And Telegram just got even better! 😍 ❤️
I totally love the improved video player, the new pinch to zoom feature, and the mini profiles for group voice calls. You can read about them (and also see a demo GIF/video) in the blog post I linked to.
I also really love the new Telegram Web; Web K and Web Z. The only difference that I've noticed on desktop, are the graphical aspects. Web K are more compact than Web Z. Again, what I have seen so far.
Pavel's own words on the 3 most common myths about Telegram.
As for encryption, I have encounted people on mainly reddit that states that Telegram stores everything in plaintext. This is false! Cloud chats do use MTProto 2.0 which is the exactly the same encryption method as for secret chats! The only difference between them is that cloud chats are stored on their servers.
