Fluid animations that have been added to the programme make it easier for users to respond when conversing with multiple contacts on the app, making the whole user experience seamless.

Hiding Member List For Groups

Large groups can be kept spam-free via tools like the strong anti-spam option, but some groups may also prefer to shield their members from unsolicited personal messages. Group administrators with more than 100 members can now now opt to hide the member list. This way, if users don’t message the group, only the admins will be aware of their presence.

Profile Picture Settings

If you only want specific users to be able to see your profile images, Telegram permits you to upload a public profile picture. Additionally, you may now obtain the highest level of profile picture privacy by setting visibility to “Nobody” and adding specific users or groups as exceptions.

Profile Picture For Your Contacts

You can select a photo for your contacts while editing them; only you will be permitted to see it on their profile. You can also advise your contacts on a suitable profile photo.

New Text, Drawing Tools

Telegram added additional text and painting tools with this most recent version.  Drawing tools automatically smoothen your lines and modify line width dynamically, depending on drawing speed. There is a new blur tool for covering up private information (or photobombers), and there are five high-precision options to select colours, including the Eyedropper tool. Additionally, users have the option of altering the background, font type, and size when adding text to images and videos.

Zero Storage Usage

On your device, Telegram takes up negligible space. You can always download any files from Telegram after deleting them from your phone’s storage. With this version, you can add unique auto-remove settings with exceptions for particular chats for cached media from Private Chats, Groups, and Channels. The new pie charts make it easier to see what’s using up space, and specific tabs for Media, Files, and Music let you quickly delete the bulkiest stuff.

Hidden Media Feature

Users can use the hidden media function to add a shimmering overlay to photographs and videos to blur them. Your intended audience only needs to tap once to end the spell and view the content. You must open the attachment menu and choose one or more items to utilise this feature. Following this, click the “three dots” icon and select “Hide with Spoiler” from the menu that appears.
