Headlining the update is support for movie messaging. Beginning with version Four.0, Telegram users can now send movie messages to one another two different ways: the mic icon to switch to camera mode, then tap and hold to record a movie message or by swiping up while in hands-free mode.
Additionally, Telegram today is introducing Telesco.pe, a fresh service that permits anyone to view movie messages from public Telegram channels.
Next is support for bot payments. This means that users can now order pizza, shop, or even pay bills using built-in Telegram bots. Perhaps most notably for iOS users, however, is that bots support Apple Pay, making it amazingly effortless to pay in-app.
Last but not least, Telegram has announced a fresh Instant View platform. What this feature does is permit anyone to view articles directly in the Telegram app and create article previews using the Instant View Editor. All in all, this feature is similar to Facebook’s instant article platform and Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages instrument.
To encourage adoption of Instant View, Telegram is holding a contest with a $250,000 prize for those who work to enable Instant View for the entire web.
