- The creator of the application emphasized the emphasis on privacy and convenience
- Expect an update early next month.
Last night, June 26, the founder of the Telegram project Pavel Durov published a post about expanding the functionality of the messenger. The update will bring the much-anticipated Stories, short video notes from users, to the app.
“Our audience has been asking for years that we add the ability to post Stories on Telegram. This appeared in more than half of all requests, ”said the application developer in his Telegram channel.
He also stated that the development team until recently was against the introduction of this feature. However, internal tests showed great potential and left an extremely positive impression.
The emphasis in the development of a new function was made on user convenience and privacy. Stories will be placed in a separate block, and the author can independently establish a list of those people who will see them.
Also, the developers will add the ability to place text or a smiley on the video. And if you want, you can just hide them. The main “highlight” of the function will be the support for images immediately from the front and rear cameras of the device.
The user himself will determine the period of storage of records – from 6 to 48 hours. Also, again, if desired, Stories can be pinned to the profile.
Durov noted that the functionality is undergoing the last stage of testing. Most likely, the innovation will appear in the application in early July.
