The Telegram application has just been updated to version 7.3 with a number of new features, including the one we had already talked about in beta: voice chats. In addition, Telegram allows you to move app to SD, improve sticker loading, offers new animations and much more.
Instant messaging on mobile phones is not only one of the pillars of communication, but also ended up gathering a lot more functions. And there’s no app that’s more determined to innovate than Telegram; It’s not in vain that its update history is as extensive as it is prolific. And constant: we already have a new update among us. Very juicy, it shows that we are at the gates of Christmas.
It is now possible to communicate in groups via voice chats
Telegram has officially included group calling, but not in the same way as other messaging apps, such as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. Instead of opening rooms where everyone can communicate at the same time, Telegram opts for voice conversations, a kind of chat groups that look more like walkie-talkie channels than actual calls.
New Telegram voice chats can be created in any of the groups. The guests of the conversation will be able to speak with the mechanic of ‘push to talk‘(‘ push to talk ‘or PTT). Each administrator can create a voice chat and invite whoever they want, the whole group does not need to be present. This way, another conversation layer is created where every contact that comes in will use their voice.
Besides the new voice chats, which focus attention in the news section, Telegram 7.3 includes many more new features:
- Stickers load faster. Telegram optimizes the loading of stickers, both animated and static. And it allows to preview the outline beforehand so that the sticker can be recognized without being completely seen.
- Files can now be downloaded directly to the SD card. Users who need space on their phone can choose SD as the download storage.
- New animations. Telegram for Android improves the animations in different actions of the app. As in profiles, in the message counter or in the new message button.
- Multimedia editor improvements. On Android, you can edit photos already sent to include effects or stickers.
- Telegram hosts even more Emojis.
- New platform for suggestions and errors. Telegram has created a page where anyone can detail the errors found in the applications, it is also possible to incorporate suggestions for future versions of Telegram.
Telegram 7.3 is now available on the Google Play Store: you can download the update from there. In case you want to test the voice chats, you must wait for all the users who will participate have the latest version of Telegram.
