When I have written about WhatsApp at Leak there are several users who refer to Telegram as a better alternative. In fact, it is very complete and safe. It already had many people but when WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook it received even more. Now Telegram 6.1.0 has announced that it has surpassed the 400 million active user line, after the 300 million it had last year. In addition, it also released an update that comes with minor improvements in several different aspects. Thus, we have news in quizzes, a directory of stickers, a new menu of attachments for Android devices and more. In addition, they launched a competition for creators of educational tests with a prize of just 400 thousand Euros.
Telegram 6.1.0 is full of news on Android and iOS
The new quiz mode was introduced in Telegram in the update to version 5.14 in January. Now Telegram has improved it, giving the questionnaire creator the ability to add explanations that appear at the top as soon as the user answers a question, providing more context in the answer. There is also a new countdown animation for users to see how much time is left.
In a different field, Telegram has an impressive library of 20,000 stickers available to all users. However, looking for them can be tricky. Thus, Telegram created a stickers directory that contains all the news that were launched in the last 5 years. Telegram also added animated emojis from a target that work similarly to the animated data released in the last update.
Telegram for Android users are also entitled to a new menu of attachments in the conversation, where all sections are revealed at once. Users of the Telegram for macOS client will have access to the shared media folder directly on the new profile pages.
In the 400 million celebration publication, Telegram says that there has been an increase in the need for a fast and secure group video conversion service, while the world is fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. I remember that Telegram is one of the few instant messaging services that does not support this type of conversation. However, everything could change soon. Telegram has finally promised to bring its users secure group video calls in 2020.
