Telegram Messenger has been updated to the latest version 7.5, and it comes with a lot of improvements which includes auto-delete messages, Home screen widgets for both Android and iOS, expiring link invites and of course, more animated emoji.
The new auto delete features allows users to set up auto-deletion of messages for any particular chat. Users can choose between 24 hours or 7 days and any message sent after the timer is set will be deleted for everyone. As expected, for groups and channels, only admins can enable or modify the timer.
Home Screen Widget
You can now set up Home screen widgets for the app on both Android and iOS. There are two widgets offered – a chat Widget, which will show all the recent chats, and a Shortcuts Widget, where only names and profile pictures will be shown.
Expiring Link Invite
Link invites can now be configured to only be active for a limited duration, number of uses, or both, and they can also be converted to scannable QR codes for easy sharing.
Any invite link can be converted into a scannable QR Code to put on everything from brochures to billboards.
Groups with Unlimited Members
Telegram groups allow up to 200,000 members to exchange messages, media and stickers. Groups that are close to the limit can now convert into Broadcast Groups that allow unlimited members.
You can update your Telegram messenger to get this new features from playstore.
