Android SDK

If you want to download Telegram, you need to have at least Android 4.1 (SDK 16). In case you installed Telegram before 4.1, you have luck since you can still use it (but no way to update it). If you have an older Android version and want to use Telegram for the very first time, you may have luck to get version 3.3.2 (Android 2.2), 3.9.1 (Android 2.3) or 4.1.1 (Android 4.0) from third party websites (APK direct download). Remember that Telegram did not upload them, so you need to have 100% trust in the uploader.
