Telegram’s previous update brought huge changes to emoji, including the ability to create custom animated emoji and the Premium gift card option for your friends or family. Today’s update doubles those emoji improvements by adding an infinite number of comments and emoji statuses for Telegram users on Android and iOS. So, what exactly are the “infinite comments” added today? Basically, all Telegram users can now choose answers from an “infinite selection” of custom emoji. The selection includes the answers that were previously only available with Telegram Premium.
To make choosing from such a large number of emoji easier, Telegram has redesigned the response panel by making it extensible. In fact, the most common emoji you use will always appear at the top. Please note that you can add a maximum of 3 comments per post.
Another big change coming to Telegram relates to emoji statuses. Starting today, Premium members can add an animated emoji status, which will appear next to their name. However, the animated emoji status replaces the Premium badge in the chat list, in your profile, and in groups.
The new feature allows Premium users to set one of 7 default statuses that change color to match different Telegram themes. Plus, they can choose from an “infinite” number of custom emoji.
Apart from these two major new features, the latest Telegram update introduces some tweaks to more technical aspects of the app. For example, users who regularly log out and back in will be sent login codes via their email address or via Sign in with Apple or Sign in with Google, but only if they want to.
Finally, a new improvement available exclusively on Android allows users to prioritize downloads from the “Downloads” tab of Search. By holding down items in the download list, you can reorder them and change the priority. There’s also a new themed Telegram icon available for Android 13 or newer, which automatically matches the phone’s dark mode stitches and accent color.
