At first we had audio messages. They are not video calls, no. On the other hand, developers can add a Pay button to these bots so that when users tap Pay, they will be asked to fill in their credit card and shipping info. The feature works similarly to voice messages, except for the fact that it's activated by holding the camera icon instead of the mic shortcut.

Also announced today, Telegram users can now record video messages to share in group chat or Telegraph channels. After that, it switches to camera mode. Press and hold the camera icon.

The Telegram secure messaging app has been updated with video support, bot payments, and instant view. - Introducing Telesco.pe, where anyone can view video messages from public channels - no Telegram account required. 2.

We are going to have so much fun with this, trust me. Telescope is a new video hosting platform aimed at those who use video to communicate. If you have fans, and want to address them directly, you can record a video that anyone can see - even if they're not on Telegram.

What makes Telescope stand out from any similar product introduced by rivals is that the feature guarantees an audience even by those who are yet to embrace Telegram - and there are very many of them - so you can still reach out to them from their WhatsApp cocoons.

Video messages and the hosted Telescope videos are capped at a duration of 1 minute, at least as far as I know now.

Before any video is sent, Telegram compresses it for swift processing.

Refer to the gallery below to see how some of the new Telegram functionalities work in practice or follow the Google Play Store link beneath this writing to download the latest version of the popular communications app.

Telegram is working with Stripe to enable payments, but it has plans to add support for more localized options such as RazorPay, FlutterWave, PaymentWall, Yandex.Money and Qiwi, which will give it a stronger footprint in India, Africa, Russia and beyond. On clicking Pay, a user is prompted to enter their card details and then checkout. The update includes three major features: video messaging, bot payments, and Instant View... This basically means you can put up a video which can be viewed by anyone from Telegram's public channels. With Instant View, Telegram users can enjoy articles from any mass media or blogs in a uniform and easily readable way.
