Telegram has seen the lapses of the app; hence, releasing two new apps and updates to resolve the issues.
Telegram, launched in 2016, is deemed the rival of WhatsApp. It is a popular messaging platform on AppStore and PlayStore. Recently, it has announced that the app will come out with two new different apps that offer better features.
Why Launch New Apps?
Telegram was aware that their previous web app was full of glitches, and sadly, it was not as popular as it is in iOS and Android. It barely got any updates and received many complaints from its users. The criticisms include no stickers and malfunctioning of video call accessibility.
Due to this, the app will solve the issue by releasing the new apps. They claim that these new releases will improve its web performance. Expect that Telegram’s new apps will resolve the previous web app’s flaws.
Telegram’s two new web apps
The two new web apps are called Telegram WebK and Telegram WebZ. With these new apps, users can now send and make video calls on the web app. While both apps look identical in terms of identity, their functionality is different. However, it is still not entirely clear why there are two separate apps needed.
Upon looking at the apps, specific differences can be identified in the user interface of Telegram WebK and Telegram WebZ. There are only a few differences which they claim feature-wise.
The differences between WebK and WebZ
The difference between the two is that Telegram WebK allows users to mute calls but is not applicable in Telegram WebZ. In Web K, the search bar is color, while the WebZ version opted for grey.
These differences are not that impactful and essential. What the users noticed is its lacking voice calling features.
In WebK, the search bar is white in color, whereas it is grey in the WebZ version. But one of the essential features of all, voice calling, is still missing from both apps. Notably, WhatsApp had launched a voice calling feature on its web app a few months ago.
Also, the latest version, V7.7.0., will include scheduled voice calling. The updated one allows users to schedule a special chat session or any meeting with their friends. Users will only need to send a voice message at the desired time. Also, pinning a voice chat on channels will be available.
The latest version permits users to change their account details like their name and description. At the same time, they are still members of a chat without moving away from the channel. The reason behind this is the various attempts of other members to peruse other profiles to let the mediators know them easily.
How to use Voice Chat Scheduling?
To use voice chat scheduling, update the app to its latest version, V7.7.0. Once done, open Telegram. In the app, there are three dots on top of the app. Tap this to get directed on the “schedule voice chat option.” Afterward, users can choose their preferred time and date. Lastly, click the “start” button.
Hopefully, with telegram’s newest releases and updated versions, the users can have what they’re looking for in the app. While the app creators admit that it is still not perfect, they hope that these resolutions will improve their services. Telegram can be installed on PCs and mobile phones.
