On both Android and iOS devices, Telegram has launched a new update to its software. The update, which comes with version 7.5.0, adds new and upgraded functionality. Auto-delete notes, home screen widgets for both Android and iOS, expiring connection invites, and more animated emojis are some of the new features.
The auto-delete message option now allows users to set a specific time and date to delete a chat after it is received. Users will schedule any message to be automatically removed within 24 hours to 7 days.
The upgrade also requires unrestricted community members to be added by participants. Formerly, the cap was just 200,000, but now the option is limitless. As long as they are new or have fewer than 1000 posts, the chat import function has now been expanded to automatically filter chats by their original date.
Now, on both Android and iOS, users can set up Home Screen widgets for the app. There are two widgets available: a Chat Widget that displays all recent conversations, and a Shortcuts Widget that shows only names and profile photos.
