Latest Telegram Update Brings Search Filters and Anonymous Admins
The latest update on Telegram has introduced cool features, like Search Filters, Anonymous Group Admins, Channel Comments. With Search Filters users can find memes on Telegram Cloud.
According to Telegram, users can now find media, links, files and other more easily with the new Search Filters. For example, in order to search links shared on a particular date, users can just type “October 4” or “Yesterday” and the app will return the results accordingly. Also by typing the name of any person, group, channel, or bot will add a filter.
Keeping up with privacy, for group admins that are used to disseminate sensitive information.
“Telegram is increasingly used to organise protests for democracy and freedom. Today we’re introducing another tool for safer protests,” the company said.
To keep the identity hidden, admins can toggle Remain Anonymous in Admin rights to enable Batman mode. This mode allows the admins to keep their identity hidden from the group members in the list. The messages sent by the admins will be signed with the group name, similar to the one we see in channel posts.
The latest update, also added a comment button to posts on channels with discussion groups. The comments by the members will show up in a thread of their own as well as in the discussion group “to keep everyone in the loop and make it easier for admins to keep the conversation civil.” Even if a person is not a member of the channel’s discussion group, they will be notified about replies on their comments via a new chat called Replies. To enable discussions in your own channel, head to Channel Settings > Discussion.
