Flexible Location Sharing

Moreover, Telegram has streamlined location sharing, allowing users to share their whereabouts for extended periods or indefinitely. Users can set alerts to notify them when someone arrives at a shared location, offering greater flexibility and peace of mind.

For group administrators, managing groups has become more efficient, with the option to perform multiple moderation actions on messages at once and restrict user permissions as needed. Additionally, channel admins can now limit the number of reaction types per post, fostering a more controlled environment.

Exclusive Premium Features

Premium users can enjoy exclusive features, such as including animated and custom emoji in polls, viewing stories anonymously, and experiencing an ad-free environment while still being able to view their own ads.

Other notable improvements include forwarded messages displaying the profile picture of the user who forwarded them, Instant View support for websites on the Desktop app, and a feature allowing channel owners to earn rewards by sharing ad revenue with Telegram.
