Telegram Gets Protected Content, Anonymous Messages And More


Telegram: A new update for Telegram was released yesterday (7), bringing several new features to the messenger app for Android and iOS. Anonymous posting to public groups, message forwarding restriction, and connected device management improvements are some of them.

Among the highlights of Telegram 8.3 is the protection of content posted in groups and channels, allowing messages to be kept restricted to those who participate in conversations. In addition to restricting the forwarding of chats, the tool prevents screen capture and limits the possibility of saving shared media.

From now on, participants of public groups and channels can also send anonymous messages, keeping their identity confidential. The user will be able to choose the name and photo of a channel they own to post, with such data appearing in place of their personal account details.

Removing messages by date in private conversations is another addition made available in the update, making it easier to delete messages by day or specific period. Just open the calendar, tap the date bar and enter the time range.
