There is no doubt that both applications have superior and weak sides by means of some little but important sides. Let’s look at these in a little more detailed.



Viber has More Users and Additional Features

Although Viber has more users and has additional features that are not available in Telegram, such as the ability to send free SMS. This may be important for some users while not for others, and the application size is slightly smaller than Telegram. Telegram is one more step further than Viber with its end-to-end encryption, which requires mutual approval. For those, Telegram is better than the Viber application, especially because it is ad-free and more customizable when compared.

Both Applications are available on PC

That’s OK: Both applications are available for Android phones. They are free of charge and can be used from the PC at any time.
