Saved Messages 2.0, One-Time Voice Messages and 8 More Features


We added 10 new features to Telegram – including upgraded Saved Messages, one-time voice and video messages that delete after playing, detailed read receipts that show what time your message was read, and much more.

Saved Messages 2.0

Every Telegram user has a chat called Saved Messages, a place for notes, reminders, and messages forwarded from other chats.

This update turns Saved Messages into a powerful storage system for your links, media, and bookmarks. You can now view your saved messages by chat or as a list, organize them with tags, and use the new ’Saved’ tab in Shared Media to access messages you saved from any particular chat.

View Saved Messages by Chat

The new View as Chats mode lets you see a list of chats from which you’ve forwarded messages. These chats will contain all the messages you forwarded to Saved Messages from users, groups, and channels. You can pin any of these chats to the top.

Tags for Saved Messages

For even more organization, you can add multiple tags to your Saved Messages that let you quickly filter them in Search.

Because tags are based on emoji, adding a tag is as easy as adding a reaction, but tags can also have names. Tags are already available to all Telegram Premium users.

Saved Messages in Shared Media

Chats, groups, and channels all have a shared media section to swiftly access photos, links, music, and more. This update adds a new ’Saved’ tab as well, containing any messages from that chat that you’ve forwarded to your Saved Messages.

Upgraded Search

We’ve improved searching in all chats, and now it’s easier to navigate your search results and view them as a compact list.

One-Time Voice and Video Messages

The View-Once setting is now available for voice and video messages. Such messages can only be played one time before they are automatically deleted – with an animation that will make you want to send them again and again.

Pause and Resume Recording

While recording any voice or video message, you can now pause and then resume recording later – instead of sending multiple messages.

Read Time in Private Chats

When you send a message, 1 check (✓) means it was delivered, while 2 checks (✓✓) mean it was read – and in 1-on-1 chats, you can now see the exact time when your message was opened.

Read times have their own granular privacy settings, based on the privacy settings of your Last Seen status. If you hide your Last Seen time from certain users, you can also choose to hide your read status from them.

One-Way Last Seen and Read Times

By default, hiding your last seen or read time from a user also hides theirs from you. But with Telegram Premium, you can hide your last seen and read time and still see those of others who share theirs with you.

Private Message Permissions

With this update, Premium users are able to select who can send them messages – either ’Everyone’ or ’My Contacts and Premium Users’. When enabled, users who aren’t contacts or don’t have Premium can’t start chats with you – but can reply if you message them first.

Faster Loading Time and High Quality Stories

Video stories will now load 4x faster. We’ve also added a new setting for Premium users to view video stories in higher quality – if they don’t mind the extra traffic.

Improved Video Messages on iOS

In addition to one-time mode and pausing & resuming, we’ve improved video message recording on iOS. Now, you can enjoy clearer video quality, switch between front and back cameras more quickly, and experience less camera shake.

App Icons on macOS

With the direct version of Telegram for macOS, you can now choose from 15 icons to make your app match your theme or stand out in the dock.
