Telegram, a popular messaging app that introduced voice chat last December and has since released the beta version to allow voice chat scheduling – much like Clubhouse.
The test phase of this feature is now complete and it will soon be available in the final version. According to TestingCatalog version 7.7.0 will get the voice chat feature. You can pin the scheduled voice chat to one channel, with a countdown which would make it visible to all users.
What is the function of this feature?
You can use the voice chat to set up a meeting with your colleague or schedule a session. This will ensure that everyone on that channel does not forget.
Telegram has continued to improve this feature after the release of v7.6.0. You can now schedule voice chat to be used at a later date and the event will be pinned to your channel. The countdown is visible for all subscribers. The blog explained that this feature is useful because you won’t have the option to schedule voice chat manually.
How do I activate voice chat scheduling?
This is how to schedule a Telegram voice chat:
First, update Telegram to the most recent beta version v7.7.0.
– Create a Telegram channel you own.
– Click on the Channel icon or the Three-Dot Menu in Settings.
– Tap on “Start voice chat”.
Select the option “Schedule voicechat”
Select the date and time you wish to start, then tap the “Start!” option.
Telegram is currently testing the new feature. It has been also reported that users can change their description and name while in a chat, without having to leave the channel. Because many users are trying to view other profiles in a chat, this feature has been implemented. Users can also change their name to allow moderators to identify them.
While stress testing their voice chats with beta testers, Telegram discovered some interesting patterns. While listening to the speech, many listeners browsed other profiles. The voice chat host could also use it to choose speakers based upon their profiles description,” said the blog.
