Telegram has launched new features including in-app Video Editor, two-step verification, animated stickers, speaking GIFs and more. The video enhancement feature will enable users to tweak videos in just two taps with dozens of parameters like saturation, brightness, etc. with a zoom-in option while drawing. Animated stickers can now be added to the photos and videos while editing which can later turn into GIFs, as well. The app has also added new attractive speaking GIFs for user chat experience enhancement.
Moreover from a data security perspective, it has introduced Two-step verification for their users. Simply anyone can click on the Privacy and Security option to enable this Two-step verification security lock. Users need to set-up a new password by entering it twice followed a password hint. This feature would be responsible to protect the app data and securing accounts from cloning in future. Now onward if this Two-step authentication password is enabled on a given account, anyone trying to log-in from a new device that person needs to know the password, along with the OTP.
The Telegram messenger has also provided a new Cache memory management tool directly to clean-up the storage as per the user requirement. The user need to go to the settings > Data and Storage > Storage usage to see how much storage is used by the files from Telegram divided into segments like Photos, Documents, Music, Voice/ Video messages, Animated stickers and other files. They can also select on a scale from when they want to keep their previous data ranging from 3 days to forever. This will only delete unassessed files which can also be re-downloaded later from the Telegram cloud. A user can also clear the local database where texts of cached messages will be compressed to save space on the internal disk.
Flexible chat management folders, and a couple of new functional animations have been re-introduced for smooth and better user experience.
