Telegram has now started to roll out a rather large update for everyone through the Google Play Store. Aside from some solid design changes throughout the app to improve usability, Telegram has also added the ability to archive chats, perform bulk actions, and more!

What's New

  • Swipe left on any chat to archive it.
  • Swipe left on your archive to hide it from the chat list.
  • Pin an unlimited number of chats in your archive.
  • See who is online straight from the chat list and sharing menu.
  • Select multiple chats in the chats list to delete, pin or archive them.
  • Choose between two-line and three-line chats in the chat list.
  • Enjoy the redesigned app icon and menus throughout the app.
  • Use the quick 'Forward' buttons when selecting messages.

With consumer BBM shutting down on May 31st, plenty of folks have noted they have moved to Telegram instead of BBM Enterprise. If that's you, be sure to get the latest Telegram downloaded and let me know what you think of the improvements in the comments.
