Telegrams introduce Profile Videos, 2 GB File Sharing, Group Stats and other updates.
Telegram, WhatsApp’s closest rival has rolled out a host of new features including profile videos, 2 GB file sharing, improved people nearby, and more.
Telegram said that now users can upload a video to their profile and choose any frame for their static profile picture in chats. “Same as with any videos you upload, our media editor will help you enhance quality – or decorate yourself with animated stickers. As your mood changes, you can quickly switch back to a previous profile photo or video by tapping ‘Set as Main’. Great for rewinding time and staying young forever,” the blog post said.
You can now upload a video to your profile – and choose any frame you like for your static profile picture in chats.
When people contact you via the People Nearby section, you will see how far away they are. And when you start a chat with someone nearby, Telegram will suggest a greeting sticker to introduce the conversation.
