If you use Telegram as your main messenger app, you’ll be pleased to learn that the app has received a rather significant update that will bring about a ton of new features and improvements to it. This will be applicable to both the iOS and Android versions of the app, so neither platform will be left out.


According to the announcement on its website, Telegram revealed that they will be introducing Instant View 2.0, which is basically the company’s take on Facebook’s Instant Articles and Google’s AMP. Version 2.0 will bring support to right-to-left languages, related articles, image links, tables, and more.

The app for Android has also undergone a redesign where thanks to it reaching version 5.0, Telegram has introduced a major overhaul in the design department, making it easier to access shared media, profiles of users, groups, and channels. Telegram also claims to have squashed a ton of bugs, where they boast that they have managed to fix close to a thousand bugs for the iOS version of the app since October, along with 400 minor improvements.

These changes are already live so if you haven’t updated your version of Telegram yet, head on over to the iOS App Store or Google Play for the download.
