Telegram has announced it’s now allowing up to 1,000 viewers to join group video calls at the same time.
After the release of group video calls last month, Telegram has added even more new features and improvements with its latest release.

Among others included in this update is a feature called “Group Video Calls 2.0,” which extends the maximum number of participants who can watch and take part in a video call to 1,000 viewers.
It’s important to note that the maximum number of participants who can stream their own video during a video call remains at 30 for now.
With 1,000 people watching, broadcasters can rack up quite an audience for their videos, and participants can watch “anything from online lectures to live rap battles,” according to the company.
Other improvements to Telegram’s video messaging service include higher resolution video streaming, the option to full-screen a video with just a tap, and the possibility to record a video whilst playing any audio from your device at the same time without pausing it.
The latter allows you to sing along to your favorite songs, or reply without pausing your podcast.
Telegram has also upped the video calling game with screen sharing for one-on-one video calls, auto-deletion for messages older than a month (previously set for one-week auto-deletion), and more precise drawing.
Furthermore, you can now zoom in when recording with your phone’s rear camera.
Finally, Telegram has also added animation during the passcode lock screen and when sending messages on Android, an option that was already available to iOS app users.
