How to Install Telegram on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

A freeware, cloud-based instant messaging application, Telegram is cross-platform and free for everyone. In addition to video calls that are end-to-end encrypted, the service also offers VoIP, file sharing, and several other features. With its end-to-end encryption for private messages, Telegram provides you with a high level of protection, but you can’t encrypt group chats. There is no premium content or subscription fee. Multi-device support is available. The Telegram app offers extensive storage to save or download files, along with cloud storage, so files can be backed up on the cloud.

For Ubuntu systems to be registered with VPSie, you need to create a VPSie account if you don’t have one already.

Our example is based on an Ubuntu instance with GUI installed. Here is a link that will guide you to installing Ubuntu’s GUI if you do not already have it installed.


Now open your terminal and run the following commands to update your system.


# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y


Step 1: Download Latest Package

Step 2: Install Telegram


You can now install the downloaded package by running the following command:



# cd Downloads/
# ls



Exract the file first:



# sudo tar -xvf tsetup.3.6.1.tar.xz


Step 3: Launch Telegram
