Telegram now allows 1000 viewers in group video call and many other features

Telegram, a messaging platform, has received plenty of new features and improvements. This includes a higher limit for viewers in group video calls, high-quality video messaging, and a regular video playback speed feature. Among other things, it has integrated screen sharing with sound to all video chats, including one-on-one calls. Telegram group video calls can now have up to 1,000 viewers. It allows up to 30 people to stream video from their camera and screen simultaneously.

Users will now be able to record video messages in higher resolution on the platform. A video message can be expanded by tapping on it. In a blog post, Telegram noted that tapping on an expanded video message pauses it and allows you to fast forward or rewind the message if you miss a word.

Users can also record video with audio from their device playing in the background if required. When they record with their rear camera, they may pinch to zoom in and capture distant objects or can add a dramatic effect.

The platform has added a playback speed feature to regular videos. The media player now supports playback speeds of 0.5x, 1.5x, and 2x. The player will also support 0.2x speed on Android. When playing voice or video messages on Android, users may also press and hold the 2X button to choose between 0.5x, 1x, 1.5x, and 2x playback speeds.

Separately, a new timestamp link feature allows users to copy a link and share it in another chat by pressing and holding on to a timestamp. Users can jump to that exact second in the video by using timestamps in captions or replies to videos, as well as in YouTube links.

It has also added a new option to the auto-delete feature, which would remove messages in a chat after a month. Precision drawing, a new photo editor in the Telegram Desktop app, and improvements to the in-app camera on iOS are among the other new features. By tapping ‘Select' in the forwarding menu on iOS, users can now choose multiple recipients for forwarded messages.

Facebook adds End-to-End Encryption for Voice and Video calls on Messenger

Facebook is bringing plenty of new features to Messenger users who enable end-to-end encryption (E2EE). With E2EE enabled, you can now make voice or video calls to Messenger contacts, just like you can with WhatsApp. Anyone outside of the sender and recipient, including Facebook, will not be able to listen to your voice and video calls if you use end-to-end encryption (E2EE) option, so it’s like adding an extra layer of security to your voice and video chats on Messenger. You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company.
