Multi-platform messaging service, Telegram rolls out its 12th update this year. The update brings several features such as spoiler text, in-app translation, themed QR codes, and quick reaction support.
The Telegram app has been updated to version 8.4 and is being rolled out to all Android users.
Telegram was the first chat messaging app to bring animated and interactive emojis. Now, the app is bringing the six emojis; thumbs up, thumbs down, fire, party, heart, and star eyes as reactions to messages.
This reaction feature would allow users to react to messages without sending a text message. It is popular on iMessage, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and Slack, a business place communication tool.
To react to a message, the users need to tap once on the message. Whereas for iOS users, a quick reaction can be done by holding the message.
The Reaction feature is already enabled in the private chats. In the case of a group, the admins can choose to disable the feature option and also can control what reactions are to be made available within the group.
Additionally, Telegram in its new update brings an in-app translation feature that allows users to translate messages to their preferred language. To enable the translation feature, users need to go to Settings then to the Language section. Now the users will see a translate button for messages sent in the languages they don’t read. This language translation feature is available to all Android users but iOS users, need to update to iOS 15 to use this feature.
Last but not least, Telegram brings support for themed QR codes. Users can generate themed QR codes for anyone with a public username, as well as bots, groups, and channels.
Users can scan the OR code to connect and also can share the code with their friends and families on other platforms.
