Telegram Founder and CEO Pavel Durov was very excited about the new milestones thanking each and every one of the users. “Thank you for loving us and for telling your friends about Telegram.”
With everyone seeking for more secure and easy to use apps, many have found themselves downloading the messaging App. For some, Telegram provides them with an avenue to download all the latest shows and movies around without having to surf all over the internet in the hunt for the latest episodes.
The platform also provides users with easy access to music that is uploaded to different channels. News and the like are also on the App.
Telegram is also the 10th most used Application in the World. This is based on how many users use the platform every month.
What New things are Available for Users on Telegram?
In it’s bid to make its users happy, Telegram is now allowing its users to send files as big as 2 GB. “Share and store unlimited files of any type, now up to 2 GB each.” Said the company in a statement.
Users will also now be able to use videos as their profile pictures instead of the traditional usage of a static picture as their profile. Users can go as far as applying effects to the videos and choose a frame of their desire.
On Android, the music player has been redesigned with sleek new icons and an expandable tracklist. Tap the button on the left to control looping, shuffling, and to reverse the track order so your playlist can moonwalk with you.
The message input bar will grow smoothly as you type a long message. And the video editor now allows cropping and rotating videos – to help you hide any evidence you were filming vertically.
And in a new massive development, users of the messaging app will now be able to use up to 3 different accounts using the desktop App something that had been reserved for only mobile Apps for a while now.
And as has always been the case, one won’t need their mobile applications to be online to use the desktop version. “As always, this doesn’t require an active connection to your phone – all our apps are completely self-sufficient.”
