Power saving mode


Telegram is getting a new Power Saving Mode. This new feature can be set to automatically turn on when a user’s phone’s battery reaches a certain percent, and it helps in conserving the precious battery life. Futhermore, the company says that iOS users can also use power saving settings to limit background updates.

How to use: Settings > Power Saving.


Granular Playback Speed

Telegram already enables users to change playback speed for videos, podcasts, and voice and video messages. Now, the company has improved this functionality by using the 2x button to choose any speed between 0.2x–2.5x.

How to use: Tap the three dots near the video > Tap Playback Speed > Adjust the slider.

Read time in small groups

Groups that have less than 100 members will now show read receipts, which is essentially the time when your messages were read by each person.

Auto-send invite links

Another feature that Telegram has introduced for its users lets them control who is allowed to add them to groups. “If you’re inviting someone who restricts this, you can now quickly send them an invite link as a message,” the company wrote in a blog post.

How to use: Settings > Privacy and Security > Groups and Channels.

Dynamic order for sticker packs

Now Telegram users can set the ordering of their sticker packs. “As of the previous update, recently used sticker packs move to the top of your panel for easy access. If you want your packs to stay where they are, you can tap the gear icon in the sticker panel and switch off Dynamic Pack Order,” the company added.

Improved folder support for iOS

Now, Telegram’s iOS users can mark all chats in a folder as read with one tap. When forwarding messages, folders can be used to quickly find the right chat.

Telegram said that these features will be coming to Android in one of the next updates.

New animated emojis

Telegram has also introduced 10 new custom emoji packs for Telegram Premium users.

New interactive emojis and reactions

Telegram has also added six new emojis to the mix. These new emojis can also be used as reactions.

What else

Beyond these, Telegram has opened its Great Bug Hunt program to everyone so that anyone can report issues in the app. “While we’re working on the next update, everyone is welcome to use to report issues to our team and leave suggestions via,” the company wrote.

The company also said that bot developers can now fully localise their bots by translating bot descriptions and the ‘What can this bot do?’ sections into multiple languages.
