Telegram New features

Encrypted messaging app Telegram is rolling out a new update that gives users more ways to use new emojis to express how they are feeling. For this, the platform will add infinite reactions and emoji statuses.

According to the sources, starting with reactions, Premium users will now have “a selection of infinite reactions.” They can react to individual messages with up to three animated emojis. These changes to reactions are currently available in groups and 1-on-1 chats.

The Company announces in a blog post:

“All users now have access to dozens of reactions – including those that were previously only available with Telegram Premium”

“To accommodate all the new emojis, we have redesigned the reaction panel, making it expandable. The reactions you use frequently will show up at the top,” it added.

Telegram brings new Features to Premium Users

With the new update, group admins can control whether custom reactions may be used in their groups. Now, the premium users can add an animated emoji status displayed next to their name — to quickly let everyone know how they are feeling or what they are doing.

For non-premium users, it includes more reactions. Emoji Statuses are now available to Premium users, with the ability to set any emoji, stock or custom, as a profile status. They can be set to expire after a certain amount of time, reported GSM Arena.

Users can set one of seven standard statuses that change their color to match different Telegram themes — or choose from an infinite number of custom emojis. Popular suggestions for working, sleeping, traveling and more will be shown at the top.

“Tap the premium badge at the top of your chat list or go to settings to change your status. Press and hold an emoji to set a status for a specific duration,” as per Telegram.

Telegram has also announced new username links in the format “username.t.me.” This will easily allow users to share their profiles with emphasis on their names. Logging into the process also becomes easy. The users will now receive login codes via email, or while signing in via Apple ID or Google ID. The login process on iOS now includes new UI and animations.

Prioritize Downloads on Android

Users can now control the Active downloads under the “Downloads” page of Search. You can do this by tapping the Downloads Android icon in your conversation list. You can press and hold any list item to reorganize it and download the top file first. This feature was already available on Telegram for iOS.

The new update is available globally
