Telegram has released one of the biggest updates in recent times. The encrypted messaging app is now increasing its capacity of participants in group video calls to 1000 viewers from the previous limit of 30 — thus being able to hold mass events. In addition, the company will continue to increase the limit in subsequent updates.
Other changes that will come in the following updates are the increase in the resolution of video messages, the inclusion of a speed modifier of its video player, the function of scheduling the deletion of your messages in a chat after a while and new animated emojis. All of them will be well received on Telegram channels with the most users.
The update also introduced screen sharing for individual calls and introduced the ability to capture device audio during screen sharing. Ultimately, these changes make video-related content a more prominent aspect of the old text messaging system.
