A Public Notice About the TON Blockchain and Grams
The new Telegram update – our 12th this year – has arrived, just in time to say goodbye to 2019.
In this new version (and new decade) say hello to verifiable builds, theme editor 2.0, send when online and plenty more.
The code of Telegram apps has always been open source, but starting today, you can verify the apps you download use the exact same code as we post on GitHub.
New year, new you, new look – you can now add custom gradients to your backgrounds and messages, explore more predefined color schemes and add detail with some of the new background patterns.
Scheduled Messages have a new option – Send When Online. Save yourself the guesswork of when your friend will wake up, and instead have your message arrive the next time they open the app.
When sharing a location, you can now easily select venues on your map instead of scrolling through a list. That's not even mentioning the new night mode maps to help you navigate in the dark.
Android and iOS got plenty more in their stockings and under the tree. Read the full blog to see all the changes, including a Quick Day/Night Toggle, Share Sheet Settings and Improved Search along with tons of new animations and redesigned interfaces.
Happy update to all, and to all a Happy New 2020: https://telegram.org/blog/verifiable-apps-and-more
The latest update brings scheduled messages, better themes and more privacy for those who need it most.
Holding down the send button now gives the option to schedule a message. Choose the date and time, and let Telegram take care of the delivery. Set a reminder for yourself by scheduling something in your Saved Messages.
Cloud Themes allow you to create a unique combination of theme, wallpaper and accent color to quickly share across platforms and update for all who use it.
Keeping your phone number confidential has become more universal with the new setting Who Can Find Me By My Number. This additional layer of privacy prevents even people who add your contact information to their device from being able to match your profile to your number.
Animated emoji were expanded to include 😁, 😧, 😡, 💩, 😢 and 😮.

If you see any other website that claims to publish news or announcements on behalf of our team, it is most likely a scam.
Telegram 4.7 has arrived just in time for the holidays!
On Android, this update makes it possible to log in to multiple accounts and quickly switch between them. Consider it a New Year's gift to your alter ego – or your dark side?
Speaking of dark sides: on iOS, the new version brings theme support, including two versions of a night mode.
Starting with 4.7, both mobile platforms also support swipe-to-reply gestures.
Read all about version 4.7 on our blog:
Telegram v.4.6 is here! You can now set up your auto-download preferences with granular precision (find the new options in Settings > Data & Storage). For example, always download pictures from your mother on any connection, but only auto-download media from groups when you're on WiFi.
iOS users will enjoy the new option to swipe left on any message to quickly reply to it.
For everyone else, we've also added support for albums to Secret chats, full support for MTProto 2.0, and the option to only use p2p in calls with contacts (see Settings > Privacy & Security).
Link previews for Instagram posts and tweets with multiple photos will now show all the media as an album, like this:
We saw some groups approach the 20K limit and increased it again. Telegram groups can now have up to 30,000 members.Читать полностью…

We've just launched Instant View for 2,274 more websites following the end our first contest.

You can now search for messages from a specific group member and add emoji to your messages by typing ':' + keyword. Get Telegram 4.2.1 for iOS and 4.2.2 for Android these two new features.
Here's how the new message search works:
Supergroups can now have up to 10,000 members! We've added members search to supergroups to help you find people in these newly massive haystacks.
Admins also get new tools for managing the increasing group populations: creators can appoint admins with granular rights (add members, remove members, add new admins, etc.). We've also added partial restrictions for members (read-only, no stickers etc.) and temporary bans.
The new event log (admin-only) will help you see all service actions taken by members and admins of a channel or supergroup in the last 48 hours – with search and filters.
On top of this, we've added improved sharing to our iOS app, Android pay support to our Android app and many smaller quality-of-life improvements throughout.

If you lost your stickers for a few minutes, don't worry! They're all back now.
If you still don't see them, this may be related to caching — reloading the app will help. Alternatively, just add a new pack. Try this one:
For dessert, we've made Instant Views into a platform. And now we're launching a $200,000 crowdsourcing competition. Join us in our quest to make the entire internet available in the Instant View format.
Also, don't forget to check out the new settings: different styles and fonts and an auto-night mode for Instant View pages.
Telegram 4.0 is here — and it's not just one, but THREE major updates all at once!
For starters, check out the new ultra-slick video messages and meet Telescope, our new video service where anyone can view video messages from public channels — even if they don't have a Telegram account.
Some websites offer Grams to the public and pretend to be affiliated with Telegram. Please be aware that these websites are not official and have no affiliation with Telegram. No Grams have been issued to anyone, and Telegram is not involved in any sales of Grams.Читать полностью…
Telegram is six years old! 🥳
To celebrate, we locked six people in a room and gave them six hours to write this encyclopedia of Telegram (it took 24).
This video should give you an idea of how the new account switching feature works – available on Android today and coming soon to other platforms. ✨🌟⭐️ Happy holidays!Читать полностью…
Bonus track. An embeddable HTML-widget is now available for all messages in public groups and channels. You can see it when you open links to such messages in your browser – try this with t.me/telegram/81.
Below the widget is a button that reveals the code to embed it on any website. Journalists quoting Telegram channel posts in their articles are going to love this.
Meet Telegram 4.5! You can now group photos and videos into albums when sending — and control the order in which your media will be sent.
Store any important messages or media by sending or forwarding them to the Saved Messages chat. Each saved message has a “go to” button that takes you to the right place in the original chat.
We've also improved username search to make it easier to find popular bots and channels, added support for pinned messages in channels, and redesigned the Settings screens on iOS. iOS users also get full support for iPhone X.

Terrorists are after your fear – and the media are glad to help them. Don't give in!
You can't stop newspapers from spreading the terrorists' message far and wide, but at least you can report public terrorist content on Telegram (in the unlikely event you ever see it).
Payments are coming to Telegram bots. Soon you'll be able to order pizza, pay for a pair of shoes, hire a cab, or refill your subway pass — all in a few button taps on Telegram.

Telegram calls will first become available to users from Western Europe, but the rest of the world will get them very soon as well (no extra update required). Get ready to roar!
A big update is coming to Telegram soon. It is currently delayed because Apple is keeping the iOS version "In review" – it's been stuck in this state for more than 10 days.Читать полностью…
