Telegram Adds New Features Group Video Calls And Animated Backgrounds

The Telegram messaging app was recently equipped with additional functions. Users are now offered the option of making video calls with multiple participants. In addition, the backgrounds can now be animated and thus made more lively.

More than a year ago, the developers of the messenger had promised that every voice call in the app could soon be converted into a video call via an icon. In the case of group calls, however, the camera symbol has not yet appeared. That has now changed so that group video calls are possible. The number of participants is initially limited to 30 people. However, this limit is to be increased in the future. The smartphone screen can be shared during a call.

Since the screen recording has no effect on the smartphone camera, both videos can be transmitted at the same time. In order not to lose sight of the image of a specific user when there are a large number of subsequent participants, a video can be pinned on. In addition, all videos can be viewed in full-screen mode.

Animations Create beautiful chats

In addition to the group video calls for the new telegram, the update has animated backgrounds brought with it. For implementation, algorithmically generated color gradients are placed over the static background image. Thus the picture seems to move after every message sent or received. By choosing three or four colors and adding an optional pattern, users can create their own animated backgrounds.

In addition, the noise reduction technology was revised in discussions and made more reliable. The suppression of background noise can be deactivated at any time via the settings. As usual, the latest version of Instant Messenger can be found in the Google Play Store or in the Apple App Store.
