Telegram desktop app gets calls, new gifs, and block features in new update

The Windows 10 Telegram desktop app has updated to Version 1.1.0 on Github (as spotted by MSPU) with the same update expected to be pushed to the Windows Store soon.

This update to the Telegram app is rather significant as it introduces the new Calls feature that was teased in the recent Telegram Messenger Preview app on Windows phone recently. Along with the introduction of calls, this latest update also brings a new panel for gifs, emoji, and stickers, new groups fro blocked contacts, and the ability for admins to delete messages. Here’s the official release notes:

Telegram Calls are now available on desktops: secure, crystal-clear, constantly improved by artificial intelligence.

The new Emoji, Stickers, and Saved GIFs panel becomes a separate space on the right when Telegram is running in a wide enough window.

Manage blocked users list in your supergroups.

Chat admins can delete messages by other members.
