Now you can not only upload an image for a profile, chat or channel, but also create it yourself in the avatar constructor – any sticker or emoji will do as a source. At the same time, animated emoticons in the avatar maker are available to all users, including those who are not subscribed to Telegram Premium.

Premium subscribers can enable automatic translation of messages in chats and channels from other languages, for which there is a “Translate” button at the top of the screen. For everyone else, translation is only available for individual messages – you need to select the desired message and click the “Translate” button.

Telegram already has over a million emoticons and stickers in its arsenal, so finding the right one can take a long time. Therefore, the developers of the platform added a category search in the sticker and emoji panels, as well as in the reaction menu. You can also preview the emoji you want before sending it – the feature is available with a long press.

In addition to the storage usage stats introduced in the last update, network usage stats have been added: general summary, Wi-Fi, mobile networks and roaming – all presented in a visual pie chart format. Advanced options for managing media files – You can choose the types of chats, media files that are automatically added to the gallery, you can also set file sizes and types and add exceptions for individual chats.

Files on the device can be safely deleted at any time, the messenger administration reminds – all data is stored in the cloud. And group admins can now decide which media their members can and can’t post, and they can even turn off the ability to communicate in text format and only exchange voice messages, for example.

The Telegram Premium subscription can now be purchased with a discount of up to 40% and sometimes even more – it must be issued a year in advance. Bot developers can add buttons to their interface to select channels and chats based on set criteria. And now you can log into Telegram using Apple and Google ID – you don’t need to enter the code from SMS for this, but you still need to enter the password for two-factor authentication. Finally, the artists of the Messenger team added 10 new sets of emoticons to the kit, as well as several regular interactive emojis – clicking on them starts a full-screen animation, which both interlocutors see at the same time. These emojis are also available as reactions.
