Through the official blog, Telegram informs us that the twelfth update of the year has arrived and it is certainly not one of the trivial ones. Users can in fact take advantage of a long series of innovations starting from reactions to messages – already spotted a few days ago – passing from automatic translation for those in other languages, from themed QR codes to the possibility of hiding parts of the text, so as to avoid any spoiler.
The reactions are not unprecedented, of course, but Telegram has chosen to bring them to its app in a personal way, accompanied by some dedicated animations. You can send a quick reaction, such as a thumbs-up, or select one of the available ones. They will always be active in private chats, while in groups and channels it will be at the discretion of the administrators whether to make them available or not.
The option that allows you to hide a part of the text does not require big introductions : it happens to everyone who wants to talk about a movie or a TV series that maybe only someone in a group of friends has already watched, and to be able to hiding a portion of what is written is quite useful to avoid creating enemies. From now on it will be possible to do this simply by selecting the words you want to hide, then press on the relative option to activate the function. Obviously, the hidden text will not even be seen in the preview of the chat list and in the notifications.
Telegram also adds a new button which, after selecting a message, allows you to see its automatic translation . From the options you can choose in which language to read the translated text and it is also possible to exclude all those languages that you are fluent in, so as not to see the “Translate” option appear.
A handful of extra features have also been introduced with the update, as reported at the beginning. Personalized QR codes allow you to customize the look of any QR that points to a public contact, group, channel or bot you want to share. There are also interactive versions of some of the most used emoticons, available only in 1 to 1 chats. And finally, Mac users will have new redesigned context menus.
In short, many small and big news to make the wishes for the new year more fun and have a greater range of options to express yourself. The update has already been available for a few minutes, so you can run to download it and start trying the additions.
