Telegram desktop app updated with new background feature

In this day and age of increased snooping by both hackers and governments, it has never been more important to use an anonymous messaging service with end-to-end encryption which is not driven by some commercial or political agenda.

Popular privacy-focused messaging app Telegram has been updated in the Microsoft Store to version 1.5.12.

According to the changelog the update brings two new minor feature:

  • Apply blur effects to backgrounds.
  • Use the backgrounds you set in Telegram Desktop in all other Telegram apps.

The mobile apps recently themselves gained a series of background wallpaper-related improvements, and this update brings the desktop app somewhat in sync with them.

Support a privacy-focussed alternative by getting the app from the Microsoft Store here.
