Telegram is one of the best and most popular instant messaging apps, thanks to its feature-packed, fast, and actively developing nature. On that note, the latest Telegram update makes it easier to handle notifications, bots, and much more. Here’s everything in detail!
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.
Improved Message Translation on iOS
This one is for iOS users, the app now supports more languages like Ukrainian. Moreover, it can translate the same languages as the Android app. You can enable it under the Settings menu and exclude certain languages as well.
