Initially touted as Whatsapp clone “Telegram” is far ahead today in the game. With the new version 4.1 now telegram has increased the limit of members to 10,000 (that’s hilarious) in supergroups. Yes, that’s like a small town inside one supergroup, imagine the capabilities & opportunities created with this limit. That’s all going to be handled as normal as on back end with the use of cloud technologies upon which whole telegram platform is built.
Well with these massive numbers of people inside one group, someone needs to play GOD to manage the groups. That’s power is given to admin with some admin tools features. So let’s take a quick look at what’s new in Telegram 4.1:
- Now users & admins can search to find specific users from massive numbers of people.
- Admin Rights: SuperAdmin has control on what other admins can do? Like who among your trusted admins will be able to add new users, manage messages, block members, edit group info, or even add new admins. SuperAdmin is now the King & other Admins are Commander of their Army.
- Partial Bans: Now admin has user restrictions control like who can read/send messages, send Media/Stickers/GIFs & can Embed links. Means now admin has upper hand over the behavior of offensive users who are creating problems & breaking the environment & integrity of supergroups.
- Recent Admin Actions: To synchronize the actions of Commander (Admin) & King (SuperAdmin) without any confusion there needs to be common log book, well that’s what brought by the Telegram with Recent Admin Actions in admin page(king’s court). Here a log of all service actions taken in the group in last 48 hours which can be only visible to admins. It also gave some additional power like show messages that were deleted in the last 48 hours and the original versions of edited messages, so no fugitive can escape for their nasty behavior.
- Sharing & Android pay: iOS version of Telegram now have better sharing extension with capabilities of multi-select & optional comment. While Android version of the app has support for bot payments & new media viewer where photos & videos appear at one place while you share from attachment or gallery.
- Freedom of Speech: Telegram is already a secure platform with use of cloud technology & encryption of data, now to make it available for more and more people of the Internet new anti-censorship tool is introduced which has the ability to set up a Proxy server in the “Data and Storage” section of the Settings.
