What is Telegram?

Telegram is an instant messaging app which is focused on speed and the privacy of its users. True to its metaphorical ancestor who also inspired the name, the messenger is minimal and focuses on conveying message clearly.

In telegram you can change and customize your messaging experience and the interface as well. The number of its active users is over a 100 million and about 15 billion texts are sent everyday by Telegram.

Telegram is free of cost and doesn’t cost you a single penny or come up with a hidden cost to ensure you privacy or give you a security or privacy threat in case you don’t pay the amount.

Telegram can said to be a good place to be no matter what reasons you have. Whether you would like to be a bit distant from the entire buzz caused by WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger chats or you are just worried about the privacy of your texts or you are simply just done with the stupid interrupting ads which you will find almost everywhere online.

Features of Telegram app

This Telegram app, stand alone has a huge number of features that are pretty amazing in them. With Telegram you can create groups with up 5k members. Documents of any type can be sent, texts can be destructed on their own if you set a timer, or even build your own tools on their API.

So here is a list of some cool features provided by this Telegram app that will leave you in awe and plus help you to make use of this app more efficiently and make the most of it.

Here you go!

Make you own GIF

Creating your own GIF and sharing it with your friends and family has been made a lot easier by the Telegram app.

If you are in need of creating your own GIF all you need to do is first click on the “Attach file” icon and you reaction will be recorded after you click on the Video option.

Tap the Save button after you are done recording your video and then later it can be trimmed according to your choice.

The video will be automatically looped into an animated GIF, and then you can share it with the person you are chatting.

Edit your photos within the app

Do you want to make your picture more appealing? The problem is solved by the Telegram app as it doesn’t even bind you to install another photo editor app because you can do all the editing inside the Telegram app itself.

The user friendly interface makes it very simple to do so. If you want to edit the photos right before you sent them all you would be required to do is tap on the Attach file option and then go to the Camera or Gallery option.

You will be taken to the photo editor after you have chosen your desired photo. Here you can make use of all the given options such as Crop the picture, Adjust the color, exposure, contrast and curves. Also, it allows you to draw and add text to your photo.

Secret chats

If you are someone who like to have late night conversations and gets high on sleep and doesn’t even remember what you said last night, then this feature is just for you.

With this awesome feature you texts will destruct on their own in a secret chat after you have set a timer for it, just in case you would not like to recall what nonsense you talked about last night and get embarrassed.

So in order to set the self-destruction timer simply swipe left on the app’s homepage and tap “New Secret Chat”. Now “Add Recipients”, and tap on timer icon on the top and select the time duration.

That’s it! After the set period of time your texts will be deleted on their own.

Hide your last seen from certain people

When it comes down to letting people see when you last online or in other words your Last Seen, telegram has some very advanced option for it.

A specific person can be allowed or blocked by seeing your last seen. To do so, tap on the settings icon and go to the Privacy and Security after that.

Tap on the “Last Seen” and select who can see your last seen time and “Add Exceptions” like “Never Share with” or “Always Share with”.

Turn off the notification of text preview

Message preview is a crucial option because they appear on the lock screen and notification shade. You would not even know and someone is going to read your personal texts without even actually opening the app. I would find that creepy of course anyone like me would too.

In order to do so, tap on the “Settings” option and click on “Notifications and Sounds”. Now you will see the “Message Preview” and “Popup Notifications” followed by 4 options. Enable or disable them according to how you like it or what you prefer.

Add stickers

Stickers and emoticons have become a compulsory ingredient in making your conversations lighter and funnier; these days. Telegram lets you add full sticker packs via third party sites, Reddit threads and third party apps.

If you want to make use of this feature, all you would need to do is tap on the Sticker icon present on the lower left after going to a personal chat box.

You will be shown dozens of stickers and masks from which you can choose from. In order to add stickers, just click on the “Add” button. Once added, you can preview them by press-holding on the stickers.
