Popular messaging app Telegram has announced a slew of new features. With this new feature, up to 1000 people will now be able to join a group video call on Telegram and will also allow users to send video messages. What’s more, Telegram has now enabled screen sharing with voice for all video calls, including one-on-one calls.
What Telegram said
Telegram said that it wants to increase this limit until all humans on earth are included in a group call. Hence, the company has enabled around 1000 participants to join the video call, while 30 users can broadcast video from both their camera and screen. Thus this feature will be especially useful for online lectures, seminars and even online music programs with multiple participants.
Telegram also updated its video feature
Along with the roll out of the new feature, Telegram has also updated its video messaging feature. Telegram says video messages are an instant way to check in or share your surroundings without adding another video to your gallery. You can send it to your contacts by simply tapping on the recording button in your chat box and the video will not be saved to your gallery.
Change the speed of video playback
At the same time, now you will be able to change the playback speed of the video sent to you through Telegram. The media player on the app now supports 0.5x, 1.5x and 2x playback speeds. So it can be used to fast-forward calls or watch videos in slow motion.
To change the video playback speed, tap the three dots on Android or the three horizontal dots on iOS while watching a video at full screen. Android users can also press and hold the 2X button while playing a voice or video message to switch between 0.5x, 1x, 1.5x and 2x playback speeds.
