Telegram has recently launched its newest update to improve its voice chat features. The 2.0 update resembles the Clubhouse app, a drop-in audio chat platform where people can talk and listen in real-time.
At the moment, Clubhouse can only give its service to iPhone users, but Android users could use the app soon since the company is in development to support the latter platform.
Telegram Just Keeps on Improving as a Messaging App
Gadgets Now reported that Whatsapp is also a strong competitor of Telegram. However, when WhatsApp changed its privacy policies, some users grew doubtful of what it can do since their information, such as transaction data and contact numbers, can now be shared.
Now, Telegram is focused on developing its voice chat support alongside the new features that users can test. Also in the app's latest update, there will be no limitation when it comes to the number of participants in the channel.
From recorded chats to speaker and listener links, you might want to check and try these new voice chat features in your Telegram.
Telegram Voice Chats 2.0 Features and How to Use Them
Recording Chats Now Made Easier
According to Livemint, you can now save your conversations from voice chats through audio recording. If you have followers and you want them to inform them about your upcoming event, you can also publish the recordings.
To use this feature, go to the Saved Messages to access the audio file after you are done with the recording. to know if a chat is recorded, you can see the red light beside the audio title.
'Raise Hand' Mechanics
In physical meetings, participants can raise their hands to ask a question to the speaker. The same feature works in Telegram in the context of the virtual discussion.
There are also times when participants need to mute their mic so there will be no interruptions that could distract speakers. Now, listeners could easily alert the speaker by enabling the "raise hand," so they could talk to the admins.
Furthermore, the participant's information, such as hobbies and favorite things can be seen by the admins. This will make it easier for them to suggest a solution to the listener's questions.
Speaker and Listener Links
Creating invite instant links is now possible through the newest voice chat update. Two links can be made separately: one for the speaker and another for the listener.
If you are worrying about unmuting some participants in the server, there's no need for that anymore. Instead, you can create a different link for another community.
It's also easier for the users to see what topics will be discussed in the chat room since the optional titles can be placed before they enter the channel. For public figures, this feature will be suitable for them since this could prevent huge attention calls when it comes to their accounts.
Android Swipe Gestures
Through gestures, Android users are only one swipe away from doing a variety of tasks like deleting messages, muting other users, pinning announcements, and others. All they have to do is to swipe left in the chat list.
Similarly, iOS users can also perform a similar assignment, but it will depend on the user's swiping.
