Telegram update adds disappearing messages in private chats

Popular instant messaging service Telegram has released yet another update for their app. The new version 4.2 is officially rolling out now to the users worldwide. The update is quite a big one and brings some new features and considerably great improvements. Also, this version has some fixes for the known bugs and issues.

In the official blog post, Telegram says: ” Telegram 4.2 is here! We have completely redesigned our photo editing tools, and it takes you even fewer taps to make your photos look amazing. In addition, you can now set a self-destruct timer for any photos and videos you share in private chats. ”

If you set a timer, the countdown starts the moment your recipient opens the photo or video you sent. After the time runs out, the photo/video will disappear forever, just like in Secret Chats. If the recipient tries to make a screenshot of your disappearing media, you’ll get a notification immediately.

Starting today, you can add a bio to your profile by typing a few words about yourself in Settings. Every time you stumble upon new users in large groups you might want to learn more about them. That’s where bios can help. In addition to this, the stickers are now more easily accessible and perfectly arranged for the better user experience.
