Telegram's 10th update of 2023 adds improved calls with a colorful new design that use less of your phone's battery, a new vaporize effect when you delete messages, the largest bot update in Telegram's history – and more.
Telegram calls let users talk, turn on their camera or share their screen — they are protected by end-to-end encryption and available on every platform.
In this update, we have totally redesigned calls, adding new animations and beautiful backgrounds that change dynamically based on the call's status: ringing, active or ended. The new interface requires fewer resources than before, which means it saves battery life and works better on older devices.
We've also fixed hundreds of bugs and interface glitches – and added some improvements to call quality. More improvements to connection and audio quality are coming in 2024.
Last month we added an experimental vaporize animation on iOS for auto-deleted messages.
This impressive (and energy-efficient) animation is now available on both iOS and Android and plays whenever you delete any message.
Telegram's free bot platform lets developers integrate any kind of service into the Telegram ecosystem – from simple chat bots to powerful mini apps that can replace any website.
We're closing this year with the largest update to the Bot Platform in Telegram's history. Among dozens of new features, bots can now react to messages and manage reactions, quotes, and links, send replies to other chats or topics, and much more.
Developers can find all the changes to the Bot Platform in this epic changelog.
This update includes more new features, but we will tell you about them in January. In the meantime, call your friends to congratulate them – or make a bot to do it for you. See you very soon, next year!
