Telegram today rolling out an update which brings with it several new features.
The first is the ability to set chat themes. Users can select from eight themes, which apply to the chat for both users. The themes gradient message bubbles, have animated backgrounds, and unique background patterns. They also have a day and night mode for each theme.
The update also adds interactive emoji. When you send one of the select animated emoji in chat, you can now tap on it to initiate a full screen animation. This is then visible to you or anyone else who's also present in chat at the moment. The animations are also accompanied by vibrations.
The third new feature is read receipts in groups. Users in small groups can now select a message you sent and see who else in the group has seen it. Telegram says it will keep this record only for seven days from when the message was sent.
Lastly, admins of groups can now also record live streams. When a live stream is happening, admins can use the record feature and save part or whole of the stream for viewing in the group after the stream has ended.
The update is now available across all the platforms where Telegram is available.
I believe the world will be a better place if most people would use Telegram instead of FB Messenger which is EVERYWHERE where I live
Telegram has developed from a small messaging app to a big social networking platform.
It would be better if Durov borrowed security solutions from the utopia ecosystem. I lose my telegram account for the second time.
