For the users don’t know about Telegram —
Telegram is a non-profit cloud-based instant messaging service. Telegram client apps exist for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows NT, macOS and Linux. Users can send messages and exchange photos, videos, stickers, audio and files of any type.
Telegram was founded by the Russian entrepreneur Pavel Durov. Its client-side code is open-source software but the source code for recent versions is not always immediately published, whereas its server-side code is closed-source and proprietary. The service also provides APIs to independent developers. In February 2016, Telegram stated that it had 100 million monthly active users, sending 15 billion messages per day. According to its CEO, as of April 2017, Telegram has more than 50% annual growth rate
While the whole world was celebrating Christmas, teams at Telegram was busy updating the app with list of features.
Multiple themes was already supported by Android but this time it is launched for iOS. Telegram provides appearance settings with four different themes including a minimalistic one (“Day”) and two dark themes (“Night” and “Night Blue”). The “Day” theme also allows you to pick an accent color for the entire app, like pink or purple.
Current update v4.7 enabled users to add multiple accounts in Telegram upto three accounts. However, you will require a separate phone number to register these accounts. Switching between accounts are as simple as in Gmail or in Twitter.
Quick reply is as simple as it could be possible, just swipe left on any message to reply on that.
In early December, Telegram released v4.6 with a list of features and settings like new granular settings for auto-downloading media, better link previews, albums in Secret Chats, improved security, and embeds for messages from public groups and channels.
