In a upgrade, Telegram Messenger included some new capabilities for users, including the ability to reply to messages, translate texts, create themed QR codes, and reveal hidden information. Here is a look at some of the new capabilities.
Emojis are now available for use by Telegram users in response to certain messages. Reactions are enabled for all private chats; however, for group chats and channels, the feature will be enabled or disabled at the discretion of the administrators. Each reaction has its own animation that is distinct from the others. Several messaging apps, including Instagram’s Direct Messages and Facebook Messenger, currently support the capability.
Always remember that there is a ‘default’ Reaction that is used for all private talks and can be changed at any time. Users can modify their preferences by going to the settings menu on their browser. On Android, users can access this feature by going to Chat Settings > Quick Reaction. On iOS, they can access Quick Reaction by going to Stickers and Emoji > Quick Reaction. Once you’ve entered the settings, select your favorite reaction from the list, which will serve as your default response for the majority of messages.
Admins can manage reactions by going to the Info Page of their group or channel and selecting Edit > Reactions.
Telegram has also included the ability to translate every message that is received through the application.
Users will also be able to translate any message into another language from within the app, albeit this will be dependent on the operating system’s support for language translation at the time of translation. The Telegram translation feature is accessible on all Android smartphones that support the Telegram messaging application. In contrast, the iOS app requires users to be running the iOS 15 plus version in order to function properly. The number of supported languages is the same as the number of languages that are available in the operating system’s language menu.
To enable the translation option, navigate to the app’s Settings> Language menu, where you will find a new dedicated Show Translate button that you can toggle on and off. You can also exclude any languages from the list that you are fluent in, which will prevent the translate button from appearing for messages in that particular language or set of languages.
Spoilers is a new communication feature in which specific portions of the content will be hidden until the recipient taps on them to reveal them.
Spoilers are a new feature that allows a user to hide a specific piece of the text by using the ‘Spoiler’ formatting. It is available in the iOS and Android apps. Moreover, this hidden content is applicable to both the chat list and the notification system. Upon receiving the message, the recipient can choose to tap on it to expose the secret text if they so desire.
Users of Telegram can now produce QR codes for any other users who have a publicly visible username. This works for organizations, channels, and bots, as well as individuals. The ability to quickly exhibit someone’s profile is made possible as a result of this. Users can customize the QR code by tapping on the new QR code icon that appears next to a person’s username and selecting their preferred colors and pattern. It is also possible to print the QR code or share it with other apps and platforms as well.
Every context menu in the Mac version of Telegram has also been completely revamped. This includes the addition of some new shortcut tips as well as animated icons for each and every menu item in the application.
The app now includes new interactive versions of select emoticons that can be used to communicate with others. The following emojis are now supported by the new animations: . Users can send any of them in personal chats, and then they must tap on the image to make it appear in full-screen mode.
