Unigram UWP (Telegram) drops 'preview', gains updates

Published by at

Unigram, the third-party Telegram client for Windows 10 devices has had several updates since our launch story for the app. Unigram UWP has now dropped the 'Preview' tag, thanks to being approved by Telegram as a recognised third-party client. Unigram’s official channel on Telegram (@unigram) has also received a verified badge. See below for a summarised changelog.

Here's an approximate changelog since our last story:

  • Groups with unread mentions and replies to you are now marked with an ‘@’ badge in the chats list.
  • Navigate new mentions and replies to you in a group using the new ‘@’ button.
  • Tap on any sticker to add it your Favorite Stickers and quickly access it from the redesigned sticker panel.
  • Check signal strength when on a Telegram call using the new indicator.
  • Add an official sticker set for your group which all members will be able to use without adding while chatting in your group (100+ member groups only).
  • Search through messages of a particular user in any group. To do this, tap ‘…’ in the top right corner when in a group > Search > tap the new ‘Search by member’ icon in the bottom right corner.
  • While searching, select a user to browse all of their messages in the group or add a keyword to narrow down search results.
  • Get secure thanks to the new Passcode Lock option.
  • Better replies: when clicking on a reply the original message will be highlighted.
  • New photo viewer: you can now scroll through chat photos and videos, profile pictures and instant galleries.
  • More languages: Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Malay, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish and Ukranian are now supported.

Impressive activity and updates, with the last being just a couple of weeks ago. Unigram UWP works across all Windows 10 devices, from phone to desktop to Xbox. I'm not a Telegram user, so I'll illustrate this update round-up with some promo screens of the application, first on Mobile and then on Desktop:



You can grab this in the Store here for any Windows 10-running device... Anybody here use Telegram? How does this client stack up?
