Telegram has released more ways to use emoji to express your feelings. Infinite Reactions, Emoji Statuses, and more, here is all you need to know.
App updates bring a lot of new features and even sometimes fixes for earlier bugs to give a seamless user experience. Telegram on Friday rolled out an update bringing more ways to use emoji to express your feelings. Features like infinite reactions and emoji statuses have been added to the application. Informing about the same Telegram said, “Telegram’s previous update revolutionized emoji, adding an open platform for creating custom animated emoji. This update gives you even more ways to use these new emoji to express how you’re feeling – with infinite reactions and emoji statuses.” Here is all you need to know.
1. Telegram update: Infinite Reactions
All Telegram users now have access to dozens of reactions – including those that were previously only available with Telegram Premium. It can be known that the reactions you use frequently will show up at the top. The app further informed that premium users can pick reactions from an infinite selection of custom emoji. They can now even attach up to 3 reactions per message. Also, these changes to reactions are currently available in groups and 1-on-1 chats. Group admins can control whether custom reactions may be used in their groups.
2. Telegram Update: Emoji Statuses
Premium users can now add an animated emoji status that is displayed next to their name – to quickly let everyone know how they are feeling or what they are doing. This custom status takes the place of your Premium Badge in the chat list, in your profile and in groups. You can set one of 7 standard statuses that change their color to match different Telegram themes – or choose from an infinite number of custom emoji. Popular suggestions for working, sleeping, traveling and more will be shown at the top.
All you will have to do is tap the Premium badge at the top of your chat list or go to Settings to change your status. Press and hold an emoji to set a status for a specific duration. Also, anyone can use Telegram’s open emoji platform to upload custom packs with unique art styles and characters for Telegram Premium users.
3. Telegram Update: Improved Login Flow
Users who log out and log back in frequently can now receive login codes through their email address or using Sign in with Apple or Sign in with Google. Signing up or logging in to Telegram on iOS is now even more easy with new interfaces and animations that are already known to the Android users.
4. Telegram Update: New Username Links
All @usernames on Telegram have their own t.me/username links, making it easy to share your public profile, group or channel anywhere on the internet. Every username now has a new unique link format – username.t.me – for those who want to emphasize their name (or have trouble finding the / key).
5. Telegram Update: Prioritize Downloads on Android
Media and files that are actively downloading can be managed in the ‘Downloads’ tab of Search or by tapping the Downloads Android icon that appears in your chat list. You can now press and hold any items in the list to reorder them and change their priority – downloading the top file first. This feature was already available on iOS – press and hold an item in the Downloads iOS list and select ‘Prioritize Download’.
6. Telegram Update: Android Goodies
Telegram has added new animations for opening, closing and changing media on Android. Those on Android 13 or newer can choose a thematic Telegram icon that will automatically match your phone’s dark mode settings and accent color.
