WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned chat app, has been mired in turmoil after
it revealed improvements to its latest privacy policies earlier this year.
As many WhatsApp users leave the app over privacy issues, Telegram, which is one of the strongest chat applications out there, has seen a huge increase in downloads.
Although Telegram is still rich in functionality, the software looks
like it will soon get a bunch of new features. The new Telegram beta for Android adds some helpful features, as found by the people at TestingCatalog, which are expected to find their way to the stable channel in the immediate future.
For joining groups, Telegram Beta v7.5 implements QR codes, enabling
users to be welcomed to a party using QR codes. They will be able to search the code to enter the party or channel until you exchange a QR code with Telegram users.
You may now allow invite ties expire after a specified amount
of time or a certain number of occasions after they have been used.
If you have the latest Telegram beta enabled on your devices, by moving over to Community Settings in the app, you will be able to invite members by QR codes and handle invite connections.
In addition, the new beta makes it easy to flag material to Telegram moderators in groups or networks. In addition to spam, harassment, child exploitation, pornography, or’ other’ tweets will also be identified. Another recent addition is the option to monitor several comments at once.
Two widgets are now introduced by Telegram beta v7.5: a 2×2 edition that displays up to four thumbnails and a bigger 5×2 version with tiny samples of your chats and channels that you choose.
Although the widgets are automatically filled by default with your most recent chats, when you connect them to your home screen, you can select your own favourite chats.
