Global News launches politics channel on Telegram

Global News has launched an official Telegram channel, where you can find the latest political news in Canada.

This is part of our strategy to reach our audiences where they are.

And with over 700 million monthly active users, Telegram is a natural place for Global News readers to find our content.

What is Telegram?

For those unfamiliar with the app, Telegram is a free messaging platform that boasts “speed and security” as part of its main features.

Because it is cloud-based, you can use Telegram across platforms (from your smartphone, tablet, or computer).

Some level of encryption is used for messages sent on the platform.

And there is also the added security if you use the “Secret Chat” function, which uses end-to-end encryption.

According to Telegram, these chats “leave no trace on our servers, support self-destructing messages and don’t allow forwarding. On top of this, secret chats are not part of the Telegram cloud and can only be accessed on their devices of origin.”

As with many other messaging apps, you can create group chats (for up to 200,000 participants), make voice calls, and video calls within the platform.

Finally, anyone can create a channel for broadcasting messages to an unlimited number of people. And THIS is where you will find Global News’ content.

How do I join?

You can download Telegram from various devices, including:

Telegram Web is also available.
