Stories Will Appear In Telegram
Telegram is considering implementing an analog of the Stories format in messenger, which was "copied" in many other social networks and even banking apps after its release in Snapchat and Instagram, according to a source close to the messenger.
The decision to implement stories in one form or another has not yet been made definitively, but the team is actively discussing this feature due to a large number of requests from users (mostly from outside of Russia). At the same time, the source noted that at the moment, Telegram's priority is video calls, and only after their full implementation, the developers will make a decision about other key functions of the messenger.
Together with the news aggregator, the stories analog can become one of the tools that will allow users to find new content sources inside the messenger. At the moment, such features are obviously not enough in Telegram.
Recall that the next release of Telegram will bring video calls to iOS devices, while users of Android smartphones will have to wait for them for some time. A source close to messenger confirmed this information. The update should be released by the end of July.
