Messaging platform Telegram has rolled out multiple new features in its latest update which includes easy-to-make video stickers, better reactions with compact animations and extra emoji, a button to review unseen reactions and improved navigation between chats. The updates are targeted towards improving the user experience and giving them more options to express themselves on the platform, Telegram said in a statement.
With an unmatched quality and efficiency, the stickers introduced by Telegram support for converting stickers from regular videos. Since creating such stickers requires experience and specialized software, the support from Telegram gives the flexibility to the consumers for creating their own pack or add new sets made by others. Further developers can use the Sticker Import API to build powerful apps for creating and importing stickers to Telegram.
Better Reaction and Interactive Emoji
Telegram has made reactions better by giving them the shape of compact animations. The interactive emojis are now synchronized, and the recipients will see the animations in real time. The update has also added 5 new reactions that can also be accessed via full screen effect.
Navigating Recent Chats
The consumers can now hold the ‘Back’ button to return to a specific chat. Further, consumers can easily navigate through chats through opening chats from forwarded messages, links, usernames, profiles, etc.
Bug Busting and More
The new update also brings improved call quality, added support for translation to Instant View pages (and bios on iOS), and the option to send silent messages from the sharing menu. The iOS version also has new animations which can be explored by tapping icons in the tab bar.
