Telegram 5.12.1 Update – Listen to Podcasts at Faster Speeds!


Telegram does a great job of making it easier for users to keep in touch with their family members and friends. However, this is not the only department where the app excels at. Telegram is also providing users with access to fun features such as listening to podcasts for example.

The reason why we are mentioning this is that the latest update for Telegram is improving the app’s overall media playback performances. With that said, let’s go ahead and check out everything there is to know about the new update.

Telegram 5.12.1 Update

The developers who are in charge of Telegram are always working on new updates that are developed especially to enhance the app’s user experience and this is exactly what you can expect from the latest 5.12.1 release.

The update is currently rolling out via OTA (over the air) and all Telegram users are advised to keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network so that they can download it as soon as possible.

Podcasts Improvements

Tens of thousands of people are using Telegram as their favorite platforms to listen to podcasts while going with their days and the 5.12.1 update is going to make it that much better to listen to podcasts on Telegram. “Listen to podcasts and audio tracks longer than 20 minutes at 2x speed,” announced the developers of Telegram in the patch notes.

Playback Improvements

The faster podcasts are not the only improvements that the new 5.12.1 update is making. Telegram users will now be able to resume playback from where they left off when watching long videos and listening to long audio tracks.

This might not be a groundbreaking change, but it’s certainly a nice addition. Moreover, the update makes it possible for users to search for items in the current folder when attaching files or music.
