Telegram has increased the number of people who can participate in a group video call. One of the fastest growing messaging platforms Telegram now allows up to 1000 viewers on a single video call with number of broadcasters being steady at 30. The update brings new features such as allowing users to share their screens with sound for all video calls, including one-on-one calls. Telegram has also improved the way users consume video content and send video messages. Apart from these, Telegram has added a few neat tricks to its Android and iOS apps like screen sharing to increase engagement.
One of the most significant additions to Telegram includes the ability to conduct video calls with up to 1,000 viewers. The number of people who can broadcast their video is still 30 as introduced in a previous update for the instant messaging app. The company said in its blog post that it is working on increasing the limit of the number of people who can join a group video call even further.
Telegram is also updating its video messages feature to give it a higher resolution. Users will also be able to tap on video messages to expand them to a larger viewer. Further, tapping on an expanded message will pause it and give users the opportunity to fast forward or rewind the selected video message. While recording, the audio on the device will keep playing and will be recorded in the video message.
