Telegram 5.5 introduces Unlimited Message Unsend for private chats and Anonymous Forwarding


Telegram on Androidfurther focuses on privacy

Telegram has undoubtedly made its mark in the era of messaging since the recent privacy consents experienced by facebook. This has not come as a surprise because of the service's stern support for user privacy. There is a steady rise in the number of telegram users in Cameroon. Daily, since the start of 2019, I get a daily notification telling me of a new user who just signed up to use telegram. It will be no surprise if Telegram goes on to become a dominant social media app in Cameroon.

Telegram 5.5 Changelog

In continuum with this,  the version 5.5 (and also version 1.6.2 for desktop) adds some new features aimed at giving people more control over how they use Telegram. This adds up to an unlimited unsend feature for private chats and anonymous forwarding, as well as some other features.

Below is the Play-store Changelog:

  • Delete any message on both ends in any private chat, anytime.
  • New privacy settings for message forwarding and profile pictures.
  • Emoji suggestions for the first word you type in a message.
  • Search in Settings.
  • Redesigned panel for Emoji, GIFs and Stickers with the new search.
  • TalkBack support.
  • Improved call quality
  • Streaming support for GIF and video messages

The first thing that was eye-catching was the unlimited used feature, but it's exclusive to private chats. It allows you to take back any message you've sent or even ones that you've received, or you can just wipe out the whole conversation altogether with a couple of taps.  Most importantly, there is no time limit on this feature.

Message forwarding is interesting, letting you cross-quote what somebody said in another chat or channel into a different one. Now, you have the option to make it so that forwards don't link back to your account as demonstrated below. 

Finally, we're getting some other quality of life improvements like search in settings, a better emoji and gif panel, and list of related emojis as you type. Telegram 5.5 also adds full TalkBack support.

The update should be live on the google play store, but you can get it below:
