With the increase in the number of users, the cloud-based messaging app has rolled out many new features with an aim to offer an immersive and smooth user experience.
Now the app is all set to get the much-awaited group video call feature. As reported by Yahoo Finance, Telegram CEO Pavel Durov has announced that the iOS version of the app will get support for group video calls next month. Initially, the company planned to roll out the feature last year.
As per the report, Durov made this announcement via a text message, which he posted on his official Telegram channel. He wrote, “we will be adding a video dimension to our voice chats in May, making Telegram a powerful platform for group video calls. Screen sharing, encryption, noise-cancelling, desktop and tablet support — everything you can expect from a modern video conferencing tool, but with Telegram-level UI, speed and encryption. Stay tuned!”
Telegram already offers end-to-end encryption in one-on-one video calls.
Recently, it was reported that Telegram is planning to introduce two new web apps. According to a report by DroidMaze, the company will soon launch two web apps — Telegram WebK and Telegram WebZ.
The apps come with features like chat folders, support for stickers, search and other new options. However, they lack some of the important features required for regions that may be going into lockdown mode again because of the COVID-19 virus: video and voice calls.
