Telegram X: Update for Android brings many new features

The March update for Telegram X on Android is big. Numerous new features are moving into the app. New is, for example, the multi-account support. Users can sign up with as many accounts as they want. For each account can also be used another theme, practically, if otherwise there would be a likelihood of confusion.

If you hold down an account, you will see a preview of the chats without changing the online status. Sneak Peek, so to speak. If you receive a message, you jump directly to the correct chat.

There are also changes in the presentation of chats. There are now more themes available, plus you can disable the view with bubbles for channels (while remaining active for other chats). Photos are then displayed in full view when the view is disabled with the speech bubbles in the chat.

Sharing your own location is also possible. The whole thing is displayed directly in Telegram X on a redesigned map screen. For this there is also a dark theme, which is used by devices that support a car night mode. In addition, navigation can be started directly from the map or Foursquare can be called up.

Animated actions are now available in the chat overview, so you see when someone is typing, recording a video or voice message.

Also new are the image previews in the notifications. If you pull down the panel, you will see already received pictures or stickers in the preview. However, this is only available to Android users with a system from Android 5.0. In addition, the auto-download rules apply here. If the automatic download for pictures is deactivated, there is no preview.

There is also an innovation in emojis and stickers. You can activate the skin tone, which is available for some emojis, for all emojis that offer this option. In addition, you will now get more sticker suggestions when you touch an emoji.

Chats themselves have received numerous small improvements: You can now move them to a new position in the overview, jump directly to the first message of a date and there is a button to report individual messages. Also, GIFs and images from the bots can now be previewed before being posted to a chat.

These are still not all changes, but the details are getting finer. Anyone who is interested in these, will find it at Telegram. If you want to try out the new version directly, you can do so through this beta channel in the Google Play Store. Meanwhile, Telegram knows that the update is being phased out.
