Instant messaging app Telegram introduced new features like multiple pinned messages, Live Location 2.0 and the easy music playlist sharing option. There is a new Channel Post Statistics feature that allows channel owners and administrators to check the performance of a specific shared message. In addition, a new set of Halloween stickers and animations has been made available to users on Android.
Channel and group admins can now pin multiple posts for their audiences at a time. The multiple pinned messages feature allows a member to tap and jump to different pinned messages. Now, it is no longer necessary to pin a single long post to draw members’ attention to important communications, as admins can split it into multiple smaller versions.
Telegram has enabled this feature for one-on-one chat in addition to groups and channels. There is a button available in the upper right corner of the chat section, users can click to see all the posts pinned together on a separate page.
With the Live Location 2.0 feature, Telegram users will receive an alert with a notification whenever the person who has approached and shared their location live with the respective user. This reminder can be set according to the distance, for example 0.5 km, 1 km, etc. The new version shows the direction of movement of users with a sharp arrow.
Channel Post Stats is another new feature for channel administrators, especially in the larger ones. With this, administrators can monitor the performance of specific shared messages in terms of views and the number of times they have been forwarded to other channels. What’s more,
