Version 1.8.0 now allows users to send messages in the background (messages are sent even after force-quitting the app), which will definitely address the issue of messages not sending when the app crashes. In addition, you can now auto-download media in the background.
The app also now handles interrupted uploads “properly” and also received new vibration patterns, an improved blocking UI, and the ability to delete older profile pictures in any order.
Of course, where would an app update be without the usual round of improvements and bug fixes, which Telegram says the new update contains “a lot” of.
If you haven’t yet recieved the new update notification on your device, you can grab the latest Telegram version directly via the Google Play Store.
