Telegram X Beta - Alternative client for Android Community Report 📲 POCOPHONE F1

Telegram's second, sort of official, messaging client for Android has received a couple of updates recently. The newest of the bunch is version 0.21.9.1171 RC from June 5th, with the 'RC' moniker which stands for release candidate, meaning that the build is near production ready.

Apart from dozens of bugs squashed, Telegram X now comes with Hungarian localization, plus many needed improvements to the welcome screen after signing up and the initial importing process of your contacts list. Moreover, following the OG Telegram app, the X now bakes in support for channel messages in groups, letting you connect one channel with a group. Then, once you share a post on your channel, it is going to be automatically forwarded to the connected group, and pinned at the same time.

Besides, here are the full release notes for those who are interested.
