Telegram, the cloud-based messaging app that focuses on privacy, has introduced new features with its latest update. These features aim to allow group and channel admins to make their forums interactive and more secure than before, as Telegram claims. These features will also help you manage shared content easily. Let’s take a look at all the new bundled features Telegram has introduced.
Search Filters: Telegram users will now be able to go back to any old messages that may have media or important links using the search filter. The search filter on the platform has been further divided into six different tabs. These include chat, media, links, files, music and voice messages to make the separation clear when searching for any form of content.
Channel Comments: Telegram has also launched a new feature called channel comments by adding a comment button to posts on newsgroup channels to make it more interactive. Users can leave their feedback or reply in comments to channels restricted by admins. Additionally, Telegram noted that these discussions can only take place on channels where a separate newsgroup is connected within the channel. Users are redirected to a separate group where they can see and reply to comments made by other members and it becomes easier to manage for administrators.
Users can enable discussions in their channel by going to Channel Settings> Discussion.
Anonymous group directors: Telegram has extended the anonymous administration functionality that was already available in the channels to groups. The Group Anonymous Administrators feature could transform the identity of any administrator into an anonymous group and all messages sent by administrators on the group will be reflected in the group name.
Animated pop-ups and stickers: Telegram has also added some animated pop-ups for Android users where they can see a new animation while deleting messages, saving media or editing notifications. Hiding the keyboard or switching between day and night themes has been made more convenient as it can be done from the menu on the left. Telegram has also added more animated emojis that users can share among their contacts.
