If Apple sets trends in smartphones and other smart technology, then Telegram is in the world of applications. The messenger is updated every month and gets more and more new features. In my subjective opinion, innovations should be in great demand among developers of other applications: the possibility of customization should also be in programs, ranging from clients for social networks to mobile banking. Why is that? Well, first of all, it’s very convenient. Moreover, over the past year, Telegram has accumulated about a dozen convenient functions. We talk about the most-most, which would be useful in other applications.
Telegram notification sounds
Now you can put any sound or voice message on notifications
The Telegram application received another update not so long ago. One of the coolest innovations was the ability to set custom sounds – for example, voice messages up to 5 seconds long. Surprisingly, such a feature appears only now when users are slowly abandoning ringtones, but the feature would be very useful to iPhone owners.
Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to distinguish which application the notification came from by familiar sounds. A conditional barking of a dog or a friend’s laughter would be an excellent sound notification, say, from a WhatsApp chat or a banking application, when a long-awaited push about a salary transfer arrives.
How to log out of Telegram remotely?
If I forget to log out from the PC, I could always end the session from the phone.
One of Telegram’s most important security features is the ability to log out of your account remotely. Roughly speaking, if you left work but did not turn off the PC running the messenger, you can always close it from your smartphone: to do this, go to Telegram on iPhone to the appropriate item and end the session.
Such a function would be useful not only for cloud storage but also for typical banking applications. For example, when you gave your smartphone to someone or lost it, you could end the session on the device with one click instead of changing the account password, which is sometimes difficult to remember, even with a security question.
Hidden text in Telegram
Hidden text in Telegram is ideal for personal conversations: colleague Rakhmatullin will not let you lie!
You know how dangerous it is sometimes to send messages in clear text. Hidden text in Telegram is one of the most important innovations that was missing. Moreover, the function has been in iMessage for a long time, but it became relevant only in Pavel Durov’s messenger. Hidden text, like messages sent without sound, is very lacking in social networking applications and the same WhatsApp, which has been innovating for a long time.
Here is such convenient attachment navigation provided in Telegram
In one of the updates, the Media Calendar appeared in Telegram – a sort of analog of Memories in popular social networks. Thus, you can search not only photos but also videos. Agree that it would be convenient to have such convenient navigation in all applications. Yes, in the same WhatsApp, iMessage or Safari! This would help a lot: you would not have to constantly climb into attachments in search of the desired video or photo.
Registration in Telegram
Change of appearance grouped and simplified, but I prefer not to knock down the settings.
I’m not the biggest fan of in-app skin changes, but Telegram has the most thorough and detailed theme settings. Sometimes, however, something goes wrong, and you start to get confused in your parameters – in any case, this was the case two or three months ago.
But already in the latest versions, the developers have put things in order in the design settings and grouped them. The color of the message blocks, background accent and other additional options are missing in almost 9 out of 10 applications that each of us uses daily. Agree; it would be very convenient to customize the application’s design to suit your mood. So far, very few applications have such parameters, but the same VK is actively working on this.
Navigation in Telegram
This is how you can conveniently return to the desired chat in the Telega.
Another small but serious advantage of Telegram is that it is impossible to get confused: how often do you have situations when you go from one page to another or third and then cannot find the original one? So, a convenient navigation system was added in one of the Telegram updates. By holding the “Back” button, you can get a list of previous chats where you were. This can only be found in Safari and other browsers, but other applications lag behind. Because of this, you don’t understand which page or chat you started from.
