What you need to know

  • Telegram’s latest improvements include the ability to customize your message alerts using any sound.
  • The app has also rolled out custom mute durations and more increments for the auto-delete timer.
  • Its picture-in-picture mode on Android now lets you change the size of its window player.
  • There are new animated food emojis in chat and a refreshed interface for changing your phone number.

Although Telegram is arguably less popular than WhatsApp, the team behind one of the best messaging apps deserves a pat on the back for releasing new updates almost on a monthly basis. The latest round of enhancements is now available, and it gives you more control over your Telegram experience.

Telegram now lets you take more control of your notification sound by setting any sound as your message alert. This means you can now make notification tones out of your favorite music or even memes. A voice message can also be used as a tone and assigned to any single chat or group of chats.
