Earlier this year, Telegram announced Telegram X for iOS and Android, for Windows 10 users, independent developers were hard at work on Unigram X for Windows.

Unlike Telegram X for iOS and Android, Unigram X isn’t a separate app but is being delivered as an update to pre-existing Unigram client which is rolling out now.

Here’s what’s new in the app update.

  • Every chat you open is now securely cached on your device, so you can browse them even when internet connection isn’t available.
  •  Secret chats are now fully supported: this allows you to communicate with your friends using end-to-end encryption, even on desktop.
  • My People integration: you can now pin your contacts to the Windows taskbar and use Unigram to chat with them without opening the full app.
  •  The app is now faster, stronger, better.

Telegram for Windows remains in the app store, but for the few remaining users of Windows 10 Mobile, perhaps Unigram X offers a better solution than Telegram’s slower, weaker and clunkier app.

You can download Unigram X from the Microsoft Store link here.
