Suggested by Team 9.18: @edu918 @Dima_797 @kondratyevdev

'We're introducing a new format of live messages in up-to-date 9:16 size. No more extra clicks!

Now you can record videos, zoom in and zoom out, switch camera from frontal to rear, lock your screen while recording without lifting your finger from the screen.

The neural network identifies the area that needs to be in focus (circle) for you, no need for extra taps. You can edit recorded videos on the spot, add a color correction, or paint something — all in all, a latter-day approach in exchanging messages on the familiar platform.'

Suggested by @edu918, 'Media files are now part and parcel of new Quiz 2.0, which makes them highly interactive. Moreover, Quiz 2.0 remains in media viewer mode.'

Suggested by @postuf, 'We have developed a solution for the Telegram client that allows you to hide accounts and open them only using a unique password code (see animated preview). There is no trace of hidden accounts. It is impossible to find out if the messenger has hidden accounts and how many there are. The solution is referred to as Double Bottom.'

Suggested by @VladBrozhyk, 'Would love to have the ability to set mute duration myself, without predetermined options.'
Suggested by @alxlg:

"News" and/or "Photos" tabs in the main view. The News tab shows all the messages in subscribed channels (public and private). "Photos" does the same but shows only photos (and short video?) from channels but with a more Instagram-like UI. There should be an option to view those messages/photos in their channels.

Of course this is supposed to be optional: maybe add "News" and/or "Photos" from current tabs editor. It would also be nice if Telegram prompt users with many channels with something like "It looks like you subscribed to many channels, do you like to display updates from them in their own tab?"

'Notifications Chat — all communication-related notifications in one place: replies to your comments, sent scheduled messages and notifications about the start of a Voice Chats you have subscribed to. You can get into it from the chats list and side menu.

Service notifications that come now will continue to exist, but they will only send account login codes, account login information, codes for authorization on sites via telegram, newsletters about updates and other service messages not directly related to communication.'

Suggested by @iceled and @TierOhneNation:

'The Waiting Room could be useful for managing access to the voice chat. Open the Waiting Room by tapping three dots in main Voice Chat screen and you can see who is awaiting for approval to your Voice Chat. From there you can decide if you want to let people in or block them (per person or in batch).'

'Feed is a new tab that allows you to watch all the posts from your feeds at once. You can sort the posts in the feed by date, views and comments. The feed supports folders, so you can group your channels by certain characteristics, such as a news channels or a sports channels. The concept also introduces the new #headlines feature, which groups all the posts in the feed for the day and displays them as scrollable cards with a picture and the first lines of the post. All of these features make viewing content from your channels as productive as possible and ensure you don't miss any news.'

Suggested by @iceled,

'In the current implementation, profiles on Android have several problems. For example, creating a Voice Chat is possible only through the pop-up menu. Also, the button to go to the discussion group of the channel and the button to open a chat with the person are similar, and this can be confusing for users.

Too many interface elements are being used, such as icons at the top (and there can be up to 3 of them nearby), a round icon for switching to a chat / discussion group, and a toggle switch for managing notifications.

In my implementation, many actions can be performed by clicking on the identical buttons, which greatly simplifies the user interface. For most actions in the profile, you will need to make just one click.'
