Chat via Telegram on your Apple Watch, using Pigeon.

About Pigeon — Client for Telegram
Before the telegraph, Pigeons ruled the messaging industry. Today, a little pigeon lives on your watch, bringing your messages across Telegram.
That little pigeon, is none other than this app!
Pigeon is a Telegram messaging client, built just for the Apple Watch platform. It operates directly on your watch, without even a companion iPhone app.
Messages are communicated and received via Telegram’s official interface, TDLib, to ensure the same level of secure communications, expected of the Telegram platform.
None of your personal information is collected, so that you can chat with confidence.
Pigeon receives not just plain old text messages. Formatted messages such as those with bolded, italics, underlined or strikethrough are presented as your friend had intended.
SUPPORTED MESSAGE TYPES
Pigeon also shows you the GIFs, photos, videos and voice notes that your friend or channel had sent, and it can also send* text and GIF messages to your friends.
You can even zoom in on the photos!
The interface scales according to your Dynamic Type settings, to better fit your needs!
SIMPLE SIGN IN
Signing in, is just 2 or 3 simple steps.
1. Using the official Telegram app, scan the QR code displayed on the watch.
2. If you have enabled Two-Step Verification, you will have to enter your password. Otherwise, you’re in!
REACTIONS, REPLIES AND DELETE
You can also send* reactions or reply to messages, or even delete them, directly in the app! Long-press on any message to view these options.
WEB LINK PREVIEWS
Did your friend send you a link? Go ahead and click on it, to open a quick web preview to see what it’s about.
Pigeon pages the chat list, such that even if you have many friends, you won’t be bombarded with hundreds of chats, all at once. That in turn, makes things faster too!
If you prefer to arrange your chats on the official Telegram app via folders, Pigeon can sync and filter accordingly too!
MORE FOR THE FUTURE
The pigeon’s adventure had just begun, and it won’t stop here. More features and message type support are planned for the future!
*Some features requires an active subscription.
With a subscription, you would be able to go to the next page of the chat list, view older messages, send messages, reactions and replies, future feature updates, as well as to support the development efforts to keep Pigeon going!
Pigeon is not affiliated, associated, endorsed by, or in any way connected to Telegram Messenger.
Note: In order to use without an iPhone in close proximity, a cellular-enabled Apple Watch is needed, with an active cellular plan and connection.
