The future of Telegram messenger - Telegram X
Telegram was launched back in August of 2013, and since then has made its way onto every OS imaginable, including Linux and macOS
Telegram has announced its newest project - Telegram X, is making its way on Android. It's an entirely new app, written from scratch and it's main goal is to breathe new life into the messenger and reach new heights of speed, quality and ease of use. Telegram X was officially presented on Telegram's website:
Telegram X is coming with some new features while also overhauling some of the already existing ones. Swiping commands have been introduced for a quicker interaction with the app, examples being swiping between chats/calls on the main screen and swiping right on any message to bring the forwarding menu. Reworked music player and profile pages are also part of the package. A new mode has been introduced, giving you the option to remove chat bubbles and use the freed up space for better placement of the text and media in the messages instead.
The current version of Telegram is one of the most fully-fledged messengers, offering distinctive features such as self-destructing messages, the ability to edit already sent messages and lock chats with a password. Telegram has over 180 million users monthly, as of December 2017, making it one of the most popular messengers on the market.
Telegram X is already available for iOS, but has been pulled off the App Store due to a content-related issue and Android version will hit the Play Store next week, the company says.
