- The latest update of Telegram brings unlimited participants to video calls and live broadcasts.
- It also brings improved forwarding control and the ability to quickly jump to the next unread channel.
The Telegram team has been working hard to bring various features to the service in 2021. Some of the more notable features introduced this year include improved video messaging, group video calls, club-style voice chat, and improved multimedia tools.
The team just announced another major update. The title feature is that you can have unlimited participants during group video calls or live channel broadcasts. If you allow, participants can also raise their hands and participate in the conversation.
We now also have the so-called “flexible forwarding” in Telegram, allowing you to show/hide the title and sender before clicking “forward”. The preview window also allows you to change the recipient in case you accidentally click on the wrong chat.
Another noteworthy addition to Telegram this time is the ability to jump to the next channel. More specifically, when scrolling to the end of a channel, a prompt appears, allowing you to swipe up to enter the next unread channel. Scroll to the end of this channel, if you have another unread channel waiting for you, the same prompt will appear again.
Other notable additions include a larger preview of sticker suggestions, new animated emojis, a counter of unread comments in the channel, and popular stickers.
