  • Telegram admins are set to have more control over the content they post.
  • There are new limitations on how viewers save or upload group content.
  • Some of the new features include the ability to share comments and ask questions on the platform.

This week, the privacy-focused Telegram app made big updates across most of its major supported platforms, adding new security settings and features to give administrators more control over how their content is consumed.

Creators can now more easily control how viewers save or upload their group’s content. Additionally, bulk delete options have been added for one-on-one chats. Some additional features have also been added to the system.

“With this update, we’re helping creators protect the content they post on Telegram and ensure it’s only available to their target audience,” according to an official Telegram blog post. “Group and channel owners who want to keep their members-only content can restrict the forwarding of messages from their chat, which also prevents screenshots and limits the ability to save media from posts.”

New features

Here’s what’s new in the latest version of Telegram for Windows:

  • Content creators can choose whether or not their groups and channels have the ability to save media, forward messages to other users, and forward messages to external contacts.
  • You can easily find specific messages by date in your one-on-one chats.
  • Share your feedback and ask questions in groups and channel feedback so your voice can be heard.
  • When a member of a community you’ve joined attempts to communicate with you through the chat system, their name appears at the top of the chat window.
  • Admins can now require users to complete certain tasks before they are allowed to join their affiliated communities.

Telegram started out as a privacy-focused messaging service, but has since evolved into a powerful communication platform supporting voice and video calls, groups, public streams, and live streaming.
