Telegram introduces new features in its January update, including a ‘view-once’ option for voice and video messages. Users can now record messages, swipe up, and select ‘view-once,’ allowing recipients to see or hear the message only once. The update also includes the ability to pause and resume recording, along with controls for read time visibility. Premium users gain features such as hiding read time and selecting who can initiate messages. Telegram continues to enhance user experience, following recent updates for channel discovery, customization, and improved call functionality with end-to-end encryption.
