One of the strengths of Telegram, in addition to the messaging features that we all know, is the constant update including small improvements here and there. Unlike other applications that just change for years, Telegram incorporates something new each month.

If the previous Telegram update more focused on groups and the supergroups, version 3.8 revolves around other sections more everyday as the design the interface or the improvement of the platform’s bots.

Interface changes

The Telegram 3.8 in Android interface changes are not drastic, but rather subtle. If not do a comparison of the before and after, probably even you realize too much difference.

Specifically, change slightly some colors, the chat bubbles, some buttons, new bars of progress and a completely new system for send documents, that includes navigation by folders on your mobile.

Finally as far as the interface changes is concerned, becomes an option unless I wore a long time missing: when you play a sticker on the screen, is displayed a window with all the stickers of the pack so you can send directly to the chat or add them to your Telegram.

BOT 2.0

The second cornerstone of Telegram 3.8 are the bots, who receive lmajor update to date. Bots platform now includes a range of new possibilities that will delight the developers of bots.

It is the case of the integrated keyboard in the text, new buttons, permissions to access the location and editing of text on the fly. Bots can now generate any type of content as documents, MP3, videos, animations and stickers, contact.

So far the creators of bots for Telegram had to squeeze the brain to give you additional features to chat, usually through text. The new Telegram BOT 2.0 platform gives developers many more tools to develop almost anything imaginable.

These are some of the bots that you can use to test these new features:

  • @music -Send you classical music in MP3
  • @youtube -Sends chat videos on YouTube (you can connect to your account)
  • @foursquare -Send the chat a place to choose between the closest to where you are
  • @sticker -Search for emoji-based stickers and sends them to the chat

As usual, Telegram has released this update form simultaneously on platforms where have official app, but it seems that Android will something behind with respect to the iOS version. As well, some improvements as the contents of bots and GIF preview a floating window will announce that they will arrive “soon” to Android.
