Telegram has launched a brand new replace on Frida, only a day after Telegram CEO and founder Pavel Durov mentioned the replace had been in Apple’s app overview for 2 weeks with out clarification. The replace is full of emoji-related options, however one is lacking as a result of Apple particularly requested for it to be eliminated, in response to Durov.
“After intensive protection of my earlier put up, Apple has responded to us with a request to cut back the pending Telegram replace by eradicating Telemoji – high-quality vector animated variations of the usual emoji,” Durov wrote on his Telegram channel on Friday . “This can be a puzzling transfer on Apple’s half, as Telemoji would have introduced a brand new dimension to its low-resolution static emoji and considerably enriched its ecosystem.”
You may see the Telemoji in a brief video embedded with Durov’s put up (and I made a GIF of the video he shared). Personally, I feel Telemoji appears to be like like numerous enjoyable – I like the way it provides a bit of life to the static emoji faces I’ve turn out to be fairly conversant in. However I believe that Apple took problem with one other firm altering its design on this means, which is why it requested Telegram to take away Telemoji from the replace. Apple and Telegram didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
The replace is loaded with different new emoji enhancements, although. Customers who subscribe to Telegram’s lately launched $four.99 Premium service will be capable of add and use customized emojis in chats with pals, and Telegram gives 10 customized packs with over 500 emojis to get you began. Free customers will be capable of see any of the animated emojis and use them of their saved messages.
Telegram has additionally up to date the sticker panel on iOS, creating separate tabs for stickers, GIFs, and emoji, like what you may be conversant in in Telegram on Android, desktop, or the online. You may learn the total checklist of updates within the Telegram weblog put up.
Extra enhancements are on the best way. In “a number of weeks,” Telegram will let customers add any customized emoji as a message response, Durov says, although that will probably be a Premium function to start with. I am of the opinion that emoji reactions are literally good – the extra methods to make use of emoji, the higher.
