Telegram™ Desktop Addon is a desktop alert notification streamer that can provide you with updates and alerts on new posts, direct messages, replies and more from your telegram page. It also shows the Telegram UI in your browsers toolbar popup. If anything happens on telegram you can receive instant alerts to your desktop so that you can provide the best possible responses. Telegram™ Desktop uses a brand-new streaming API and uses the same alert system that is available on the App. This means that if you regularly use Telegram you can receive notifications even if you happen to be working on your computer or if you have a full screen application open as well.
The Telegram™ Desktop has a huge number of alert features ranging from a notification with every new post as well as direct messages and replies to your posts. The Telegram™ Desktop application takes very minimal bandwidth allocation from JSON communications. This means that the application won't draw too much extra data from your mobile data network in order to provide you with regular updates. The badge notifications on the Telegram™ Desktop appear in a special client to the right of your windows or mac toolbar. The badge will flash whenever there is a new type of notification available on your telegram account. This is a non-invasive notification that won't persistently annoy you if you choose to ignore it on the very first alert. The process for installing Telegram™ Desktop to your browser is also extremely simple. It can be added to your computer just as you would at any other Firefox or Opera extensions. Just go to the Mozilla store and click add to firefox to permanently install the toolbar in the front of your desktop and begin receiving notifications. After installation you can also set the notification status on telegram to only reply you when you receive direct messages or when users post to limit the number of notifications that you receive.
