The new update to the telegram includes group video calls now increasing up to 1000 viewers, previously group video calls only allow up to 30 users to broadcast video from both their camera and screen. These could be the best suitable online classes.

Also a new update to video messages which is now higher resolution, you can also tap on a video message to expand it and view it in a big circle.


Telegram said, “Audio from your device will keep playing as you record so you can now sing along to your favorite songs or reply without pausing your podcast. Additionally, recording with your rear camera lets you pinch to zoom in and capture things at a distance or add a dramatic effect (eerie music not included).”

A new video playback speed now supports 0.5x, 1.5x, and 2x playback speeds. While the Android developer app also supports 0.2x speed. On iOS, tap on the three-dot line option when the video was playing then select video playback speed, there you can select from 0.5x, 1.5x, and 2x playback speed. On Android, press and hold the 2x button when playing voice or video.

Telegram also added screen sharing to 1-on-1 calls which now includes the sound from your device when broadcasting in any video call.

On iOS, press and hold message and tap on select then choose clear chat from top left then tap on third option call Enable Auto-Delete, there you can choose a duration.


The media editor allows you to illustrate and decorate your photos and videos with drawings, text, and stickers. To more easily add fine details (or that perfect mustache and pointy ears), the width of your brush now decreases as you zoom in – giving you the precision of a professional.

Also, a Telegram for desktop now has its own photo edition where you can crop, rotate, or flip the images as well as the ability to add drawings or stickers. Users also have the ability to sen uncompressed files by unchecking the Compress Images box. There are also new animations to passcode lock interfaces.

Telegram also introduces a new Password Recovery and Reminders prompt in Settings that help you practice entering your Two-Step Verification password. If you forgot your password, there is a new password reset option that works even if you don’t have a recovery email — as long as you’re still logged into your account. The process will take 7 days and can be canceled from any of your devices.


Also, introducing new lightweight animations to text messages when you hit Send, your text smoothly transforms into the message bubble as it flies into the chat. While the iOS users already have this buttery smooth animation in the last update.

The new In-app camera on iOS now includes 0.5x and 2x zoom levels, also you can press and hold a zoom wheel that lets you zoom in and out with granular control.

And there’s more update to iOS, users can now choose multiple recipients for forwarded messages by tapping “Select” in the forwarding menu to share best memes with all their friends. Also, scrolling with two fingers in the chat list quickly selects several chats for bulk actions like archive or mark as read.


Profile pictures now follow the messages as you scroll in group chats so you always know who sent each one, even in long chains of one. word. after. Another.
