Telegram's group video calling feature, which it launched in June, has been expanded to accommodate a lot more people. A group video conference may now be held with up to 1,000 individuals using the latest version of the messaging app. While the number of participants who can transmit video from their camera or screen is limited to 30, an additional 970 people can watch and listen.
When the functionality was first introduced, Telegram stated that it hoped to increase the number of people who could join a group chat as it expanded its voice and video calls to accommodate live events.
The business stated in its new announcement that it will continue to raise the limit. Telegram's video messaging feature has also been improved, allowing users to watch videos in higher resolution. Users can now share their screen with sound and set their messages to auto-delete after one month, rather than the prior options of one day or one week, during one-on-one video chats.
When users zoom in on photographs and videos, Telegram's redesigned media editor reduces the brush width, allowing them to create finer details.
Other new features also include password reset options and animated emoji. The latest version of the Android app includes support for 0.5x, 1.5x, and 2x playback rates, as well as new sending animations.
Meanwhile, iOS users will be able to use a new in-app camera that supports all of their device's zoom settings, as well as forward messages to multiple recipients.
