Telegram Messenger for Windows updated with Snapchat-like new photo editor, more


Telegram has updated their Windows Phone Messenger app to version 1.29.0 with a new photo editor which chases the same Snapchat dream as WhatsApp and Instagram.

The changelog reads:

  • Added new photo editor 2.0 :  By using this you can draw on photos, apply stickers, and write on it;
  • New entry in common groups which allows you to see which groups you have in common with another of our contacts in the phonebook.
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

Telegram Messenger focus on speed and security and allows you to create group chats with up to 200 people so you can stay connected with everyone at once. Plus, you can share videos up to 1GB, send multiple photos from the web, and forward any media you receive in an instant. All your messages are in the cloud, so you can easily access them from any of your devices.

For those interested in maximum privacy, Telegram supports Secret Chats, featuring end-to-end encryption to ensure that a message can only be read by its intended recipient. With Secret Chats, nothing is logged on their servers and you can automatically program the messages to self-destruct from both devices so there is never any record of it.

The updated app can be found in the Store here.
