Telegram 8.5 Released with Video Stickers, Better Reactions and a New Way to Navigating Between Recent Chats



Today, a new version of the Telegram instant messaging app has arrived with more useful and fun features to give users more ways to communicate with their family and friends. This version holds the number 8.5 and comes a month after the previous version.


Telegram 8.5 makes creating video collages so easy that anyone can now easily create detailed animated stickers from regular videos using any video editing software that allows exporting projects as a .WEBM video file with an alpha channel. In the past, creating Video Stickers experience and specialized software such as Adobe Illustrator to create them. You can post the video stickers you created with the @Stickers bot, or search and add some new collections made by others.


Reactions now have compact animations, and 5 new reactions (🥰🤯🤔🤬 👏) have been added to give users more options to interact with group and channels posts and friends' chats. You can also send a larger effect via press and hold on the reaction in the menu. The five new reactions can also be sent as interactive (animated) emojis.

Reactions are now synced as well, so recipients will see the animation in real-time. Furthermore, they now have a read status, and as with replies or @mentions, a new ♡ button appears when your messages contain unseen reactions.


When jumping through unread channels (by swiping up after the last post in a channel to move to the next channel), or clicking on a channel link in a conversation, you can now press and hold the back button at the top of the conversation, and Telegram will show a list of recent channels to facilitate the transition and switching between them.

This feature will save a lot of time for people who move frequently between bots and channels, and it is a beautiful addition from Telegram that may be expanded in the future to include personal chats as well.

Telegram developers spent two weeks last month focusing on fixing known issues in Telegram apps, which should make Telegram more stable and improve users' experience.


In addition, they have also improved the quality of calls, added support for translation to the instant view pages, and added the option to send silent messages from the share menu. On iOS, new animations have also been added when tapping icons in the tab bar.

The Telegram 8.5 update is available through the Google Play Store, the App Store, and the Huawei App Gallery, and you can update the application from there. If you are going to install Telegram for the first time, you can download the app from the following links:
