Telegram has rolled out group video calling feature, finally. It’s the only missing feature on Telegram that other messaging apps have had for a long time, but that changes now. Users can now turn voice chats into video chats with one single tap. The chats are end-to-end encrypted, making users’ privacy intact.
Not only has it added the group video calling feature, but the screen-sharing options are now also available alongside enhanced noise suppression. The ability to transit from a voice call to a video call is a step up for Telegram, making users ready for online classes, business meetings, and family gatherings.
The video call is activated when a user taps the camera icon located at the bottom of the screen. Desktop and tablets tend to go fullscreen while in the call, making use of the larger screen real estate. For the time being, the first 30 participants who join the voice chat will be allowed to take part in the video chat. Telegram promises to increase the number in the coming days.
