Of course it works, but why install "snap" at all and get in a toolset from the same strange company that runs "ubuntu" when you don't have or don't want it. Plus Telegram provides a recommended way to install it with user-rights that provides an updater as well. No impact anywhere else on your system.

My advice is: Don't install "snap" at all when you don't know what it is.

No arm64 build from the official source. The telegram download that I can find is only for 32 bit and no arm/arm64 at all. Which is why I am using the snap.

I could backport the 2.5.8 version from sid, but I am old and lazy. If I was on a desktop/laptop with lots of ram I would, but running on a Raspberry PI400 it isn't worth the time it would take.

I will agree there are too many back alleys in this world, so if need be, constantly think security...

have fun!

Your options are download from telegram, build from source, backport from testing or sid, or use snap/flatpak.
How to backport: https://wiki.debian.org/SimpleBackportCreation

https://packages.debian.org/search?s...legram-desktop
Package telegram-desktop
stretch-backports (net): official telegram messaging app
1.1.23-1~bpo9+1: amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips mips64el mipsel ppc64el s390x
buster (stable) (net): official telegram messaging app
1.5.11-1: amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips mips64el mipsel ppc64el s390x
buster-backports (net): fast and secure messaging application
2.2.0+ds-2~bpo10+1: amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips64el ppc64el
bullseye (testing) (net): fast and secure messaging application
2.5.8+ds-2: amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips64el mipsel ppc64el
sid (unstable) (net): fast and secure messaging application
2.5.8+ds-2: amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips64el mipsel ppc64el

You could also just use the telegram web , have Chromium install it and poof you have telegram.

Just to clarify:

Add:
Code:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian experimental main contrib non-free
to /etc/apt/sources.list then run:
Code:
apt update
apt -t experimental install telegram-desktop

Adding the experimental repos to a Debian stable system is likely a recipe for disaster.

You have searched for packages that names contain telegram-desktop in suite(s) experimental, all sections, and all architectures.

Sorry, your search gave no results

I don't understand why you are having so much trouble. I already suggested installing the binary that they provide. Did you try? Here's the link again, this time in what I guess is your native language:
