The latest version of the popular Telegram messenger has added a useful and long-awaited feature – the ability to make video calls. This feature was launched in a test (experimental) mode and is available only to iPhone and iPad owners. Thus, the demanded feature of the application, promised in April this year, was partially satisfied, according to Durov's Code.

To use the new Telegram feature, you need to meet the following requirements:

  1. Update Telegram to version 6.3 via Apple AppStore;
  2. 10 times click on the “Settings” icon, which will open the hidden menu (Debug);
  3. Activate the “Experimental feature” option in the menu.

After activating the experimental function, the “Video call” button will appear, if you drag down the avatar, and users who have activated this feature will have a similar icon opposite their profile in the contact list – they can be called by video link.

Users note that the quality of video calls is at the level of Viber or Facebook Messenger, but calls very often end up at the wrong time. Therefore, it is not yet possible to use this opportunity in full force. When the feature will become fully available on all mobile platforms, it is not reported. Telegram promised to launch group video calling features by the end of 2020.

Recall that earlier in Telegram, due to a global outage, no messages were sent and publics disappeared. We also showed you how to make stickers in Viber earlier.
