Telegram update brings replace media, vCards sharing, mark as unread, 2X voice messages, and more

Telegram update

Telegram is receiving a new update bringing the version number to 4.8.3 for iOS and 4.8.10 for Android, and this brings several nifty features and improvements.

With the new Telegram update, you can now just replace photos or videos with the correct versions right away in case if you have sent a wrong image by accident. To replace the image, start editing the image and then tap the paperclip button to replace the attached media. You can also add captions to photos or videos. You can now switch to enable 2X playback for the audio clips you might have received.

Telegram 2X Voice

You can also mark the messages as read or unread; this offers a quick way to get less important messages out of the way and highlight the chats that require your attention. With this update, you can select what data you want to send when sharing a contact. You can now share contacts with multiple numbers. When you open a chat from Global Search and then go back, you will return to the search results and keep your position in the list.

Telegram VCard

However, Android is getting three more features; you can now tap and hold on profile pictures in the chats list to preview chats. You can now use the create link option in the formatting menu to make text URLs, and finally, it is now possible to cancel sending messages before they are sent.
