Telegram launches its version 7.0 in a stable way for Android phones and in this version video calls are already introduced for everyone.
At the beginning of the year, Telegram celebrated having reached 400 million users worldwide, something they did with an important announcement. Since the application confirmed that video calls were going to be a reality in a few months, although they did not give dates or give more clues about the introduction of this function in the application.
This week Telegram beta 7.0 was launched, where these video calls could already be used in the application, as we already showed you . The application now launches its new stable version, where these video calls are now available to all users with Android phones. You can now try Telegram video calls: how to do it
Telegram video calls are real
Video calls have become a function of great need in 2020. Therefore, it is important that an application such as Telegram has also officially introduced them, for now only on Android phones. Thanks to them you will be able to be in contact with your friends, family or colleagues in a simple way. To start one, you just have to enter that person’s profile and press to make the call.
During video calls in the application, you have the possibility to turn the video on or off , as well as mute your microphone. It is also possible to change the camera, so that the other person sees the objects or places at which you point with your rear camera. In addition, they have support for picture-in-picture mode, so you can do other tasks while you’re on that video call.Video player00:0000:18
Telegram confirms that these video calls are protected with end-to-end encryption . If you want to confirm your connection, you can compare the four emojis that appear on the screen. If they are the same emojis for both, then the call is 100% protected. In our test we saw them, but it was not known that this was the functionality of them, but now it is confirmed. In addition, the application confirms that they are working on launching group video calls in a few months, but we do not have dates at the moment.
Along with these video calls, Telegram has also introduced a series of new animated emojis in this new version 7.0. The update of the messaging application is already a reality, so you will be able to download it from the Play Store, but also the official file of the app, to update it directly.
