For all the Telegram users out there, the app has come up with Voice Chat 2.0. This new feature will completely enhance your app usage. Similar to Clubhouse, you can now have live voice chat sessions with any set of people.
Some of the exciting features of Voice Chat 2.0 include recording, auto-saving, inviting new participants and conducting civilized live sessions. By “civilized”, we mean that the admin can mute all the listeners. They can raise their hand if they wish to speak.
How Does Telegram Voice Chat 2.0 Work?
Let’s say you want to conduct a live voice chat session with a non-existing group. You need to open the channel or group where you’re an admin.
When you start a voice chat session, you can create invite links that can be separate for speakers and listeners. If you invited the wrong person by mistake, you can cancel the message or even replace the recipient. The moment you start, it automatically starts recording. When you end the session, you’ll find the recording in your Saved Messages.
What about joining a live session?
If you’re a participant and want to speak, there is a feature where you raise your hand. The admin recognizes you from your bio and lets you speak when it’s the right time. This makes the meeting smoother and better.
On the other hand, if you’re a celebrity, you can use your public channel to join a meeting. This saves you from granting access to your personal account.
To sum it up, Telegram is now becoming exciting for their users. It is directly competing Clubhouse for live voice chat sessions. The biggest advantage is that there is no limit to the number of participants along with full privacy protection.
