Telegram Messenger App Tricks

#1. Open External Links within Telegram

Switching between applications on a smartphone can sometimes be sluggish and time-taking especially for phones with a slow processor which a majority of smartphones today have, let alone premium phones such as iPhone and Samsung’s. Telegram’s in-app browser feature resolves that problem. It lets you open external links within that app itself so that you don’t have to switch between applications, thus boosting your productivity, consequently saving you a lot of time.

#2. Listen to Audio Messages by Raising the Phone

Listening to audio messages can sometimes be awkward. Telegram’s ‘raise to speak’ and ‘raise to listen’ feature is a mind-blowing solution to that. While chatting with someone if you get an audio clip, just raise your phone near your ear as if you’re talking on the phone and the combination of the proximity sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer do the magic.
