New Telegram Update Brings Video Stickers, Better Reactions, and More
The announcement of the new update was made by Telegram on the blog post stand it has highlighted the following changes that are coming to the app.
Perhaps one of the biggest changes coming to the app is the ability to make video stickers on Telegram. You also get access to a manual that will tell you how to do everything you need to do.
Improved Message Reactions
In the last update, Telegram brought iMessage-esque reactions and in version 8.5, the company has made the animations more compact. Those who are looking to react with the larger effect of the previous version can do so by pressing and holding a reaction in the menu.
Additionally, the reaction animations are now synced on both ends of the chat. One more thing is that you get a badge that appears outside a chat when someone reacts to one of your messages.
You are also getting new interactive emojis, so there is that that you can look forward to.
Other Tweaks and Fixes
In addition to that, you are also getting a bunch of changes that you can read about below.
Our developers spent two weeks in January focusing completely on fixing known issues in Telegram apps. Among other things, they improved call quality, added support for translation to Instant View pages (and bios on iOS), added the option to send silent messages from the sharing menu – and dozens of other improvements.
On iOS, you'll also notice new animations when tapping icons in the tab bar.
