsapp allows users to share files up to 100 MB. Whereas on Telegram, users can share files of size up to 2GB. Although, according to recent updates, Meta owned Whatsapp has reported that it is working on an update which will allow people to share files up to 2GB size and add around 512 people to a group chat.
Even though the new Whatsapp update is on its way, Telegram will still hold a place over Whatsapp when it comes to movie related file sharing. How? And why?
Why do users prefer Telegram to download movies?
As mentioned above, thanks to the file size transfer Telegram allowed from the start, users started using the platform for uploading and sharing movies. Moreover, around 2,00,000 people can be added to one single channel. Both these unique features make Telegram as one of the best apps to download movies.
