Telegram has a built-in video editor and photo to GIF converter
Telegram messaging app has been updated with some new features, the most notable of which is the addition of its own built-in video editor. The new feature joins a built-in photo editor that has been added to the app in recent years, allowing users to edit their videos directly in the messaging app. In addition, users get improved work with GIF files and several other useful features.
Telegram has been offering a photo editor for several years, but users still had to run third-party apps to edit their videos. The situation changes with the latest version of Telegram. Users can now edit their videos directly in the media editor, including brightness, contrast, and "improvements" settings, plus users can now add animated stickers to the media.
With this new feature, animated stickers can be quickly inserted into photos and videos in the app, and then shared directly with other Telegram users. According to the company, adding one of these stickers to your photo will turn it into a GIF, which has also received some attention in this update.
Users can now view "trending" gifs in the "Popular" panel, which loads animated images faster than before. Users who like a particular GIF can tap and hold it to save it on the Recent tab to make it easier to access and send it in the future.
Finally, Telegram users will find it easier to move chats to folders by tapping and holding them. For users of the Android version of Telegram, there are also new smooth animations for sending, editing and deleting messages, as well as an improved video player.
