Telegram Version 8.0 Unveils Live Streams With Unlimited Vie


Messaging app, Telegram has announced the release of version 8.0 of its app. The new version allows live streams to be watched by an unlimited number of viewers, up from the previous limit of 1,000.

The new update version 8.0 of the app includes more options when forwarding messages and a shortcut to switch between channels and it's now available on both iOS and Android.

The new update complete with the ability for as many as 30 users to broadcast at once opens the door to telegram becoming a full-on mobile live streaming platform. It also supports Clubhouse-style voice channels with support for “millions” of live listeners. It’s rapid progress considering Telegram’s group calling feature only launched in June this year.

Telegram described the new feature as “the power to run your own TV station... right in your pocket.”

Version 8.0 of the app has an option to remove captions and hide the sender's name when forwarding messages and media. Scrolling to the bottom of a text channel now includes a new option to quickly swipe up to jump to the next unread channel. Other interface tweaks include a new “choosing a sticker” status in chats, and an unread messages counter in comment threads.
