Telegram’s big breakthrough: 100 million new users per month and transferring history from WhatsApp and other messengers



A couple of days ago, the Telegram team accidentally launched and quickly recalled a significant update of the messenger for iOS. Now Telegram 7.4 has been officially released for Android and iOS.

In honor of the launch, the developers also boasted of another achievement – in January, 100 million new users began to use the messenger.

The main innovation of Telegram 7.4 was the very expected by many opportunity – the transfer of history from other messengers. You can transfer messages, photos, videos and documents from other applications to Telegram – for example, WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk. This works with both private chats and groups.

To transfer a chat from WhatsApp for iOS, just open a page with information about a contact or group, click “Export chat” and select Telegram from the “Share” menu. On Android devices, inside a WhatsApp chat, you need to tap? > More> Export Chat and then select Telegram from the Share menu.

Another Telegram innovation concerns privacy. Now users can delete secret chats, created groups without a trace, as well as clear entries in the call history on both sides – both from the sender and from the recipients. Telegram servers do not save information about deleted chats and entries in the call history, so this data will disappear forever.

Voice chats that are currently active in groups are now shown at the top of the calls tab. In voice chats, it became possible to adjust the volume for individual participants. Settings changed by group administrators are applied to all listeners at once.

In the music player (Android only), by clicking on the artist’s name, you can go to the list of his tracks from all user chats. The sound now fades out and appears when you stop and start playing. The buttons “next track” and “previous track” can be pressed to fast forward or rewind.

You can greet newly registered friends by sending them a special sticker.

In addition, support for visually impaired tools (TalkBack for Andoid and VoiceOver for iOS) has been improved, and new animations have been added to the Android app interface.
