Windows Telegram app updates with new video sticker feature

The official Telegram app updated on several platforms today including Windows 10 and Windows 11.

This latest app update adds support for video stickers which anyone can now create from their own video files.

In addition to video stickers, Telegram also made some adjustments to reactions with this update. Going forward, reaction animations will play in real-time which means that the recipient will see the animation when they load the message. Reactions will also now include a read status to inform the sender of when their emoji reaction has been seen.

Here’s the full release notes for the Telegram app update:

VIDEO STICKERS

  • Use a new type of detailed stickers with smooth animations.
  • Create new sets by sending .webm videos to @stickers.

BETTER REACTIONS

  • See real-time animations in chat when a user reacts to your message.
  • React with additional emoji expressing love, appreciation, anger or surprise.

READ STATUS FOR REACTIONS

  • Watch the animations for unseen reactions play when you hit the button.

AND MORE
