    Telegram X v0.20.10.958 beta brings along a ton of bug fixes and enhancements with some very handy toggles added. Let's go through the very very detailed changelog and then we will share our thoughts.

    What's new?

    • Completely reworked delete chat / return to chat logic (delete chat / leave group / leave channel / clear history / return to group / return to channel buttons) on all screens (chats list, chat itself, profile)
    • Leave Channel / Leave Group for its creators from the chats list / chat and profile screen
    • Return to Group / Return to Channel through three-dot menu, when available
    • When deleting a secret chat, specify if you'd like to delete history on other party's side
    • When leaving a basic group chat, specify if you'd like to delete chat from the list or just leave without deleting history
    • Save GIF in full-screen GIF viewer
    • Video Messages tab in shared media / saved messages
    • Tap to open full-screen viewer when autoplay GIFs disabled
    • High-quality preview of the GIF when autoplay GIFs disabled
    • When autoplay GIFs option disabled, video messages won't move while paused as well, and this option applies to shared media as well
    • Moved: Destroy group / channel is now located on manage group / channel screen inside three-dot menu (and only if there are less than 1000 members)
    • Updated TDLib version
    • Added "Copyright" as chat report reason
    • Added Settings - Privacy & Security - Delete all cloud drafts
    • Significantly reduced CPU & memory usage taken by each GIF and video message, thus, they display much faster and smoother (most noticeable when you scroll shared GIFs or @gif results)
    • Collapsed some message menu items to "More" in order to reduce its size (also removed "Select" option for the same reason)
    • Playback position is now properly saved when you pause/resume app while playing videos

    Improvements:

    • When a new message arrives into the open chat, the sound will play only for messages that need notification
    • "Too Many Requests: retry after X" error message
    • USER_NOT_MUTUAL_CONTACT error message
    • Contextual information in pop-ups (i.e.

    As it was reported by WA Beta Info, there were two updates for WhatsApp Messenger in the past week with two new features that we are going to talk about. As you remember, we spoke about the notification shortcuts that were in the works by the WhatsApp team and one of them is available now in v2.18.216+.

    You guessed it! It's the Mute button and here is how it works. You'll be able to see it when you get 51+ messages from the same person or a group chat. The future plans of WhatsApp point out that until you get 51+ messages, you will see the Mark as read button and after crossing that number - the Mute button.
