Telegram 4.8.3 for iOS and 4.8.10 for Android are out today, bringing several nifty features and improvements.
Sending the wrong picture by accident is rarely fun. On Telegram, it was already possible to delete the message for everyone and send a new one instead. Now you can just replace photos or videos with the correct versions right away:
Start editing the message, then tap the paperclip button to replace the attached media. You can also add captions to photos or videos that didn't have one.
You'll like this one if your friends enjoy sending long and thoughtful voice notes. From now on, you can switch to 2X playback and hear people get to the point faster.
Works with voice and video messages
We‘ve spent a few extra hours to ensure that your friends don’t sound like Helium-breathing chipmunks as a result. Well, most of the times.
This offers a quick way to get less important messages out of the way and highlight the chats that require your future attention.
Sometimes you want to share more info about a contact than just one number. With this update, you can select what data you want to send when sharing a contact. For example, several phone numbers or other vCard fields.
Try sharing a contact that has multiple fields with data to check this out.
When you open a chat from Global Search and then go back, you will return to the search results and keep your position in the list.
Android users are getting a few extra goodies with version 4.8.10. Tap and hold on profile pictures in the chats list to preview chats:
Use the “create link” option in the formatting menu to make text URLs:
Last but not least, it is now possible to cancel sending messages before they are sent.
And that's it for today, stay tuned for our next updates!
