Telegram is rolling out its monthly update that brings a host of features and upgrades for Android and iOS clients. The new updates are rolling out with the latest version ‘Telegram 8.0 ’
The latest version brings features such as ‘live streams with unlimited viewers’ to groups and channels, options to remove captions from media and hide sender names when forwarding, an easy way to jump to the next unread channel without going back to the chat list, and an improved sticker panel, new animated emojis and more.
Telegram 8.0 update: Exciting New Features
One of the major features that are being made available is the ability to broadcast video and to share the display to an unlimited number of viewers. To use this new feature, users can simply click on the Live Stream button in the title bar of a community where they are an admin.
Telegram’s security options allow you to create private chats with other users, which means that your conversations with them are completely encrypted and aren’t saved or stored on Telegram’s servers. And you can activate a ‘self-destruct’ feature so that your messages are erased every X amount of time.
Forwarding has become a much more relaxing experience. Tap the ‘Forward Message‘ label above the message bar to open a preview window, showing how the messages will look when they are sent – along with several customization options.
You can choose to hide the sender’s name or hide captions on media messages. You can also deselect messages you don’t want to send or change the recipient if you tapped the wrong chat.
Jump to Next Channel
Users now have the flexibility of scrolling through the channels followed without getting back to the chat list. If the chat list has been organized with Folders or Archived Chats, the app will follow the structure set up by users.
Trending Stickers are now shown above ‘Recently Used’ in your sticker panel. Tap ‘Add’ to save a pack for the future — the trending sticker section is one of the few things in this world that gets updated more often than the Telegram apps.
When you scroll through your packs at the top of the panel, the thumbnails expand and show the names of your sticker packs.
