In honor of its 7th anniversary, the developers of the Telegam messenger have implemented the video calling feature on Android, which users have been asking for for so long. Until recently, the feature was only available to iPhone and iPad owners in experimental mode. However, it is too early to talk about a full-fledged launch – the function is still at the alpha stage, so it may not work perfectly.

“We continue to devote all our efforts to creating high-quality applications and developing new Telegram functions. Today we are pleased to present an innovation that users have often asked us about – fast and secure video calls,” the developers of the messenger said on their official blog.

Obviously, the Telegram developers completed the preparatory work, conducted debugging and testing and found the innovation stable enough to present it to the public of Android users. The messenger also explained why the function of video calls, although there is, is not yet available to all iOS users – on iPhone and iPad it needs to be activated in a non-trivial way. According to Telegram, this happened due to the fact that Apple moderators did not have time to check the new version of the application in time.

End-to-end encryption is used to protect data in video calls. To make sure that the connection is secure, just compare the four emoji that you and your interlocutor see on the screen: if the characters match, the call is reliably protected by encryption, which is used for secret chats and voice calls.

The development team is currently planning to add new features to the messenger, as well as launch group video calls in the coming months. On the occasion of the birthday, Telegram has also expanded the set of animated emojis. To watch the animated version, send one of these emojis to any chat in a separate message.
