Messaging app Telegram has rolled out ‘Stories’ features to all the users.
The company launched the feature on its 10th birthday and said that its “our biggest update yet.”
“In this update, we launch Stories – with a unique dual camera mode, granular privacy settings, flexible duration options and much more,” Telegram said in a statement.
Telegram said that the ‘Stories’ feature was by far the “most-requested feature” in the history of the messaging app.
“Telegram Stories have all the things you’d expect – and plenty more that have never been done before,” the statement said.
‘First Time In The History Of Social Media’
Telegram said that for the “first time in the history of social media”, users will be able to update any element of their story at any time – changing its visibility, caption, on-screen text, stickers or anything else – without having to delete and repost it from scratch.
How To Edit Story On Telegram?
To edit a story on Telegram, open it on the device you posted it from and tap ⋮ or ⋯ > Edit Story.
Dual Camera Mode
To capture scenes from every angle, stories can take photos or videos with both the front and rear camera of your device simultaneously – letting users choose which camera goes where, even while recording. The other features introduced by Telegram in Stories include stickers, locations and captions.
Granular Privacy Settings
According to Telegram, when posting a story, users can select from 4 privacy settings: Everyone, My Contacts, Close Friends and Selected Contacts. Each option can be completely customized, allowing them to include or exclude any users. A user can also select a list of users who will never see their story. To keep a story even more private, users can disable screenshots to prevent viewers from saving or sharing it.
Stories in Profiles
Stories can last for a user’s choice of 6, 12, 24 or 48 hours. They can also post them to their profile, arranged in a gorgeous grid — where both old contacts and new connections can see theirhighlight reel for as long as they want.
