He also mentioned that this new video calls feature also will support web-based video conferencing. He spoke about how they will be adding a “video dimension” to their voice chats in the coming month (May). And how this feature will make Telegram a more powerful platform for group video calls.
Telegram CEO Pavel Durov stated the following in regards to that:
“Screen sharing, encryption, noise-canceling, desktop and tablet support — everything you can expect from a modern video conferencing tool, but with Telegram-level UI, speed and encryption.”
Telegram originally planned to add the video calls feature to its messaging app at some point in 2020. During the pandemic, Telegram has improved vastly while ensuring security for users.
In April 2020, the company highlighted that throughout the pandemic, to mark passing 400M users, it addressed that the global lockdown had “highlighted the need for a trusted video communication tool”. The new features will make their way to both iOS and Android in May.
