Discussion
Lots of new stuff in Telegram 5.6, but since Telegram doesn't have a big developer/press event, these updates may get missed by many in light of the Googles, Apples, Amazons, and Facebooks taking up the oxygen this press cycle. Perhaps the more interesting strategic decision is to enhance forwarding and sharing while WhatsApp is pulling back on free-for-all sharing, limiting reshares to 5 hops.
Still waiting for chats/channels grouping.
What's the plan for Telegram X? It's no longer available on the iOS App Store. Is Telegram 5.6 replacing Telegram X?
Nice! Wish the spammers and bots were eliminated
Please add filters to chat list. It's so overwhelming to have all groups, channels, private messages in one place.
