You can now choose the type and size of media to be saved to your gallery in Telegram. Additionally, you can decide whether to save media from channels, groups, or personal accounts.
Users can also create exceptions, in order to save exactly what they want. The new update also gives group administrators the ability to enable or disable different types of media that participants can send in a group conversation.
Telegram's annual premium subscription is 40% off. You'll pay $39.99 for the annual plan, which is $3.33 less per month than the current rate of $4.99.
The update also makes it possible for admins to grant bots access to accounts within groups so that the bot can act as an admin. The bot can be used to send pre-made greetings to group members by pressing specific buttons.
If you accidentally get logged out of Telegram, you can quickly log back in using your Apple ID or Google ID without the verification SMS code. The latest platform update also includes 10 new sets of personalized emoji, along with icons created specifically for profile pictures.
