Today's 4.8 update to Telegram for Android introduces video streaming. You can now start watching videos right away – without having to fully download them first.
All videos newly uploaded from official Telegram apps can be streamed with version 4.8. You can see the caching progress as a light grey strip:
As of this update, Telegram for Android can automatically switch to the dark version of the interface after nightfall or in low-light conditions. To set up Auto-Night Mode, go to Settings > Theme > Auto-Night Mode.
Telegram for Android supports a multitude of custom themes, so you can choose which theme the app will switch to using the ‘Preferred Night Theme’ setting.
We're also launching a Telegram Login Widget today. Version 4.8 includes a ‘Logged in with Telegram’ section in the Privacy & Security settings that lists all the websites you are logged in to via Telegram.
All these features are also coming to iOS, so stay tuned for our next updates.
