Telegram, the widely used instant messaging app, has introduced a new update with a range of new features. The update includes a real-time message translation feature that makes it easier for users to communicate with people who speak a different language. Whenever someone messages you in a language other than your default language, you’ll see a translate bar at the top of the interface. You can tap the bar to translate the message in real-time. The feature is also available to Premium subscribers when engaging with groups and channels.
In addition to this, Telegram has introduced a tool for turning stickers and emojis into profile pictures. This feature allows you to set or suggest profile pictures for your contacts and is available to everyone, not just Premium users. The app has also made it easier to sort through the vast collection of stickers and emoji by organizing them into categories and has added 10 new custom emoji packs.
The update also features a couple of quality-of-life improvements that make it easier to manage Telegram’s footprint on your device. The network usage tool has been redesigned with a pie chart presentation and separate tabs for mobile, WiFi, and roaming usage. Telegram has also tweaked the automatic media download settings to support exceptions, which gives users more control over the type and size of media the app automatically saves to their phone’s storage.
If you’re interested in trying the Premium version of Telegram, the company has introduced a new annual payment option that allows you to save up to 40 percent on the service if you commit to a full year. The update may take a few days to roll out to all users, so be patient if you don’t have access to it immediately.
