How To Install Telegram Desktop Via PPA?

Everybody knows what is Telegram, right? Well, Telegram is a popular free Instant messenger application that can be used to chat with your friends all over the world. Unlike Whatsapp, Telegram is free forever, no ads, no subscription fees. And, the Telegram client is open source too. Telegram is available for many different platforms, including Linux, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows, and Mac OS X. The messages which are sending using telegram are highly encrypted and self-destructive. It is very secure, and there is no limit on the size of your media and chats.

Now, the good news is someone has created a PPA for Telegram desktop. So that we can easily install it under Ubuntu, and derivatives. To install telegram on DEB based systems, run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/telegram
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install telegram

That’s it. Now launch the Telegram app either from Unity Dash or Menu.
