Telegram 4.0 adds video messages and much more

The messaging app claims that the all-new version 4.0 is the "mother of all Telegram updates".

Telegram has received a slew of features in its latest version bringing a subtle combination of digital payments, artificial intelligence, and video messaging.

Telescope extends video messaging.

"Video messages are so fast because Telegram compresses them and sends them even as you record them". Bots have been around for a while, but now vendors which run bots can build in payment options allowing for a more streamlined purchasing experience. This means that users can now order pizza, shop, or even pay bills using built-in Telegram bots. All in all, this feature is similar to Facebook's instant article platform and Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages tool.

Sixers linked to impending free agent PG Kyle Lowry
After making 15-of-16 free throws in Game Three, James followed that up with 8-of-9 in Game Four from the charity stripe. Such a stat line has never been accomplished by anyone over the course of an entire postseason.

Telegram also rolled out Telescope, for those who like blogging. Touching the microphone, we will get an icon of the camera, which is to be pressed to start recording a video message of no more than 10 seconds, that can be seen in a circle in the chat. The entry can be made, including hands-free. Stop and replay before sending. Finally, Telegram now also features Telescope, a video platform that doesn't require a Telegram account and can publicly host recordings. "When accepting a payment from a user, the bot developer can choose between all available payment providers, selecting the one already used by the buyer or the one with the lowest commission". For example, you can order goods from merchant bots and pay for the purchase directly through the app.

Instant View is ready to support thousands of websites, including your favorite ones. "The bot uses these instructions to create a slim and lovely Instant View representation of the source page", explains the team. "Instant View allows Telegram users to view articles from around the Web in a consistent way, with zero loading time".

"To generate Instant View pages, our parser bot uses templates - sets of rules that tell the bot where to find useful content and what to ignore on a particular domain or URL". Payments on Telegram aren't actually processed through Telegram itself, and thus the service stores none of your data; instead, it ties in with other services such as Stripe.
