New Official Telegram Private beta app pops up in the Windows Store

A new private version of the popular Telegram Messenger app has shown up in the Windows Store.

The new app, which is unfortunately still a WP8.1 and not a UWP app, includes a number of improvements, including being able to reply to messages from the notifications toast.
