Encrypted-messaging app Telegram added several new features this week, including group video calls. The company said that the Voice chats in any group can now seamlessly turn into group video calls just tap the camera icon to switch your video on.
Users can tap a video to have it go full screen, and you can pin a video to keep it in the key position as other people hop onto the call. For now, group video calls top out at 30 people, but that limit will increase soon, Telegram said. You can share your screen as well. The feature is available on all devices, including desktops and tablets Telegram also added animated backgrounds and message animations, the company said in another post. Meet animated backgrounds for chats — the first time in a messaging app!. These multi-colour gradient wallpapers are generated algorithmically and move beautifully every time you send a message.
