Telegram for Android and iOS Brings Video Calling

Video Calling comes to Telegram in Alpha

Telegram has rolled out a new update bringing an alpha version of video calling on both Android and iOS.

You can start a video call from your contact’s profile page, and switch video on or off at any time during voice calls. Like all other video content on Telegram, video calls support picture-in-picture mode, allowing you to scroll through chats and multitask while maintaining eye contact.

All video calls are protected with end-to-end encryption. To confirm your connection, compare the four emoji shown on-screen for you and your chat partner – if they match, your call is 100% secured by encryption also used in Telegram’s Secret Chats and Voice Calls.

Video calling is currently in Alpha stage and Telegram say that Video calls will receive more features and improvements in future versions, as the company works towards launching group video calls in the coming months.

Additionally, the update brings another batch of new animated emoji.
