Though Telegram is not that popular as compared to the likes of WhatsApp, it has its own set of features which makes it stand out. The latest Telegram update makes the messaging app all the way more productive.
The developers have pushed a list of some pretty interesting features this time which makes Telegram a must-have if you like to secure your privacy.
So, what all is new in the update? Let’s find out.
What’s new in the latest Telegram update?
With the latest Telegram update, you can now send self-destructing photos as well as videos while you are involved in a person to person chat. You also get to set the duration after which the media items will self-explode: You can set a self-destruct timer which starts off as soon as the recipient has opened your message and tried to access the media item.
This is an amazing step taken by the developers and provided to the users as it will allow for more secure conversations. The level of security provided in the latest Telegram update goes to the point that even if the recipient party tries to take a screenshot of your image, the app would notify you of that.
This poses a serious question to the way media items are being accessed in other messaging apps and major apps like Facebook messenger and WhatsApp might soon want to follow suit.
Other than this amazing feature, the update brings in an improved photo editor which would allow for faster image editings and an option to provide your bio to your profile pictures.
You can also now download media from large public channels way quickly owing to the new encrypted CDNs. You can expand stickers to full screen by tapping the “up” button in the sticker panel.
