That yes, in WhatsApp Web we can in

Something essential and that both platforms have is to be able to receive notifications from the browser when we receive a message.

We also find in both versions with the possibility of in

Something that is also basic in these applications is be able to receive notifications. Well, apart from receiving them on the mobile or smartwatch, you can also give us access to be notified of the web versions regardless of the browser we use and whether we are on Windows or macOS.

Some key differences in shipping and organization

video calls

Yes, there is one important difference in sending uncompressed files. In itself, sending files can be a difference between WhatsApp Mobile and WhatsApp Web, but if we compare it with the counterpart of WhatsApp we find that in Meta it is impossible in

Continuing through the exchange of content, we find that none can in

WhatsApp Web could soon integrate calls and video calls, although at the moment it is a functionality that only Telegram Web has.

Although if there is one notable difference, is that of calls and video calls. These features have been rumored on WhatsApp Web for some time. However, reality shows us that today it is not possible in its web version and it is in the Telegram version.

Then, both versions have a lack regarding an exclusive function in their mobile versions. WhatsApp Web does not allow you to create broadcast messages if not in the iOS and Android app, while Telegram Web does not allow creating foldersthis being one of the most interesting recent features in its mobile version.

Another peculiarity of WhatsApp is the “States”. In its version for desktop browsers, you can see the states, but not create a new one, so in the end it is one more query function. However, they allow us to interact with the states of our contacts.

Apart from what has already been mentioned

If we talk about edit profile data such as the photo or the name, on both platforms it is possible. Of course, WhatsApp Web does not allow you to change the phone number, while Telegram Web does support it, apart from being able to change the username. The latter is not in WhatsApp Web either, but because it is not something that they have integrated even in the mobile version.

What they do share one hundred percent are the privacy options how to decide who can see our profile picture, last time connected and more. Telegram Web perhaps a point above being able to hide being “online”, but because it is something that WhatsApp does not have, although it will soon have it.

Telegram Web provides one more bit of security

Both in WhatsApp and in Telegram we find the possibility of create a security key. In the case of WhatsApp, there are six numeric characters, while in Telegram, different alphanumeric characters can be combined. Well, WhatsApp Web does not request it, while Telegram Web does ask for it just enter.

In other sections, we have identical privacy and security functions. In the case of Telegram there is more confusion as has always happened. In WhatsApp, end-to-end encryption is maintained, which makes chats are completely privatedespite the fact that there is a way to “break” this encryption and WhatsApp itself could have access to it.
