Telegram has released a major application update with an index of 6.0. One of the main innovations is support for chat tabs. For several weeks, the messenger team tested the folders (they are also tabs) in Telegram for iOS, a few days ago they appeared in the beta version for Android. In each of the ten folders, you can put any chats, select only unread, only channels or only work conversations.
You can, and vice versa, exclude some items from the tab. The order of folders can be changed, the only thing is the tab “All chats” is always in the first place. Tabs will sync to all devices.
Tabs are configured in Settings> Folders. If there is no such menu, you will need to follow the link tg: //settings /folders from the browser (copy and paste manually). If the channel has more than 1000 subscribers, detailed statistics are available for administrators on the growth in the number of subscribers, channel entry sources, sent notifications, interactions, etc.
- Unlimited number of pinned at the top of the list of chats. Previously, it was possible to “stumble” only five conversations. Valid only in tabs, not in the general list.
- To hide chat from the general list, you can archive it with a swipe gesture to the side (on Android, if at least one additional tab is already activated, you will have to use the “Archive” icon, which appears in the menu after a long hold chat)
- New animated emojis: 🦠, 🤒, 😷, 🤕, 🤧, 🤢, 🤮, 🧼 or 🚑.
- The principle of operation is described here. In any chat, you can send emoji a dice, and it will always show a random value. Moreover, all chat participants will see the same thing – useful in disputes
Telegram 6.0 is available on the Google Play and App Store, and Telegram Desktop can be downloaded from the site.
