New Delhi: The Telegram messaging app has announced a slew of new features including emoji figurines, endless reactions, new username links, and prioritizing downloads on Android. Now they will have the option of infinite reactions and emoji statues. Check out all the new features in the update for Telegram premium users.
The company informed that Telegram premium users can choose reactions from an endless selection of custom emojis. In addition, they can now attach up to 3 reactions to each message. However, these changes to reactions are currently available in groups and individual chats and group admins can control whether or not custom reactions can be used in their groups.
Now Telegram premium users can display animated emoji status next to their name to let others know how they are feeling or what they are doing. This custom status will replace the premium badge in your chat list, on your profile, and in groups. Popular suggestions for work, sleep, travel and more will be displayed at the top.
You can click the highlighted badge at the top of the chat list or go to Settings to change your status. Tap and hold an emoji to set a status for a specific duration.
New username links
Now each username has a new unique link format – username.t.me – for those who want to underline their name (or are having trouble finding the / key). Earlier, all telegram usernames had their own t.me/username links, which makes it easy to share your public profile, group or channel anywhere on the internet.
Prioritize Downloads on Android
Actively downloaded media and files can be managed in the Downloads tab in the search or by clicking on the download icon that appears in the chat menu. You can now press and hold any items in the list to rearrange them and change their priority – download the top file first.
