Telegram Messenger Gets Improved Replies, Stickers and More

Popular cross-platform messaging app Telegram has just been updated to version 4.3, bringing a bunch of new and improved features, including new mentions and replies, ability to create and upload stickers as well as a redesigned ‘Invite Friends’ section. Starting now, whenever somebody replies to you or mentions you in a group, you’ll notice this straight away by the ‘@’ badge in the chats list.


This allows you to instantly respond to new replies/mentions in a group by tapping the new ‘@’ button when inside the chat. Similarly, anyone can now create and upload stickers on Telegram. Thousands of new stickers are now being added to the platform each day. Large groups with 100 members and more can also choose an official sticker set for all the members of the group to see and use.


Telegram has also received a completely redesigned ‘Invite Friends’ section. If you invite any your contacts not already on Telegram to join, they’ll be welcomed by a bunch of Telegram veterans among their contacts. 

As always with new releases, we’ve included several small goodies you may also like:

  • Twitch videos are now supported in the Telegram in-app player, so you can watch Twitch streams in Picture-in-Picture mode while chatting with your friends.
  • When on a Telegram voice call, you can now check the signal strength thanks to the new indicator.
  • On iOS, you can edit any photo you pasted directly to a chat from clipboard before sending.
  • On Android, when forwarding a message, you can long tap to select multiple recipients.
  • On Android, when viewing photos in Shared Media, you can go to the place in chat where the photo was posted.
  • On Android, if you have many new messages in many active chats, synchronization will happen much, much faster.
