Telegram has finally introduced group video calling.

App for texting and chatting in real-time Telegram has finally enabled group video chat to its mobile and desktop apps, something the company had previously claimed will be available in April 2020. The ability to convert voice discussions in any group on the platform into video calls is achieved by pressing the camera icon, which activates the video camera on your smartphone.

The number of users who may engage in an audio call is limitless, according to Telegram, but the number of individuals who can participate in group video chats is restricted to the first 30 people who join a voice chat. According to the company’s release, it expects to raise the cap “shortly.” During a video call, users may also share their displays with the other party.

Telegram CEO Pavel Durov said in January that the business had hit 500 million active users, many of whom had switched to the network when the Facebook-owned competitor messaging platform WhatsApp botched the implementation of a new privacy policy, prompting many to switch. Despite this, Telegram’s launch of group video calls is behind the competition; WhatsApp, which had 2 billion users as of February, introduced group video and voice calling in the same year.
