Messaging app Telegram has achieved a new milestone as the company now has 200 million monthly active users, within the period of last 30 days.

Telegram, via a blog post said, “Within the last 30 days, Telegram was used by 200,000,000 people. This is an insane number by any standards. We owe reaching this milestone to you alone – our users. Above all, we at Telegram believe in people. We believe that humans are inherently intelligent and benevolent beings that deserve to be trusted; trusted with freedom to share their thoughts, freedom to communicate privately, freedom to create tools. This philosophy defines everything we do.

In addition to the new groundbreaking announcement, Telegram has announced a new update, version 4.8 and version 4.8.5 for Android and iOS, respectively, introducing various new features to the messaging platform.

Firstly, the new update has brought in the new Sticker Search which allows users to search for the desired stickers he or she is looking for. The users are required to open up the sticker section, type the desired sticker name in the new Search Field, and the searched sticker appears.


Second in line is the new Multi-Shot sending which lets users send one image after another with great ease by tapping the ‘+’ icon situated to the right.


Additionally, the Auto-Night mode which was earlier available for the Android users, has now reached to the iOS users which will allow the users to set the dark mode in the night or when light is low.


Furthermore, Telegram is now battery optimized for long usage without compromising on the battery.
