Telegram's ancient web app is probably getting close to retirement

Telegram Web has always been a great fallback when you're not on your own computer or using a platform that doesn't properly supports any of the beautiful native apps the social network offers (looking at you, Chrome OS), but it's far from pretty. It looks dated compared to the other Telegram apps and doesn't offer newer features like stickers and voice calls. That's where two new Telegram web applications come in — they feel much more modern, come with tons of animations, and they support stickers.

Telegram X's first update in nearly a year is loaded with new emoji, improved dark mode support, and more

Telegram X's first update in nearly a year is loaded with new emoji, improved dark mode support, and more

Using an app billed as "experimental" comes with its fair share of risks, including the chance that the developers may just give up on the project altogether. It seemed like Telegram X, the company's alternate client for testing out new features, was headed towards a quiet death following its last update in May, but the app has finally shown a new spark of life. After nearly a year of silence, a new beta version for Telegram X is finally available for download, including several bug fixes and some key features to help modernize the app.

Telegram's new voice chat update brings a little Clubhouse to Android

Clubhouse is the new hotness right now, but the devs only started working on an app for Android in January, and there's no word yet on when that might drop. If you're looking for something to fill the void, Telegram's new update builds on the voice calls introduced at the end of last year, adding audio recording, virtual hand raising, and unlimited listeners.

Telegram now lets you import your chat history from WhatsApp

Telegram now lets you import your chat history from WhatsApp

It would be an understatement to say that Telegram benefited from the quagmire WhatsApp found itself in after it pushed users to accept its Facebook-or-die terms of service. In January alone, the messaging service added over 100 million users. Now to make things easier for those considering switching, Telegram is rolling out the ability to import existing WhatsApp chats.

Beeper promises chat app unity and iMessage on Android

Beeper promises chat app unity and iMessage on Android

Many Android fans believe in a sort of holy grail: That iMessage can somehow be brought to Android. Almost everything else when moving from iOS to Android has a workaround, an app, or some way to accommodate it, though iMessage remains an Apple-controlled platform exclusive with a dominating presence in the US market. But a new app formally launching today called Beeper aims to change that, delivering not just iMessage for Android, but a single unified messaging app for all your other services, too, like Telegram, Slack, Signal, Twitter DMs, Discord, Hangouts, and even IRC.
