Besides these, the following improvements have been done to the app.

Soften skin

The media editor feature allows using a soften skin option for any photo or video you take with the front-facing camera.

Profile Videos

You can now upload a video to your profile – and choose any frame you like for your static profile picture in chats. This allows you to capture yourself in action and put in your profile page.

People Nearby

When people contact you via the People Nearby section, you will see how far away they are. And when you start a chat with someone nearby, Telegram will suggest a greeting sticker to break the ice.

Channel statistics

Channel statistics are now available for channels with 500 subscribers or more, and also for groups with 500 members or more. Soon, this will be available for groups with 100 members.
