In addition, Telegram users will get the ability to choose venues more easily when sharing your location.

As mentioned, the big feature that comes with this update is the ‘Send When Online’ feature that delivers messages to a recipient when they come online. This new option has been added to Scheduled Messages and is another interesting addition to the instant messaging app. Most commonly, this option is only available if you are allowed to see your recipient’s online status.

With this update, location sharing has been updated, and users can now tap a place directly on the map to select it, rather than scrolling through a list of all options. 

There’s also a new search function that allows you to easily jump between messages containing the desired keyword. Tapping the bottom bar will switch to the list view if you want to see all the results on one page. Telegram will also now remember your last position when resuming playback of audio files longer than 20 minutes.

Coming to the platform based updates, Telegram for Android gets additional new features like quick access to the night mode switch, and Maps also get Night Mode support. The update also packs sleek new animations and lets you now select a portion of the message text to copy or share, instead of only the full text.

On iOS, Telegram brings the ability to adjust the font size throughout the app, faster switching of accounts, and it now also supports external browsers for opening links. The Storage Usage page has been redesigned to quickly find the settings you‘re looking for, and a new clear cache shortcut has also been added when the user selects multiple texts in a group or channel.

To get all these features and changes on your Telegram, update your Telegram app now by downloading the latest version of Telegram from Google Play Store and App Store.
