Telegram new update adds basic video editor, smooth animations and more

Telegram Messenger

Telegram goes on to prove to be the best Messenger App app around the world. Even though a major v6.0 update landed just two months ago. Telegram’s development team apparently hasn’t stopped to take a break. Today the app began rolling out new features on both Android and iOS, most notably an editor for videos. 

“Today we’re upgrading the media editor with support for animated stickers and editing videos,” Telegram wrote in a blog post. The new editor allows you to adjust contrast and brightness levels, add text and animated stickers, and even draw to highlight parts of the video. The new animated sticker functionality is also available for photos.

Other new features include an upgraded GIF panel with a Trending section and emoji-based tabs, faster loading times for GIFs in the panel, smoother message animations, and improved cache management (though the latter two are specifically for the Android app).

Besides, the new version has also upgraded the GIF panel to include two new sections; Trending section and an emoji-based tab. The emoji-based tab is what you’ve been waiting for in Telegram, folks. This section makes it simpler to search for gif versions of emojis without a hassle.

After folders were rolled out a few months ago in Telegram 6.0, the new version makes it easy to add or remove a chat from a folder (hold on any chat in the list to add/remove it to one of your folders).
