The most controversial messenger in Brazil, in turn, presented an appeal that may discourage group members from cheering up and uttering illegalities (or not).

The call Slow mode (Slow Mode) allows group administrators to set a minimum time for members to send messages in a row, which can range from 30 seconds to 1 hour. The idea is to make the conversation in large groups more orderly and, as Telegram defines it, ‚Äúto increase the value of each individual message‚ÄĚ.

The new version of the messenger also gives you the option to send a silent message for any contact or group. If you do this, the person will receive a notification as usual (unless your contact is muted, of course), but your device will not make any kind of sound which is great in case you want to send a message in the middle of the call. dawn but not sure if the person has the habit of leaving the phone in Silent Mode.

To do this, just hold the submit button and opt for the new option.

Finally, updating Telegram allows you to choose different highlight colors in Dark Mode and assign ‚Äútitles‚ÄĚ to group administrators.
