And is that is intended for those users that are looking for more functionality and an interface with greater fluency. What is certain is that this client of Telegram to comply with such requirements, even with greater ease of use for a user experience virtually complete. We’re going to reel off all the features of this app, in addition to the differences with the original version.
What is Telegram X and whence comes this idea?
Is an app of instant messaging that works on the basis of the original version, which does not need to be installed to enjoy this version 2.or. It is a kind of app experimental, featuring more advanced features or developments in advance, which will then be reflected in the Telegram. According to the creator, Pavel Durov, serves as internal competition in the companyto promote innovation and draw new ideas in this sector.
The idea came from the Telegram Android Challengea competition driven by the company itself in 2016, in the proposing innovative ideas and workable for all types of user. The first prize got the project called Challegram in the category of library TDLib, a program to develop clients of Telegram multi-platform, secure, easy to use and multilenguajes.
Of Challegram was renamed Telegram X, although the ground on which it lies, that change has not been at all clear. Changed not only the name of the app, but the name of the developer is changed under the name of Telegram LLC, including the contact email on Google Play also owns the domain of Telegram. One of two: or well, the company bought the start-upor his creator he went straight to a part of the team without absorption by half.
All of its features to the light
The app has several features that deserve a mention of the utilities that meet. Especially in the section on customization and design, where you focus more of your resources, more than in new chat options or the system.
Control by PIN
In Telegram you could encrypt the chats through a code, but in version X security has increased. In addition to a code, the methods for locking conversations are up to 5 options. You will be able to unlock via a password, a gesture, a pattern, and even with the digital footprint that we will have to re-register in the app itself.
Separate tabs for chats and calls
It is the first thing that we find nothing more in the app, two separate columns both for the conversations and for the calls. To move from one to another, simply press on the screen, which makes it much faster and more agile change.
This section that works like a private chat to send messages and files to ourselves, has a different layout than the main version. The location to find the chat is the same, but the elements are distributed in another way. The sections of multimedia, such as images, music or the GIFs we find now at the top in a drop-down menu.
In addition, you can access the bot’s built-in form more visible, simply by clicking on the icon of a clip at the bottom. Right there we will see at the far right, a logo is pretty indicative of a robot, and they can quickly start a chat.
Interface more customizable
In the menu “Settings”, we find a new section called “Interface”, where it is possible to configure more parameters in aspects of design and new functions within a chat. In that menu, in addition to changing the color of the app as always, you set options such as the autorreproducción of GIFs, preview of the chats, to insert emojis or stickers animated and vibration custom.
You can even assign actions to swipe your finger across the screen to answer or to share a message. On the other hand, we can hide the keyboard to scroll the chat, to separate the photos and videos in separate tabs or edit the markdowns, that is to say, the italics and the bold print.
In addition, a detail quite striking is that we can play audio and videomessages automatically only when the handset is near the ear, something quite useful. And if we don’t like the type of font that you used Telegram X, nothing happens, you can change the font that we use on the smartphone normally. However, we have to say that the stability of the app will be compromised.
The full name of this technology is called Picture-in-Picture, and translated into English, it means that we can continue watching the videos while navigating in the app. In other words, through a floating bubble, continues to play a video, while we may answer to another person. It is a system that has been recently implemented in Telegram X.
Section dedicated to Stickers
If we access again to the menu “Settings”, you will see a section only for the stickers, which are divided into several categories. We have the ‘Featured, which are practically the new stickers cartoons that have been implemented for this app, while also showing us the collections of stickers that we already have installed. Finally, it appears a tab called ‘Masks’, which are caricatures of different types and of course, there is also plenty to choose from.
Differences with the original version of Telegram
The differences between one version and another are not too noticeable, at the same time that non-negligible at the time of choosing one of the two options. without further ado, we’re going to show the most relevant features that Telegram X mark the difference.
Fluency and gestures
Cleaner interface, more orderly, with less saturation of options… Honestly this gives an added value to the app, as it is able, in the face of such settings, to give you the proper length and width of the menus. In addition, she gains much in fluidity, with animations and transitions are almost imperceptible, while the Telegram was more crude in this regard.
On the other hand, the system of gestures has improved. In addition to access to the sidebar as could be done previously, the app includes interactions such as reply to or share messages with just one movement, the same that we need to move from a chat to the main menu.
The customization is another of the topics pivoting of Telegram X. it Offers more configurable options, both in design and interface, on issues of navigation by the chat bubble and in security. Without a doubt, it means to be a step ahead in what’s new, as if we are in the normal version would not come to pass a time.
Improvement of the GIFs
Send a GIF file does not have to mean a short video. Now, we can have these videos in a loop with an extension of time greater than what is usual, specifically in the app of Telegram. In addition, it has improved the search for GIFs with a preview most clear of these files.
Face wash to the music player
It is true that Telegram already had this built-in function, but in this version, we have taken a drastic turn. More than a change, it is a face wash, with a look much more cared for. The aesthetics of the version first time was something coarse and it was up to
Why has it increased in use lately?
It is something that takes happening not just in 2020, but a few months ago. And we say it with knowledge of cause, because Telegram notified when a new user enters the platform. It is not a coincidence, all this is due to the implementation of innovations, in much higher amount than WhatsApp, and above all, by some controversial.
The app, which Facebook owns, has been dragged to by various news that are hoaxes or not, has resulted in a number of downloads to large-scale Telegram. The latter has been a campaign driven in Spain, in which he accuses WhatsApp of hide to the company certain information about the Coronavirus, and that is taking advantage of the project of Pavel Durov.
Is it worth the change?
If you are really looking for more functionality and customization in a messaging app, Telegram X is the app perfect. In addition, it does not revert in a lower level of security in our conversations, but just the opposite. What is more, its stability is not seen resentful in no time, with a fluidity out of the ordinary. All this without losing any data by changing from one app to the other, since both are synchronized. We believe that it is a change that is worth theabove all because it offers a greater user experience.
