Pavel Durov claimed recently that

"Attention: Telegram publishes its official announcements only at https://telegram.org . Everything else is most likely scam." Going to be skeptical until I see some official confirmation from Telegram

Pros:

fast, slick and nice new theme

Cons:

No official announcement. Still skeptical

This is the second official account of Telegram. It was used when founder had problems with access to the first account, which was temporarily conquered by the vk.com.

I'm also looking for further info. But if you look below, Pavel is the maker of this app.

The already great Telegram, even better.

Pros:

-Surprisingly faster than the already fast og Telegram app

- Bunch of fluid animations all over the UI

- Themes

- Even more optimized

Cons:

- Lacks some features from the og App, looks like they're slower to implement new features.

I'm a huge fun of telegram in general and use almost since launch. This version makes telegram even faster and slicker. Right now it doesn't differ much from its classic version but I believe in future we gonna see more difference.

Icon on iOS is bad :(

Pros:

Really fast! Has nice message bubble animations inside of the dialog.

Cons:

I don't like the icon :(

Please bring back the feature that allows muted group chats to increase the app icon badge. This was removed from the official macOS client when it was rewritten in Swift, and now also from the iOS app. It is one of my critical use cases to have the badge increased when there are new messages in a muted group. Ideally it should be a per-group option, but global would be fine as well.

Thanks!

Pros:

Very fast and stable, nice new theme

Cons:

Still missing a few crucial features
