Telegram for iOS gets new drawing tools, profile pictures for contacts

The latest 2022 update for Telegram is here, making the instant messaging platform even more convenient to use. Along with some bug fixes, the latest edition of Telegram also introduces new features and capabilities, such as zero storage usage, new drawing tools, and an option to change contacts’ profile photos.

Users can now download the latest edition of Telegram from the Apple App Store. Here is an overview of all the main features that Telegram has introduced for iPhone users. Telegram has also added features like hiding group members and new animated and interactive emojis.

hidden means

You can now send hidden media on Telegram. Users can choose to share an image or video with a glossy overlay, which automatically disappears as soon as the recipient opens the media. This is a welcome feature for those who want to send media as a surprise to a friend or family member.

To send hidden media in Telegram, go to the attachments menu, select one or more media and click Hide with spoiler to add a shiny layer to your photo in Telegram chat.

Zero storage user

This is a great feature for those who use Telegram with limited internal storage on their phone. This feature will store all the photos and videos in the Telegram cloud, which can be downloaded whenever needed. Users can now select the cache size (how much storage Telegram can use) and when to delete cache media (a day, a week or a month), which will automatically free up internal storage.

New drawing tools

Telegram has also gotten new drawing tools, including a blur tool, an option to add text to images, and users can add custom emojis to images as well.

New profile picture options

You can now set a custom profile picture for individual contacts, which will only be visible to you. Similarly, you can also set a public profile picture, which will be visible to everyone else.
