Popular messaging platform Telegram brings exciting new features like enhanced message reactions, new interactive emojis, video stickers, and navigations options including bug fixes and enhancements.
Now, the privacy-focused chat messaging app will offer users the ability to create animated stickers from videos. Apart from the animated sticker feature, Telegram also worked on the message reactions. Additionally, the Telegram 8.5 update adds five more emojis to its interactive emojis roster.
Telegram in its blog post announced the inclusion of a couple of new features and some bug fixes in the new Telegram update. One such feature added with the update is the video stickers that let users create customized stickers from the original videos thereby simplifying the whole sticker creation method. With the help of the sticker bot, users can easily create and publish sticker packs.
Last month, Telegram introduced a feature that allows users to react to messages (similar to Facebook and Instagram) following the latest update, adding the ability to show a bigger reaction by long-pressing your preferred reaction.
The update brings five new reactions that can also be sent as interactive emoji. Tapping the emoji will show a synchronized fullscreen effect.
Furthermore, the message reactions button now has a read status whether the receiver saw the reactions or not. A review button also has been added to review unseen message reactions.
Last but not the least, the Telegram 8.5 update brings numerous bug fixes and enhancements like improved call quality, support for translation to Instant View pages.
