New video enhancement features would enable users to tweak videos in just two taps. Users will be able to tweak parameters like saturation, brightness, and a zoom-in option while drawing.
Now users will be able to add animated stickers to any video or photos they want. Animated stickers are a new addition to the instant messaging platform. Telegram has also updated its GIF panel with the addition of a ‘Trending’ section and emoji-based tabs. The GIF loading time has also been improved so it should be faster now.

Telegram has enhanced its security in its latest update. Telegram has added Two-step verification for its users. To activate this new security feature, the user can click on the Privacy and Security option and enable a Two-step verification security lock. Users need to set-up a new password by entering it twice followed by a password hint.
This feature would be responsible to protect the app data and securing accounts from cloning in the future. Now onward if this Two-step authentication password is enabled on a given account, anyone trying to log-in from a new device that person needs to know the password, along with the OTP,” the company said in a statement.
Telegram has also provided a new Cache memory management tool directly to clean-up temporary memory as per the user’s requirement. Users can go to Settings > Data and Storage > Storage usage to see how much storage is used by the files from Telegram divided into segments like Photos, Documents, Music, Voice/ Video messages, Animated stickers, and other files.
If you clear cache memory it will only delete unnecessary files that can later be downloaded from the Telegram cloud. A user can also clear the local database where texts of cached messages will be compressed to save space on the internal disk.
