Telegram, one of the best and most powerful messaging apps, introduces Voice Calls.

Telegram Calls are built upon the time-tested end-to-end encryption of Telegram's Secret Chats with improved key exchange mechanism. To make sure your call is 100% secure, you and your recipient just need to compare four emoji over the phone.

Whenever possible, your calls will go over a peer-to-peer connection, using the best audio codecs to save traffic while providing crystal-clear quality. If a peer-to-peer connection can't be established, Telegram will use the closest server to you to connect you with the person you're calling in the fastest way possible, using Telegram's distributed, constantly growing infrastructure all over the world.

AI-Powered Telegram's neural network learns technical information such as network speed, ping times, packet loss percentage, etc. of the voice calls to optimizes dozens of parameters, improving the quality of future calls on the given device and network.

On Telegram, you can control who can and who can't call you with granular precision. You can even switch voice calls off altogether, blocking anyone and everyone from calling you.

As soon as Voice Calls are enabled for your country, a phone icon will appear on every profile page. On Android, you can also call from the ‘...' menu in a chat.

Today the Voice Calls are automatically activated in Western Europe.
