Telegram X Beta - Alternative client for Android Community Report 📲 Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0

There is a poll for the next Telegram X feature happening now! If you will navigate to the channel fast enough - you will be able to participate in the poll where you can choose what feature do you want to see next.

There are 3 options:

  • Video Quality
  • Raise to Speak
  • Masks

First two options sound straightforward while the last one is about a possibility to add filters "Masks" in the in-app photo editor. Here you can find an official blog post about the photo editing feature.

This seems to be the first time (didn't see this before) in Telegram X beta history when users were given to decide the direction of future development. This is an awesome initiative and I hope that we will see many of those in the future!

New INFO from devs

In case you missed: Raise to Listen is already available in beta version - raise phone to an ear while playing voice message to play it through an earpiece. Raise to Speak stands just for recording new voice messages via the so-called raise gesture.

Video Quality will allow choosing quality of the videos you send.

Masks will allow adding stickers & masks on photos.
