    fast, slick and nice new theme


    No official announcement. Still skeptical

    Pavel Durov claimed recently that

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

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


    I don't like the icon :(

    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 :(

    Very fast and stable, nice new theme


    Still missing a few crucial features

    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.

    -Surprisingly faster than the already fast og Telegram app

    - Bunch of fluid animations all over the UI

    - Themes

    - Even more optimized


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

    The already great Telegram, even better.

    Speed, animations


    No official announcement from / no Russian keyboard

    Until we see official announcement it looks sketchy.
