Telegram’s latest update brings major improvements to the voice chat feature that rolled out to users late last year. The new version, which Telegram calls Voice Chats 2.0, extends voice chat support to channels and introduces some new features to improve the voice chat experience.
New Telegram Voice Chat features were first spotted in a beta update earlier this month. Now the features are finally rolled out with the latest stable version. Following the last update, channel administrators will be able to host voice chats. To do this, admins will need to open the profile of any group or channel, tap the three-dot menu icon, and then select the new ‘Start Voice Chat’ option.
The update also brings a new recorded chats feature which will allow group and channel admins to record the audio of voice chats and post them to the group / channel for members who missed the live event. . Saved chats will be available in saved messages.
Additionally, Telegram voice chats benefit from a new Raise Hand feature to help muted participants easily indicate that they want to speak. Admins will see a new animation every time a participant uses the Raise Hand option. Tapping on it will open a pop-up window with an option for the participant to speak, open a chat, or delete the participant.
The update also brings an option to help admins share invitation links to voice conversations. The setting will allow admins to create separate links for speakers and listeners. Admins will also have the option to add titles to voice conversations to help members see the topic of the conversation before joining.
Finally, Telegram’s latest update also includes an option to help users choose their personal account or channel account while joining voice chats. Along with these voice chat improvements, Telegram is getting a few more features with the latest update. You can read all about them by following this link.
