Popular instant messaging platform Telegram, a few days ago added a number of eye-catching features to their feature collection, such as Mini Profiles, Payments 2.0, and Scheduled Voice Chat. However, the messaging app is not stopping here, this time a popular feature of WhatsApp is going to be added to their platform. If all goes well, Telegram users will get the benefit of group video calling from next month, i.e. May. Not only that, recently Pavel Durov, the founder of the Telegram app, said that by adding video support, they are planning to make the app’s intermediate voice chat section even better.
Needless to say, if Telegram implements their video support plans, video conferencing platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, in addition to WhatsApp, will become obsolete. However, Durov says the video support option will be added to the upper part of the voice chat. As a result, once this feature is rolled out, users will be able to enjoy the benefits of video calling with a single tap.
In addition, Durav said that since the upcoming feature also has the option to share the screen with the facility of group video calling, he has not yet decided what to name this video support feature. In addition, the feature is being designed to have noise control options, along with improved encryption and desktop and tablet support. So, in a word, a modern video conferencing tool has all the programs that must be present. This new feature has been developed by Durover developer team.
As we mentioned earlier, Telegram has recently introduced two new web versions, one of which is expected to replace the previous web client. In that case, Durov Telegram promises to make the video calling feature available to web users as well. Lastly, let me inform the Telegram users that since the feature is currently in process, it is not yet known when it may roll-out.
