Currently, this update is only introduced in the android and beta versions 7.5.
Telegram beta version 7.5:
The second telegram has introduced a new security policy for world chats and groups. It is to enable the moderator to have a real command over the content being shared in the group. Now you can simply report the sexual activities, sexual violence, abuse, child pornography, and all type of SPAM to the host or moderator and as a result, the host can take action before the content gets viral.
Finally, the third update in the latest beta version 7.5 is the introduction of new gadgets. It will allow you to control and see Telegrams chats without opening the Telegram. One can simply read messages in the notification bar. You can also set up a floating dock notification for an important chat that you don’t want to miss.
