Telegram Update Lets You Translate Message And More

Telegram update brings several new features such as message translation, reactions and themed QR codes.

Telegram recently released an update for its users on the occasion of the New Year. With this update, the Telegram app brings a couple of new features to make the texting experience interesting. The new features include reactions, message translation, themed QR codes, and hidden text (spoilers).

The Telegram update 12 is rolling out to users on Android and iOS devices. You can download the update via the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Users can now react to a specific message with emojis without even sending a new message. Each reaction appears with its own unique animation.

The Reactions are available in private chats while groups also get the feature only when group admins allow. Admins can control reactions via their group or channel’s Info Page > Edit > Reactions.

Users can change the default reaction to another emoji in Settings.

Android: Chat Settings > Quick Reaction.
iOS: Stickers and Emoji > Quick Reaction.

Further, with this new update, users can translate any message into another language from within the app. The translation feature is available on all Android devices and iPhones running on iOS 15 and newer versions. Note that the translation is available in as many languages as the number present on OS.

You can enable translation in Settings > Language. This will add a dedicated Translate button to the context menu while selecting a message.

Telegram has also introduced Spoiler Messages – a feature that allows a user to hide a certain portion of the text. Users will need to use the ‘Spoiler’ formatting for the same. The “spoiler” message won’t be visible in the chat list and notifications unless you tap on it.

Further, users can now share a stylized version of their themed QR codes to share with the world. One can Tap the new QR code icon next to the username of a person (or from a chat’s info page), choose the colors and pattern that fit best, then print, post or share their QR codes to other apps and platforms.
