Telegram’s latest update (version 4.7) enables support for multiple accounts on Android devices, while it has brought four different themes and various accent colours to iOS. The instant messenger app now also includes quick replies, similar to what has so far been experienced on WhatsApp, for both Android and iOS devices.
With Telegram’s latest update to the app, you will be able to add up to three accounts with different phone numbers. You won’t need to own three different Android devices to operate any of distinguished account as the app itself provides you with a single solution. You will be able to quickly switch between the added accounts from the slide menu to send messages from any particular phone number. Notifications will be available from all accounts by default, however there is an option to change this by going to the Notification settings.
For iOS users, in order to change the theme of your Telegram app, you will need to visit the Appearance settings and then choose between the available four themes, including a minimalistic “Day” and two dark themes – namely “Night” and “Night Blue”. The Day theme also comes with the ability to let you change its view by picking a suitable accent colour for the entire app.
Telegram has also added support for quick replies that are available for both Android and iOS devices to give you a similar experience to WhatsApp. You just need to swipe left on any message in a chat to quickly reply to the same with a text, emoji, sticker or GIF.
The latest update (v4.7) of the Telegram app is available for download on Android and iOS via Google Play and App Store, respectively. This comes just a few weeks after version 4.6 of Telegram brought features such as auto-downloading media, better link previews as well as albums in Secret Chats.
