Telegram, the instant messaging app is in news again. It has released a number of new features for both Android and iOS users. 

The first and the most noticeable feature is the addition of a new and proper media player. You can send all types of audio files over the app since it has a built-in music player interface. Just touch the track to play it and you’ll be able to see the other tracks sent in the conversation as well. The most special thing about this update is that you can play an audio in the background even if you close the Telegram app! It’s high time for Youtube to learn a thing or two, isn’t it?

The second update is for sharing your real-time location in the groups! When you share your location in a group, you’ll be asked to choose whether you want to share it for five minutes, one hour, or eight hours. Using this tool, your location will stay live throughout your chosen duration and you won’t need to upload it repeatedly for everyone to see.

The third update is the addition of new languages like French, Indonesian, Malay, Russian and Ukrainian. More languages will be added in the next update.

There will also be badges next to admin’s messages in the groups and the admins in super groups can choose to show their older messages to the members.
