Custom Notifications Sounds

The user can set their favorite sounds as the notification note, including music and memes. To do so, just tap the short audio file or voice message in chat to auto-add it to their list of notification sounds. However, the files should be under 5 seconds and under 300KB in size. You can access the sounds via Settings > Notifications and Sounds.

Custom Mute Durations

With this update, Telegram allows to temporarily mute the notification alerts for specific chats. Also, you can modify alerts. To receive notifications silently, just disable the sound, while toggling one of the Mute options will turn off notifications completely.

New Auto-Delete Menu in Profiles

The auto-delete menu can now be enabled from the three-dot menu on the chats info page. That means it takes fewer taps and supports flexible timer settings like 2 days, 3 weeks, 4 months, and more.

Replies in Forwarded Messages

When a message is forwarded, the other user can also see the reply preview from the original chat to get a better context. Also, to ensure privacy, you can hide the sender’s name or media captions.

Bot Revolution

Telegram is providing tools for developers to create flexible interfaces with JavaScript, allowing bots to replace any website. For instance, a fast-food chain can use the Telegram bot to take orders, show the menu, and do more directly from the chat. That means the users do not need to switch to any other app to order food. In addition, the colors can be adjusted to design the UI that matches the theme.
