Channel stats, QR codes, channels tab, donations
Recently, Telegram officials created a channel where they publish the best design and feature concepts in regards to their apps, all created by talented designers and developers from around the world. We did a report about the more eye-catching concepts published there a while back, which you can take a look at from here. Just a couple of days ago a new concept was shared and it indeed caught our attention as it has some pretty neat ideas that you would wish Telegram's developers go ahead and leverage as soon as possible. So, without further ado, let's see what this concept by @maratkharr has in mind.
- QR codes for profile sharing
This would come quite in handy as it is crazy simple to scan a code to add someone to your contacts list and instantly start chatting with.
- Global currency rates
Telegram is already a great source for news, then, why not have daily currency reports as well?
- Channel/group statistics
Having such a piece of detailed information about channel and group visitors and how they interact with each other is going to be extremely helpful for optimizing the content that is being shared and is going to be.
- Quantum games
Facebook Messenger's games are a hit. Why does Telegram not have similar time killing games too?
- In-app GRAM payments
Sending money and paying for things would get a lot more convenient if Telegram adds this feature. FYI, GRAM is their cryptocurrency.
This is for sure the best way to support people.
- Video calls
Currently, there is only voice calling is supported by Telegram and for video chats, users have to resort to other apps. If we get that one, it would certainly be great.
As we said in the beginning, Telegram representatives have picked up this concept, so this means that they are considering adding some of the concept features in future releases of their official applications. Though, we will have to patiently wait for a bit. In the meantime, if you have some other great ideas, you can submit your concepts to the @design_bot on the 'Telegram Designers' channel.
