Here’s some good news for creators - Telegram’s latest update will let you record your live streams, while also changing chat themes, accessing new emojis, and browsing detailed read receipts. Creators looking to upload panel or group-led podcasts can leverage the app while using its new range of features to add effects to their videos. Some of these new effects include gradients in message bubbles, animated backgrounds, fullscreen emojis, and new colours.
Telegram 8.0, which is the latest update, will also let you live stream your content to an unlimited audience. You can create a channel and grow the same, or use this feature by creating a group chat and then broadcasting it. Chat admins can record the live stream and publish the same so that users who missed the live version can still access the content.
Other features like double ticks appearing to signify that messages have been read by group members should also come in handy. While this feature is similar to Whatsapp’s double tick functionality, what marks it as different is the fact that data related to read receipts will only be available for seven days. The brand, thus, claims that they have a better handle on privacy.
