Following the privacy-policy debacle by WhatsApp last year, its well-known competitor Telegram became one of the popular messaging apps in the market. As a result, the company is quickly adding new features to its platform to better the user experience. Recently, Telegram rolled out an update with support for scheduling voice chats on the platform. Now, as per a recent sneak peek, it seems like Telegram is planning to add group video calling soon.
The announcement came from founder and CEO Pavel Durov himself on his Telegram channel. Durov shared a short video showcasing the feature along with key details of the upcoming feature. You can check out the video and Durov’s post from the link on the Telegram app on your mobile device.
As per Durov, Telegram will be adding a “video dimension” to its voice chat feature with an update in May. This will allow users in a voice chat session to turn on their cameras to experience a group video call on Telegram. And as per the sneak-peek video shared by Durov, the UI looks pretty neat.
