Telegram has released Telegram 5.3 with a great new implementation for chat wallpapers which Telegram is calling Chat Backgrounds 2.0.
Telegram backgrounds now support motion and blur effects. You can also set any colour as your background, apply a pattern and tweak its intensity. You can now search the web for wallpapers, add effects and then share your backgrounds with friends via links. You can set any photo from your gallery as your chat background. On Android, you can add some extra effects in the built-in photo editor.
The best feature however is that after all this work you can now share your efforts with your friends on your network.
If that all sounds like too much work, the update also comes with a series of built-in themes.
