Apart from video calling, Telegram has begun testing floating chat head bubbles. The latest beta update also has this feature. The chat bubbles work with Android 11's native Bubbles API. For now, beta users will have to enable the debug option, according to XDA Developers report.

The new feature will come shortly after the instant messaging company increased the file share limit to 2GB from 1.5GB. It also rolled out a bunch of new features ranging from profile videos, improved people nearby and thumbnails to a detailed dashboard for group users.
