Unigram 10.0 came out today bringing quite a bit of new features. As Telegram turned 10 years old yesterday, I’ll leave the explanations to the
official blog post.
INFINITE REACTIONS, EMOJI STATUSES AND MUCH MORE
A new expandable reaction menu was added in private chats and groups.
All users get access to dozens of new reactions, including reactions previously reserved for Premium users.
The reactions you use most frequently will always be displayed at the top.
Premium users can react to messages with thousands of custom emoji and add up to 3 reactions to each message.
Group admins can control whether custom reactions are allowed in their groups.
We've added an option to report spam when opening a user's profile from a reaction. (Internet rule number N: if something exists, sooner or later, it will be used for spam).
Premium: Emoji Statuses
Premium users can add an animated emoji status next to their name to display their current activity.
To set a status, tap your Premium badge in the chat list or Settings.
Popular suggestions for working, sleeping, traveling and more will be shown at the top.
To set a status for a specific duration like 1 hour or 2 days, press and hold the emoji.
New Username Links
A new format was supported for username links, in addition to "t.me/username." You can now open Telegram accounts, groups or channels using links like "username.t.me" or "https://username.t.me."
Improved Login Flow
We've improved the registration and login experience with slick animations and a smoother UI.
If you frequently re-login on Telegram, you can sign in faster using your email.
