The upgrade to Telegram 6.3 It is already available on Google Play and the App Store and, as we are used to, with a good amount of news under the arm on several fronts, from new functions to improvements or important privacy news.

Telegram 6.3 uploads the maximum file size at 2 GB, improves the functionality of close people, incorporates the possibility of using a profile video and finally lets you mute the chats of people you do not have in your contact list.

Profile Videos

Profile photos are a thing of the past. Now on Telegram you can use profile videos, which are animated when displaying your profile and as a photo in other places (for example, in the chat list).

Telegram allows you to create a profile video using the app’s integrated camera or importing a video that you already have on your mobile. Then you must adjust the crop, duration and snapshot you want to choose as a profile photo, and voila.

Improvements in ‘People around’

Telegram has long incorporated the possibility of find people nearby to chat, as a new way of making friends with strangers. The functionality has been improved on several occasions, and in this latest version two changes are added.

The first of them is that the distance at which the person is is indicated in the chat window. The second, that you suggest a sticker to break the ice, which will be sent to the contact just by tapping on it.

Mute chats from strangers

Until now, Telegram did not have any filter to prevent someone from writing to you based on your username or phone number. In this latest version, its creators have announced a new privacy setting so that unknown chats are automatically archived.

Shipments up to 2GB and other changes

The latest version of Telegram increases the maximum file size that can be sent to other people up to 2 GB. It is a brutal figure, although the truth is that the previous figure was already: 1.5 GB.

Other changes available in this update are more animated emojis, the filter to soften the skin in the multimedia editor of the application, better statistics for groups of more than 500 members, a renewed music player for Android, video cropping and rotation and last but not least, a virtual penalty if you send the emoji of a soccer ball.
