In addition, the update also brings improvements to enhance the user’s experience while using Telegram. You can now greet users with one tap by sending the desired sticker, report fake groups or channels, and much more.
According to the latest information, Telegram is releasing a new beta for Android, which previews many new changes before reaching the stable version. In Telegram Beta 7.5, we receive QR code group invitations, the ability to set time and user limits on invitation links, automatic delete timer for public groups, widget support, and more.
Invite by OR code and custom invite link
Currently, group invitations are only possible through the invitation link. With Telegram 7.5 update, group owners can now generate a QR code to allow users to join the group by scanning the code. Group owners also have the ability to set an expiration date on the invitation link.
The time limit on QR code and invitation links were first previewed in the macOS client last week and are now also available to Android users.
Widget support for Android
Telegram 7.5 Beta finally adds widget support for Android, allowing users to add a widget to quickly access their favorite chats and channel. There are two types of widgets they are list and folder.
Auto-delete timer for Telegram group admins
The latest beta now allows the group admin to set an auto-delete timer for messages posted in the public admin. You can enable it by clearing the history from the three-dot menu in the right corner of the chat. The timer can be set to 24 hours or 7 days. However, it is also a good idea to allow all group members to set this timer for their messages, as they do for the Signal.
The main feature of this release is the group invites and group QR codes. This update allows the group admins to convert a standard group to a broadcast group. Broadcast groups do not have a maximum number of users, with a maximum of 200K members compared to regular groups. Note that only admins are allowed to post messages in broadcast groups and cannot switch to the general group.
