On iOS, the Attach attachment menu has been fully redesigned to catch up with the Android app. The in-app camera option is now integrated into the gallery and a new navigation bar gives quick access to photos, files, location sharing and more. The updated Files tab shows recently sent files and lets you search for them by name.

Telegram update: Phone Number Links

Anyone can create a unique @username from the Settings page – giving others an easy way to contact you via Search or your link without sharing your phone number. This update also allows you to share a direct link to your phone number that instantly opens a chat with you. The format for these links is, with the full phone number in international format. Also, the link will only work if your privacy settings let others find you by your phone number.

Telegram update: Live Streaming With Other Apps

According to a blog post by Telegram, with this update, you can broadcast from streaming tools like OBS Studio and XSplit Broadcaster – to add overlays and multi-screen layouts with ease, turning any Telegram channel into a professional TV Station. To stream from these tools, start a new Video Chat in your group or a new Live Stream in your channel, tap the 'Start With' button and enter the information found there into your streaming tool. For better quality, we recommend using software encoding (x264 in OBS). Your viewers will need to update their apps to the latest version to watch your stream.
