Video Calls with up to 1000 Viewers, Video Playback Speed, High Quality Video Messages, Screen Sharing With Sound, and More

Group Video Calls have leveled up and can now have 1000 viewers – in addition to the 30 broadcasters and unlimited audio-only listeners.

The media player has new 0.5x, 1.5x and 2x playback speed options, which you can enable when watching videos in fullscreen.

Video Messages record in higher resolution and you can tap a video message to expand it – while tapping again allows you to fast-forward or rewind.
When recording video messages, device audio will keep playing in the background, and you can zoom in when using the rear camera.

Screen Sharing has also been added to 1-on-1 video calls, and now includes device audio in both individual and group video calls.

And that’s just the beginning – there are a dozen more features on our blog, as well as plenty of jokes and stunning demo videos. Click here to see more about Precision Drawing Tools, Desktop’s Photo Editor, a new In-App Camera on iOS and more:

Merchants can now natively accept credit card payments in any Telegram chat, relying on 8 integrated third-party payment providers. Telegram doesn't store card info and charges no commission.

Voice Chats can now be scheduled in advance – members will see a countdown in the chat and can choose to be notified when the chat starts.

Two new web versions have launched, with full support for features like dark mode, animated stickers, chat folders and more.

Android users can directly download Telegram from our site. The app will get new updates automatically – and faster than the Play Store version:
