Telegram Desktop 3.1 Introduces Interactive Emoji, Live Stream Recording, and More

Telegram Desktop 3.1 is here with some pretty cool new features: the ability to record live streams and video chats in a group or channel with options to record video and audio or only audio saved in your admin’s Saved Messages panel, as well as support for read receipts in small groups, with the option to view which group members have read it.

And, to make your Telegram sessions more enjoyable and fun, the Telegram Desktop 3.1 update brings 8 new themes for private chats with day and night versions, beautifully animated backgrounds, gradient message bubbles, and unique background patterns. This can only be enabled from a mobile device if you want to enjoy it on your desktop too.
