In Telegram messenger introduces new features
One of the biggest additions is touted to be the Bot Payments which will allow Telegram users to order goods and services from bots within the app. Once you download Telegram 4.0, you'll be able to send video messages to your contacts. In an effort to not clutter the existing user interface of the app, Telegram developers decided to make the camera icon accessible by tapping the microphone icon, which will prompt a switch between the two. Holding the newly emerged shortcut will start recording a video message and letting it go will end the recording and automatically send it to your recipient. After that, it switches to camera mode. The feature now also works with voice messages. Else, Telegram servers could easily be overwhelmed by all the videos that are on their way. You can change this default by heading to the settings panel and make tweaks.
Headlining the update is support for video messaging. What this feature does is allow anyone to view articles directly in the Telegram app and create article previews using the Instant View Editor. Even those who are non-Telegram account holders can view these video messages. It's described as "a dedicated video hosting platform for those who use videos to communicate with their audiences".
The second novelty we found out is that of the video messages. Telegram will host the videos and users can subsequently view them on the channel's Telescope.
The year 2017 is marked to ride high on artificial intelligence, machine learning, digital assistants, and bots.
The team behind Telegram has just announced a range of new features that are now available in the latest version of the application. For example, you can order goods from merchant bots and pay for the purchase directly through the app. When you tap Pay, you'll be asked to fill in your credit card and shipping information and confirm the payment. The first notable functionality introduced with the new update is support for video messages, something that many Telegram users have been requesting for a while now. The new Instant View Platform is a follow-up to the Instant View feature that was released a year ago. "They work great even if the source website isn't optimized for mobile devices". To initiate the process, Telegram is also launching a $200,000 crowdsourcing competition for template makers.
In the new version, users can also tweak how their Instant View articles appear; right from font to theme.
