Telegram announces impressive 200 million monthly active users milestone, releases new update
Telegram has been gathering followers from other messenger services since its release and it looks like the number has reached an impressive milestone. The company behind the chat app has just announced that within the last 30 days, Telegram was used by no less than 200 million people.

Along with the announcement about this achievement, Telegram released updates for Android and iOS apps, which bring improvements to the way users can discover new stickers.

So, if you're using the last version of Telegram, you'll be able to take advantage of the new search for sticker sets option. Simply scroll up in the sticker panel and you'll find the new search field added in this update.

Another important enhancement is the ability to send multiple pictures to a recipient, as well as receive more than one picture from one of your contacts. Also, the iOS version of Telegram received a new Auto-Night Mode setting that allows users to automatically switch to the dark version of the interface. This specific feature was initially released on Android, but now iOS users can use it too.

Last but not least, iOS users also get support for text formatting in media captions, along with the ability to report individual messages in public entities. It's also worth mentioning that both Telegram apps have been optimized to make it lighter on battery usage.

What? Telegram does not even have servers in Russia and not partner with Russian authorities. You're misinformed

My bad, the founder is Russian, but the company is based in Dubai. I have updated the article.

Moreover, the founder is actually in conflict with the Russian government. Putin is going to block Telegram in Russia within two weeks.

I have yet to see anyone using it in my country :/ Which is a shame, I prefer it more than WA or Messenger, I would be glad to delete those two apps if my friends moved to Telegram

This is the perfect time to switch to Telegram. whatsapp is garbage and belongs to fb. telegram is one of the best solutions out there. The owner (yes he's russian) has his servers spread all over the planet and is currently in legal actions with his country Russia. He's fighting for privacy!
