If you have a Mac, you can download and install Telegram using one of two available official clients: Telegram Desktop and Telegram for macOS.
Applications differ from each other in some functions. For example, Telegram Desktop (for macOS 10.8 and later) is a client that is constantly updated as it is a multi-platform version compatible with various computer operating systems. But Telegram for macOS is a native macOS application and unlike Telegram Desktop supports secret chats.
Both Telegram clients can be installed directly from the Mac App Store.
To download the Telegram application directly from the Mac App Store, simply follow our links — Telegram Desktop or Telegram for macOS, which will redirect you directly to the corresponding Mac App Store web pages.
By clicking the browse button in the Mac App Store, you’ll open the application tab in the MacOS Store. Next, click “Get” and then “Install.” Sometimes you need to verify your identity with an Apple ID or Touch ID password (if you have a Mac with this component). After the download and installation is complete, click “Open” to open the application and start registration in Telegram.
