Telegram which is a freeware, cross-platform, cloud-based instant messaging platform that is popular for its end-to-end encrypted video calling, VoIP, file sharing, and several other features is all set to launch its long-awaited Group video calling update.
Telegram will get group video calls next month, with what’s being promoted as a fully-featured implementation that includes support for web-based videoconferencing. Telegram’s last update was its audio-chat feature similar to Clubhouse that had some extra options.
“We will be adding a video dimension to our voice chats in May, making Telegram a powerful platform for group video calls,” wrote Founder Pavel Durov in a (text) message posted to his official Telegram channel today.
The new update will include a screen sharing option, encryption, noise-canceling, desktop and tablet support with Telegram-level UI, speed, and encryption.
Telegram introduced a one-on-one video calling feature last august and had suggested the launch of group video call soon, but caused the delay, maybe to enhance more security for group video calling.
