Telegram

https://desktop.telegram.org/
cross-platform instant messaging client

Telegram is a multi-platform instant messaging client. It can be used on multiple devices at same time. It supports sending messages, photos, videos and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc) to people who are in the phone contacts and have Telegram. The messages are encrypted using the MTProto protocol developed by Telegram. Its features include self-destructing messages & broadcast groups.

This is a desktop client program only; there is currently no free software server program for Telegram.
