Telegram has launched a new feature for creative people

Written by Gloria Towolawi

The team of developers of the popular Telegram messenger has launched a new feature – the ability to fully customize background images in chat rooms.


Users can now search for “wallpapers” online, add effects and share their results with friends through links. Supports blur and blur effects in motion. Android-powered devices have additional effects in the built-in editor.


You can also set any color as a background, use a repeating pattern and adjust its intensity. As before, it is possible to use any photo from the gallery for the background in chats.


The new version of Telegram for Android is already available for download and installation. IOS is experiencing temporary problems in the App Store, and some devices may experience difficulty updating.
