Telegram, the instant messaging app owned by Russia-based VKontakte founder Pavel Durov, has added new features and improvements to its Android application in an update that was released on Tuesday. Telegram 4.2(Telegram更新) now allows users to switch between chats without losing the current scroll position, thanks to a feature called running chat. It also has a picture-in-picture mode for watching videos continuously while using other applications on their Android devices.
Telegram has released an update
Telegram is a messaging app that focuses on security, speed, and platforms. It’s available for Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Telegram Web, but not for desktop OSes like Windows or macOS.
The update added running chat, picture-in-picture, and new animation features. The “running conversation” feature allows you to see who else is in your group or channel so you can drop in and out of the conversation at any time. Picture-in-picture lets you watch videos while browsing other content on your phone or tablet — just tap the video icon to pop it out into its window (just like when watching movies with Netflix). To go back to watching full-screen videos again all you have to do is tap on them again (or tap anything else!). For quicker access as well as fun animations when replying to messages or sending photos/videos there are emoji reactions (you can find these under More Actions)
A new feature called running chat allows users to switch between chats
The new feature named Running Chat allows users to switch between chats without losing the current scroll position. In other words, you can open multiple group chats and private conversations at once and switch between them whenever you want just like how WhatsApp lets users do it.
This feature is powered by Telegram’s new Ticker, which displays updates from channels, bots, and public groups in real-time.
You can also pin a chat with a single tap so that it stays on top of your screen until you unpin it again or exit Telegram altogether.
Allow continuous video viewing when using other apps on Android devices
Picture-in-picture mode allows users to watch videos in a floating window while using other applications. The recently updated app also has a picture-in-picture mode, which allows watching videos continuously while using other applications on their Android devices.
The feature is very useful for those times when you are busy with another task and want to continue watching a video without multitasking or pausing the video for too long. You can resize the floating window and move it anywhere on your screen so that it doesn’t get in your way as you work or play with other apps.
Main screen animation, media preview, and other functions
Telegram(tg中文注册) 4.2 also features improved animations of the Home screen, media previews, and more.
Let’s start by taking a look at the new Picture in Picture (PiP) mode:
You can now watch videos in PiP mode with any video chat app opened alongside it. Your friends will see incoming and outgoing calls as they happen, so you don’t need to worry about interrupting them while they’re working on something or vice versa!
