WhatsApp Copying Telegram
November 27, 2014 14:24


Pavel Durov suspects WhatsApp of copying Telegram.

In Durov’s opinion, his work on Telegram makes it possible to force larger applications to improve the quality of their products and to predict their actions. This was written by him in a column on the “Medium” blog service. In particular, Durov states that WhatsApp started working on improvements after the launch of Telegram.

“Following us, WhatsApp has recently introduced the message “read status”, and today it tried to enable end to end encryption for Android texts for the first time” - the businessman wrote. Durov added that looking at Telegram, he can predict how WhatsApp is going to surprise its users in the next year.

In particular, in his opinion, the application will acquire a function to share documents of any type, the web version will appear on by analogy with, the distribution of data across multiple data centres around the world and the self-destruction timer for messages. In conclusion, Durov said that in the next few hours he will be updating Telegram versions for iPhone and Android by the applications which are not yet possessed by WhatsApp.

Earlier the head of WhatsApp Jan Koum accused Durov of plagiarism. “Pavel Durov can only copy such products as Facebook and WhatsApp. He never had original ideas and will never have” - Koum told to the web portal Durov remembered this attack in his column, but said he will not comment on it anyhow, but instead will give the forecast for Koum’s project.

WhatsApp Messenger for smart phones appeared in 2009. In February 2014 the application was acquired by Facebook for $ 19 billion. At that time the monthly audience of WhatsApp users exceeded 450 million people, and the daily audience amounted to about 320 million.

Telegram Messenger was launched by Durov in August 2013. In February 2014 Telegram made a statement about reaching the level of 35 million active users per month
