The day Telegram enters group video call it has finally arrived. In case you forgot, fine. Ihas been more than a year since the company announced it was working on the feature. But hey, it’s better late than never, isn’t it?
In his newis blogging, Telegram said the latest update to its app will allow group video calling on all devices, including tablets and computers. Telegram explained that while audio participants only in group calls are unlimited, currently only the first 30 people who join a group call can choose to turn on the video. However, the company has announced that this limit is expected to “grows quickly such as voice chats streaming games, live events, and even more. ”
Considering how long it took Telegram to launch group video calls in the first place – originally planned to launch the feature in 2020-we take it “quickly” with a grain of salt.
The company has also introduced a number of other innovations for its products group videos. You can pin a video, for example, if you want it to stay focused as more users join the call with the video. Users can also share their camera feed and its screen at the same time. Interestingly, Telegram has announced new noise suppression options, with a particular focus on food.
“We’ve improved noise suppression in voice chats to keep everyone’s audio clear and crisp, even when eating something crunchy. We’ve also added a toggle to disable noise suppression in the settings.”–for those times eating has meaning, ”Telegram said.
I mean, I imagine society has thought of this with virtual dinners or hangouts in mind. While I never actually ate a bag of fries while calling with friends, I certainly thought about it. No shame here. I’m not sure if I really feel like using food while I’m calling on video calls, but it’s nice to have options.
Group video calls weren’t the only thing Telegram has been launching in recent days. The company has also added live wallpapers to its app, which are wallpaper backgrounds that are algorithmically generated and move every time you send a message. You can also choose to create your own just break up and share your background with others. If you’re a bot fan, Telegram has added a menu button which allows you to navigate and send commands to do it is easier to communicate with them.
