One of the most prominent features of Telegram’s latest update is that anyone can now use the translation platform to create their own custom language packs – and translate Telegram into any minority language or local dialect. To translate the interface of your app, you should follow the dedicated sharing link of the desired language. Sharing links can be obtained in the translation panel. Each language also gets its own public group for discussions.  Once a user switches to your translation, all changes you apply in the interface will be applied immediately.

Another unique feature of Telegram is the Instant View technology that allows Telegram users to view web pages in a consistent way, with zero loading time. Now the platform supports right-to-left languages, blocks of related articles, image links, tables, nested lists, horizontal scrolling, collapsible text blocks and much more. Soon Telegram’s team will announce a new crowdsourcing contest to make Instant View pages available for an even larger part of the internet.

Telegram for Android has now reached version 5.0 and received a major overhaul in the design. It is now much easier to access shared media from the profiles of users, groups, and channels. Shared media now offers high-quality crisp previews, increased loading speed, more info in the links and files sections. Last but not least, users now can zoom videos during playback and browse full-resolution images sent as documents just like normal photos, by swiping left and right.
