There are lots of fun apps that people can download and install on their smartphones and then there are “essential” apps. Telegram is one of the latter because this chatting app makes it easier for users to get in touch with their friends and family members but more importantly, Telegram provides users with the highest level of security.
Telegram’s developers are known for putting a high price on user security and for doing everything in their power to keep the app safe. In fact, Telegram got banned in Russia after the app’s CEO refused to give a ‘master key’ to the government. Nonetheless, today we are talking about Telegram because the chatting app has just received a brand-new update.
Telegram 5.10.0 Update
As previously mentioned, Telegram has just received a new update. The update is currently rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels and it sports the 5.10.0 version number. The cool thing about this new update is that it’s not a maintenance release and instead, it introduces a bunch of powerful features that users are going to love such as silent messages and group admin titles.
Now that we have presented the latest update for Telegram, let’s go ahead and take a look at the patch notes that the developers have published in the changelog so that all Telegram users can get a better idea of what’s coming.
