With over 2 billion daily active users, whatsapp is probably the world’s biggest service of messaging. After this, Telegram has 400 million people and Signal is located at a 10-20 million active monthly ballpark. Looking simply at the raw data, it would be obvious that WhatsApp is incredibly common and almost omnipresent while Telegram catches up and Signal seems just part of the million download race. However, numbers sometimes don’t tell you the whole truth, so here we compare the protection and characteristics of the three apps.
One of the reasons that WhatsApp is the world’s biggest chat site is that it constantly delivers updates and features for the application. WhatsApp provides a variety of tools that make connectivity simpler and more fluid on the network from end-to-end encryption coding, to the prospect of handling media Storage.
Maybe the most relevant feature of this lineup, payment through whatsapp, was launched in November 2020. Users can transfer money to another WhatsApp account directly from their bank accounts through UPI (Unified Payments Interface).
WhatsApp Disappearing Messages
For the last few months, WhatsApp is on the spotlight because of the popular WhatsApp chats that have leaked into the news portal. The platform has introduced an extra feature called Disappearing Messages feature to ensure its users of protection and privacy that causes chats to vanish after a certain amount of time (7 days as default).
Dark Mode WhatsApp
Along with a more powerful dark mode ecosystem in the entire software world, it definitely took WhatsApp a long time to enter the bandwagon. WhatsApp not only gets a new look in the dark mode, but also saves the smartphone a lot of battery juice, since WhatsApp is one of the most popular programmes in the everyday and darker pixels consume less battery.

Animated Stickers from WhatsApp
All of this is about speech and WhatsApp means that you have all of the right tools to express yourself with animated stickers. Stickers have been used for a long time now that programmes such as Hike and WeChat have used stickers, among others. You can add more sticker packs by installing them from the Play Store or App Store in WhatsApp, as usual.
Signal is only a networking application available in India and many other markets. This programme is established by the Signal Foundation of the United States. Both Google Play and Apple App Store have signals available. As previously reported, Signal has been in the leading app talk in Google Play Store and App store due to an increasing demand for WhatsApp alternatives in India. In comparison to WhatsApp, the company believes that Signal is a reliable and stable messaging network. Both Signal messages are encrypted from end-to-end.
Why is everyone talking about it?
Signal delivers secure tweets, speeches and video calls to its customers and encrypts all communications. However, you do not have the luxury of sending messages to several contacts at once. You may still build classes. Moreover, the support for community calling has recently been introduced by Signal.
The Signal Instant Messaging software is the most secure app in the world, according to Elon Musk.
The great aspect of the Signal App is that it is completely protected and there is no fear that user data will be exchanged. In other words, all the personal details of the users remain personal. It also does not send unsecured user backup to the cloud and leaves the encrypted database safe on your device.
The app was developed by Moxie Marlinspike, an American cryptographer and currently CEO of Signal Messenger.
